Jokers

In case you haven't figured it out, there's a lot of silliness that goes on at my place.  My kids (and husband) are a bunch of jokers.  Here's a story from about three years ago that happened on April Fools Day.

My kids had the brilliant idea to pull a prank on our neighbors.  "Do you have empty boxes and packaging tape?" my son asked.

"Why?" I asked, growing suspicious.

"You'll see."

My son and daughter wrapped four empty boxes with packaging tape and affixed a label with my neighbor's address on it. Then they marched over to my neighbor's house, dropped the "packages" in front of her door, rang the doorbell and took off.

I just shook my head.  I would've liked to have seen my neighbor's face after opening up that special delivery!

    1. Yes! I've known quite a few pranksters who have done the bag of poop thing.

  2. Your kids sure are pranksters. Like Alex said better than dumping a box of poop at your neighbour's doorstep.

  9. Never a dull moment in your life, Sherry. I used to love going to joke shops - haven't done it for some time. I might try giving hubby an empty box. I love it.

  10. I hope that neighbor had a sense of the sublime. My grandmother used to put a small gift within multiple boxes so you'd have no idea what it was. She had lots of grandkids and wanted us to use our imagination. A family that laughs a lot is a good thing.

  11. Tell them to put some rocks in the box next time to give it some weight. Not that I have partaken in this ritual before.

  12. Your neighbor probably knew who the pranksters were. David is correct. They need to add some weight to their boxes.

  16. What a terrific idea! We once gave our nephew a flash drive wrapped in progressively larger boxes, with the largest one being a TV box. We did put a few large rocks in the bottom just to complete the effect.

    Your kids sound like so much fun.
