On Bringing Back the Prank

So what does Mr. Wired Momma have in common with this screaming, scared goat? (Trust me, watch this video)

More than I ever knew, apparently, except it took me 15 years to find out. And it happened on a whim. Let me start at the beginning.

Last night, he was stuck in horrible traffic, so we ate without him. As me and the girls were finishing dinner, a stroke of genius hit me, and I suggested we turn off some lights, hide and try to scare him.

There isn’t a 4 or 7 year old on the face of the earth who will EVER turn down an opportunity to hide. As the idea finished crossing my lips, we heard his keys in the door, so we scrambled to find lame hiding spots and turn off a light or two.

I could tell he was confused when he came in because, well, whose house is quiet at 7pm? Certainly not mine. So there he was saying “hello? Hello?!?” as he walked through the house.

I couldn’t believe none of us had yet erupted in giggles and then, as he started to enter the kitchen, we jumped out and said “BOO”


And jumped back.


I almost peed myself from laughing so hard. I am still laughing now.

This was him:


Nothing quite brightens your day more than scaring the crap out of your husband, I’ll be honest. And I had absolutely no idea. This man never flinches or wavers or gets scared, trust me, I’ve tried, over the last 15 years.  Meanwhile, I am this chick:

I suggest you, too, bring back the prank in your house. Oh, and also, I might start crank calling people now. Because I am reliving my youth and pranks are super fun. Happy weekend, everyone.
