Feeding frenzy

We went to Scoop tonight for a frozen yogurt dessert before bed. Since
it is one of the first nice evenings we've had this summer, it seemed
like a good idea to go down to Kits beach to enjoy the sunset. I told
the kids that they couldn't have any yogurt until we got to the beach.
We stopped the car, they sprinted across the park brandishing their
plastic spoons like swords ready for battle.

The feeding frenzy that followed was a spectacle. I suspect I could
have put thirty maggots at the bottom and they wouldn't have noticed.
They were too busy and focused on consuming volume to observe content.
It was as though I had thrown fresh tuna steaks into a baracuda pond...

Ten second dessert.
