Have you ever stolen anything? Tell us about it.
I stole a caramel from a grocery store when I was less than 10 years old. I ate it later on in the day, and regretted it, because caramel is one of those things that make you want more and more, so I spent an afternoon miserably craving more. I never got in trouble for it, though I did tell my mother about it when I was in my mid-teens. I was one of those children who only got candy on Halloween (and not much, even then), so the force of want was strong with me. I definitely eat more sweets than I otherwise would have because I was denied back then. Incidentally, I think I stole the candy because my mother had told me a story about something similar and I wanted to see if what happened in the story would happen to me, but given how young I was at the time, my memory is pretty vague and that could be false. I don’t recall ever stealing anything else.
