A DMK Production
You and the family have had a hectic morning and are already running late for a BBQ at a friend's house. You need to take something to the BBQ and so you stop by the grocery on the way to pick up a prepared potato salad from the grocery's deli. Your two sons, nine year old Grant and eleven year old Cooper, want to go in to the store with you instead of waiting in the car with your spouse. You allow it but remind the boys that you are on a tight schedule and so they need to stay with you. As you are busy looking through the available salads, Grant and Cooper wander off.
You hear a commotion from the produce area and go to investigate. One of the large cardboard bins of watermelons has broken and there are watermelons rolling everywhere and several melons are cracked open. In the midst of the chaos are Grant and Cooper. Cooper sees you and says, "It was an accident, we were just looking at the watermelons." A store clerk advises you that they were doing more than looking. He says the boys were running around and then started slapping on the melons. He said the boys tried to climb the cardboard bin when it broke apart. You ask the boys if the clerk's version of the events is true and they admit that it "sort of is" but still maintain that it was all an accident. Grant adds that they wanted to pick out a watermelon to take to the BBQ and they saw a nice one in the center of the bin and could not reach it.
