Each year, Calvin and Wendell were the “butt of the joke” of the neighbors next door. “Surprise!” the neighbors yelled. The two didn’t ask for the pranks—the spring-loaded boxing glove in the mail box, the giant dragon balloon no one could figured how it got into the living room.
This year, Calvin decided to get back at them.
“It’s a bit much, don’t you think?” said Wendell.
“Have you ever pranked anyone?”
“Exactly. You don’t know what ‘too much’ is.”
The following day, two police officers arrived at their door.
“You’re lucky he survived the fall. …Who removes stairs?”
