I Like Citrus Fruits


Whenever I eat a clementine, I always like to eat the biggest slice last. To this end, I hold clementine duels.

I split the clementine into two halves and pick up one of them. I compare the slice on each end to see which one is smaller volume-wise. That is the "loser," and I eat the inferior one immediately. The winner gets to go another round.

Occasionally I will get a mutation, a slice that is misshapen, or pointier, or flatter than the rest. These abnormalities make judging size a tricky procedure.

When I reach the end of the half, I am left with one slice, the most dominant of the herd. This is the slice that shall be devoured last.

There can be only one.
