“He Took the Last One”

Taking the last one of anything held special significance.  An infraction among kids that deserved severe punishment.

“Mom, Billy took the last chocolate chip cookie.”

“Sherry ate the last of the ice cream and didn’t tell anybody.”

How could the last of something be more important than the first of something?  It was a mystery of kid logic.  Like riding shotgun in the family sedan.  Window seats were held in high esteem

This could explain why things were put away with micro crumbs left in the package.  Being found out was too high a price to pay.
