Sip On This!

So a while back I posted 4 facts about things I have learned from the past, of which included:

1. When you're at dinner with Mike, always check your straw before taking a drink!

Many of you were thinking, what the hell is she talking about? Well, this is what the hell I was talking about:

The ketchup wasn't half as bad as when I got a straw full of salt in my milk!!! I spit it out all over my pancakes, luckily I was done eating and luckily Mike didn't have his flip video cam on hand!


And there's more where that came from, You remember the little Maze joke don't you?


Oh, and to make matters worse, my dad has decided to get in on the action. We go to lunch almost every Friday and a few weeks ago we were at Faustina's where I was telling him all about Mike's straw jokes. He was pretty impressed.

As he should be.

During lunch I got up to go to the bathroom and before I left I said to my dad: "Leave my straw alone!"

Somehow in the time it took me to come back from the bathroom I had totally forgotten what I had said to him just a few minutes earlier. And of course, like an idiot, I grab my straw to take a sip of my drink.

Yeah, he had spread honey all over my straw. The straw that I knew he was going to do something to just a few minutes earlier. The straw that I grabbed anyway without thinking.

I don't know what my dad thought was funnier, me with sticky hands and face or the fact that the honey was so obviously gobbed on the straw that he thought I would notice it for sure.

Come on dad, you know me better than that.

Now, how to get these practical jokers back???

My dad is a total practical joker. I've never been able to get him with practical pranks, but one time I had the neighbor call him and pretend to be someone from the high school. She told him that I hadn't been to school in a month. HE FLIPPED.. Really funny. Another time I told him that my brother got called to go on his mission to Boise Idaho (he went to italy). He was not happy. :)

Closer to Lucy said... glad I'm not the only one who get's jacked like that. Though I'm even more glad that it's you on film and not me!

Your giggle is just as cute as the rest of you!! *smile*

I dump cold water on Thomas when he's in the shower. He's such a drama queen and his over-the-top reaction (read here cusswords!!), is just to tempting to resist, lol!

Stesha said...

Ha! Mike got ya! "Maybe it's the straw that makes it taste funny." Hook, link, and sink Pooba!

Hugs and Mocha,

Jason, as himself said...

1. You are so cute.

2. I love practical jokes like these. I like to put all the sweetners, salts, peppers, and creamers from the table in my female friends' purses while they're in the bathroom.

3. Those rings!

I love that you're just as gullible as my sister is... I'll have to think of some pranks we pulled on her so you can get them back good! ;)

Kasey said...

You'll have to get them back. Vaseline under the car door handle maybe.

Here's one my husband does to people. If you have restaurants with peanuts on the table (as are popular here in TN), take part of the peanut and shove it into his straw. If you do it right, when he comes back, he'll suck and suck on that straw and nothing will come out. The same result can probably be obtained by cutting a large slit in the straw with a pocket knife.

Hmmmm, what to do? I left a nice cold, icey Pepsi in the fridge one day while I went to run an errand.

My brother came over, drank 3/4 of it then filled it up w/ whiskey and worcestershire sauce. You know what happened. It tasted horrific.
I had a cold so I didn't even smell the alcohol. That Shmuck.
(papa likes to marinate our steaks in whiskey before they hit the bbq)

You could do something like that.

I freaked papa out years ago. One night I slipped into our bedroom and got naked. No, I stood in the dark w/ my hand on the light switch. He had no idea I was there and when he went to flip on the light and felt someone's hand there he jumped about 5 feet. Good luck at getting him back.

Maybe you could invite Mike over, make the salsa and when it's time to flame it have him stand real close. LOL That's a little too dangerous, you would start him on fire and, you and, the house. It could be messy.
