My family and I have just moved house! Lucky us!
So what did my family do? We held a housewarming party, and rung everyone in the neighbourhood up to invite them.
So, anyway, people were coming in while we were in the middle of conversations, so we decided to leave the front door open.
Then along came an old man (who I later found out lived next door), tapping his walking stick everywhere and causing a big fuss. That wasn't the worst of it! He brought in a lot of sticks from outside into our living room, and knocked everything around that we'd unpacked. After a while, a little kid said, "Grandpa, I think it's time to go home."
But it was already too late – have a look at the trail of destruction he'd unleashed! Look at the marbles that had gone everywhere! The blocks, the balls, my Puzzling notes! An abacus, a calculator, the matchstick puzzle I was working on! You get the point! Previously, everything was in a neat pile! I'm surprised he didn't knock the whole bookshelf down!
Now some stuff's gone missing, though surprisingly some things that we thought were missing have been found. Still, I've got a good mind to give this grandfather a stern talking to. But before I do, I'd like to ask for a second opinion, in case there's something I've missed. Is there a reason for me to keep my temper?
Oh, and here's a picture of the damage, so you can make an unbiased decision:

There's also a smidgen of reverse-puzzling involved.
