Addie is so into “pranking” everyone. She doesn’t handle it so well when we prank her sometimes so we’ve been working on the “giving as well as receiving” aspect of pranking. If you’re brave enough to prank someone else, you’d better be brave enough to take it when you get pranked.
Let’s just say that her prank on Vince yesterday involved melted chocolate on a little piece of plastic wrap on his bathroom floor. I did warn him (but she didn’t know) because (1) Vince’s language can be quite colorful and (2) he can step right over a cement block and never see it so I didn’t want to be cleaning chocolate off the floor. I had to about tape Addie’s mouth shut because she was dying to ask him if he needed to go to the bathroom.
Yesterday, it was getting dusk and she was still in the sewing room with Boots. I opened the door and called her name a couple of times and she didn’t answer me. I knew she was in there so I thought . . prank time on Addie. I closed the door, walked out and hid behind my car, knowing that as soon as I walked away, she’d come running after me. When she walked out, I jumped out and scared her. She was about to be mad about it and I told her . . if you want to prank people, you have to be a good sport when you get pranked! She smiled but she’d still rather be on the giving rather than receiving end.
Last night Vince went to bed early. Addie and I were still up and she kept trying to think of a prank we could do today. I came up with the idea of short sheeting the bed so I washed our sheets and put them back on the bed . . but not the right way!
Now, I just have to hope he goes to bed early because I’d hate to be the one who goes to bed first and have to re-do it without him ever seeing our trick. Addie can hardly contain herself. I’m 100% sure, at about 7 p.m., she’s going to start asking him if he’s tired.
