Across the walkway, Sal heard girls giggling as Geno checked the safety chains on the swing ride. Girls who came back time and time again to see Geno.

When I become a ride operator, Sal promised, I’ll be more popular than Geno!
Sal decided to share his misery. “Hey, kid!” Sal yelled. “Want some free cotton candy?”
