Everyday is a holiday, whether or not anyone knows about it. Today is March 5. Happy National Cheese Doodle Day, everyone.

1. Mysterious Headache

As usual, after school let out Kyle and Orville Flynn met up near the front doors and began walking home together. (Their house was located nearby the school.) On the way, Orville noticed that his brother was frowning and rubbing his head a lot. He inquired about it.

"My head's been bothering me all day," Kyle grumbled. "It throbs every time my heart beats."

"What happened?"

"I don't know. I just woke up and it was like this. I guess maybe I fell off my bed when I was asleep or something."

Orville blinked. "Kyle, you sleep on the top bunk. Your bed is like five feet off the ground. How could you fall without waking one of us up?"

"Well, I don't know about you, but I guess I was really deeply asleep."

"People who are deeply asleep do not toss and turn in bed enough to fall off."

"But what else could've happened?"

"What makes you think you fell onto the floor, anyway? Did you wake up on the floor?"

"No, I woke up in my bed."

Orville abruptly halted. Seeing this, Kyle stopped too and met his brother's blank stare.

"So let me get this straight," Orville said. "You were moving around in bed so much that you rolled off the edge and fell five feet to the ground. Despite this, you were apparently deeply asleep enough that you did not notice crashing onto the floor. However, you were not too deeply asleep to stand up and climb the ladder back to your bed. Through all of this, you never once woke up, even though you hit your head so hard that it caused a lasting headache."

"Uh . . . yeah, I guess so."



"You're crazy."

"I already knew that."
