The counselor walks on the
stage with a big pot, sets it down on a table along with a spoon or ladle, and
sets up a "Back in 5 min" sign before walking offstage.
A camper comes along, eyes the pot, grabs the spoon and takes a big, messy
slurp. Eyes wide, he/she grabs a friend from offstage and stresses how

me. I'll be right back."
A third camper comes by and asks, "What's in the box?"
"I don't know, he replies."
They both examine the box and tilt it enough for some water to run out of the
corner of the box.
The third camper puts his finger under the drip, and to his mouth. "It
taste like grape," then walks off.
A fourth camper, followed by a fifth, and so on, comes by like the third, to
taste the water. Each one gives a different flavor.
The second Scout comes back and says, "Thanks for holding my
