A Holy Bucket

I want you to imagine with me for a moment that I have a bucket with four holes in the bottom of it.  Fill it with water and what happens.  Of course, all the water will run out of the bucket (so you’ll need to have another container to catch the water).  After the water runs out, try it again.  They try it a third time.  What happens each time?  The water runs out, right?  So why fill the bucket that won’t hold water?

One Halloween night, a neighborhood practical joker decided to frighten the young trick-or-treaters who rang his doorbell.  He put on a floor-length black cape, a black hat fitted with devil’s horns, and a hideous mask that seemed to combine the most gruesome features of Dracula, Frankenstein, and the Wolf Man.  Then he waited.

 

Finally, his doorbell rang.  He turned off all the lights and shining a flashlight on his mask, he opened the door and pierced the night air with an eerie scream
