Surprise!

Even though he knew no one would be in the apartment when he got home, he still went into each room, turned on the light and stared, hoping maybe, somehow, all his friends and family were hiding in closets or behind the couches and plants and were just waiting, holding in their laughter, each of them thinking about how they couldn’t wait to see his face when they jumped out.

But each room was empty, no matter how many times he turned around and then looked back over his shoulder.

He stuck a frozen dinner in the microwave and waited.
