Did you ever pull any Halloween pranks as a kid (or adult for that matter)? I have to admit I did. I was not one for soaping windows or throwing eggs. First of all, had I been caught, my parents would have killed me. And I knew that eventually I would have to come home and face them! No, I was never destructive. Eggs on a car could peel the paint. And besides, there's a good chance that would have made me a little sticky. And I can't handle being sticky! Soaping windows, while that's probably not destructive, I never saw the fun in that.
A new blogging friend, Jason at Redneck Nerd Boy posted yesterday about Halloween hijinx. And it got me thinking. My girlfriend and I would sneak up into the corn fields by our house and pull corn in the summer. We would dry it out all summer long and then around Halloween we would go cornin'. Dried corn doesn't really do any damage to it's intended target. But it sounded really cool when it hit the house. Ping, ping, ping, ping, ping! Hehehehe - we made a loud noise!
But my most favorite prank was not only not destructive, it could actually benefit the homeowner in the long run. We would buy plastic forks in bulk quantity. Then sneak into yards and "fork" em. HA! I still get a kick out of that one. Imagine waking up and looking out your window only to see a million forks sticking up out of your yard. Giggle giggle. Now before anyone gets their bikinis in a bunge, think about all the money those homeowners saved at their next picnic. Granted it was probably a slight pain in the dupa picking up all of those forks. But then all they had to do was wash them and voila - flatware for your picnic! It was our little take on "sticking it to the man." And what better way to say that than Fork You. HA HA HA!! I gotta say, I am really chuckling this morning as I type this. Good clean fun. Nobody got hurt and no property was damaged. But we thought we were SO cool.
So, does anyone have a prank they used to pull? Any stories of Halloween hijinx you'd like to share? No one's gonna tell on you. We won't call the police and we won't tell your kids....
On another note, thank you EVERYONE for your sweet comments on my anniversary. That meant so much to me and it truly touched my heart. As for our anniversary celebration - it went kabunk. Kenny was supposed to work until 7. He came home at 4:30 with a fever, stuffy head and nose. I on the other hand was suffering from intense stomach pain. I still made dinner and a cake though. We had steak parmesan and thin spaghetti. And I made a white cake with white icing and coconut in the shape of a heart (oh for pete's sake, I know!) His fever didn't alter his appetite. Well maybe a little. He only had one helping of each. Austin, on the other hand had two huge steaks and 2 mounds of spaghetti. He's 5'4 and he's only a hundred pounds!! So needless to say, we ate dinner. Sat on the couch each feeling sorry for the other and went to bed by 8:45. WOO HOO!! Whatever... Oh well, we still have this weekend, wink!
One more thing: Be sure and drop over at Cara's Cravings today to wish her good luck - she's getting married on Saturday!!
