Mark was walking home one day when he bumped his head on a streetlight.
"I can't go a single day without bumping my head. It's no fun being this tall."
Mark kept walking. Suddenly, a tall man in front of him dropped his briefcase and two bottles of purple liquid tumbled out. Mark rushed over to help the man.

"They contain a special potion that can make anything smaller."
"I wouldn't mind being smaller."
"For a kind creature who's willing to help me in time of need, I can offer a special discount. One bottle for $500."
Mark decided to purchase a bottle. He gulped down the potion and began walking home. On the way, he looked at his reflection in a store window. He was the same size, but his trunk had shrunk! He ran home.
