The Lost Quarter
Need: 5 or more scouts.
Scene: One person acts as a lamp post, shining a flashlight on
the ground. Another is groping around in the pool of light.
(He's Scout One).
A third person enters, sees Scout One, and asks: "What are you looking for?"
Scout One: "A quarter that I lost".
He joins # 1, and helps him search. A fourth and fifth enter and repeat
the above scene.
Finally one of them asks Scout One: "Where did you loose the quarter ?"
Scout One: (Pointing away) "Over there"
Other Scout: "Then why are you looking here ?"
Scout One: "Because the light is better over here!"
