  1. Two things. Ice cream as it trickles down the cone as you leave the shop. You madly try to lick it into a dome in the summer heat only partially succeeding leaving your fingers sticky and warm. And secondly, the slurp of fresh red watermelon cut into quarter slices , the sound and laughter of children spitting the seeds into the air knowing they are allowed to do the forbidden.
