It is well past Beth’s bed time on Halloween night. She has spent the evening foraging for sweets. The doorbell rings. It is another costumed youngster seeking treats. Beth darts to the door, eager to be the bearer of said treats. She hands out the candy with a grin of immense satisfaction. The experience leaves her hungry for more. She peers out the door, looking for more. Finding none, she steps out on the front porch. Beth’s parents tell her it’s time to come in and get ready for bed. She protests. Her parents beseech her not to ruin the good karma of a good evening. “Didn’t you have fun tonight?”, her mother asks.
“Yes, but I want to have more fun.”
