Little Bill was on his way back from market with a box of melons which his father had asked him to pick up for him when suddenly, his cart hit a stone and the crate broke open. Melons flew everywhere but Bill was determined not to let his father down and made sure that he picked up every last melon that he could see. He feared that some were lost and that his father would be disappointed in him.
“Sorry father, the crate broke and the melons went everywhere” confessed Bill, “but I did manage to retrieve ten of them.”
“Good boy” chuckled his father, “I only bought a crate of seven!”
