Trick is a great Slice of Life for October. Our family is full of tricksters! Mostly, we like to surprise people with people. One time, I went to Katie's house and she sent me to her closet to check something out. I open the door and out pops John!! Did I ever scream?? You bet!! It scared the heebeegeebee's out of me. I think my screaming scared him a little too! I was very happy to see him though!!
Last summer, Evan and I pulled off a fun trick on Mike. Our daughter-in-law Sariah and grandchildren were in town visiting. She was spending the day at the Lake with her mom and sister's. Her sister had a little doggy that needed a dog sitter so we agree to let the pooch spend the afternoon in our backyard. When I realized the dog would be there when Mike got home, Evan and I concocted a story that someone in his program had a dog they couldn't keep anymore. So, I told Evan we could adopt it. Now, that is totally unlike me to make a decision like that without Mike's approval. But, we put on such a sob story, poor dog had no where else to go, and I couldn't get a hold of Mike at work, so I agreed. At first Mike was very surprised and looked majorly annoyed. He really likes dogs though and is great with them. So he went out to play with our newly adopted pet. I think he was actually enjoying the idea. At dinner we started talking about what we would need to get for the dog. I mentioned that I would go to the store after dinner to get some dog food. Evan pops in and says, "Would Sariah's sister like it if we bought dog food for her dog??". EVAN!!! OOPS!! I think you just gave away our trick. Mike got a good laugh out of that, we had him totally convinced. However we were all happy to give the dog back because she a was yapping, little jumper!!
