Color it Pink
An Ivor Prodution
The picture is of your 14 year old son Alex and his 13 year old brother Ric. Besides being brothers the pair are extremely close and due to the very short gap between their birth actually are in the same class/grade at school. They share the same interests and enthusiasms and it is very rare for just one of them to be in trouble - not that they get in trouble that much, but they do have a liking for pranks which in the pat have led to sore butts. That though appears to be a price they are willing to pay.
Currently you and the boys are on holiday a fairly luxurious tropical hotel which you have all been enjoying. It is very early morning when you decide to go for a dip in the hotel pool and are surprised to see the boys there as early rising is not one of their features. You suggest the boys join you, but they decline so you dive in on your own.
As you start swimming you notice the water changing color and start to turn purple. Being a chemist you soon deduce that somehow the boys have managed to acquire some potassium permanganate crystals which they have put into the water.
You know the effect will be temporary and they will do no harm but you intend to turn a couple of butts pink when you get out and have dried off. However, before you can do that the hotel management contact you and make a complaint to you about the boys' behaviour as one of their staff saw them putting the crystals in the water. Will this affect how you punish them?
