Ceiling's Greetings

"We'd spent three weeks in our new home. I was 6 at the time. My parents were having 30 or so people over for a Hannukah dinner and my mom noticed some water spots on the ceiling above the front entry foyer. She sent my dad up into the attic to see if there were any noticeable leaks. Apparently my dad didn't understand the concept of walking on the rafters and not the drywall. He took two steps into the attic and his leg came right through the ceiling. He was OK but nothing could be done about the giant hole in time for the party, so my mom did the next best thing. She took one of my dad's shoes and traced around it on the ceiling with the words 'Herbie was here.'"
