Mischief by Derek Veillard

Montréal, Canada

It’s all fun till someone ends up in the fireplace.

One day when I was eleven and living in Montréal, Canada, my friends Daryll, Richard, and I were playing Super Smash Bros. Brawl with the Nintendo Wii in the basement of Richard’s house. It was the weekend and it was raining outside. When Richard’s mom went to work we started fighting—we were punching and kicking each other, but it was for fun. In the end, Daryll and I pushed Richard into the fireplace (it wasn’t open) and his head stayed stuck. We helped to get him out of there…and his parents never found out what happened.
