The Abridged Version

Once upon a time, not really that long ago in a land very close to us, there lived four people who, by fate of employment, were assigned to work together as a team. The team members were (give team members their own identity). They worked together as a team of horticulturists at the Ever Green Turf Company. Their project was to develop a hybrid Kentucky bluegrass for residential lawn application. The top-secret project was to revolutionize the lawn industry. They developed a perfect, deep-green bluegrass that grew to an exact height of three inches and stayed at its mature height of three inches. This meant it never needed to be mowed, required very little water, needed no fertilizer and resisted fungus, weeds, bacteria and insects. In short, it was a perfect maintenance-free lawn product. Once planted and grown to its mature height, which took about 18 days, the grass required absolutely no care, maintenance or attention. The test plots were fabulous. The oldest plot was thirty-seven months old with a new plot planted every month.

On the third Friday of each month, the bluegrass project team conducted an inspection of each of the thirty-seven test plots. The team met on Friday, June 13th at 10:05 a.m. to begin their monthly inspection. As the team walked across Plot #36, they stopped dead in their tracks. (Follow the Story Board)
