My husband is obsessed with pranks. It’s almost like his mind is still in joke mode. He’s still planning the next prank. If he ever seems lost in thought, it is because he is quite simply ready for a future prank. It never ends. You have to be careful around him. He will get you.
When we first started dating he would always try to hide in places I didn’t expect and then he would jump and scare me to death. He did it so much, he got to the point where I always expected him to play pranks on every corner. I became numb.
I tried over and over again to try to scare him off, but it never worked. I realize now that I haven’t been patient enough. Waiting, no matter how long for just the right time, is the key to a good prank. After many attempts to prank him, resulting in a ton of epic failures, I finally got it right.
One day I came home before he did. I immediately saw this as an opportunity to try, once again, to scare him, as he has successfully joked me so many times. So. I emptied a large plastic bin in which we kept winter clothes and climbed inside. I adapt perfectly.
The tub was in the hallway leading to our room. I knew when he got home he would come into the bedroom to put his wallet and keys on the dresser and at that point, as he got out of our room, I would jump out of the tub.
It seemed to me that I had to wait forever for it to arrive. But I also knew the wait would be worth it.
When I heard him pull into the aisle I pulled the cover off the top of the tub to make it look like it was closed and waited. He did exactly what I thought he would do. He walked past me to the bedroom, put his wallet and keys on the dresser, then walked back down the hall.
It was my chance. While he was right next to the tub, he pushed the top cover aside and straightened up. He jumped so high, yelled curses and fell to the ground screaming. IT WAS EPIC! We pretty much decided to call it a draw after that and focus on scaring others.
One of his best pranks was with a plastic snake. Whenever his friend tried to get closer to him to see better, he would pull him away. And, every time he moved it, his friend jumped and screamed.
When I saw this prank on Facebook, it reminded me of something my husband would do. But instead of me, probably his poor trusting mom.
This guy pranked his wife with a Christmas garden ornament and took a video. I think he’ll be in the doghouse for a long time and probably be on Santa’s Villain List.
