My mom was the biggest joker I knew growing up. I guess, you could throw in prankster too. Which, is most likely why I was a class clown/smart ass in high school. :-p There are honestly to many stories to share in one post but, I will share the 2 that stick out the most. She was definitely not your average mom that’s for sure.
- Don’t play with knifes!!
April 1st 1991, (a.k.a April Fool’s DAY) i was 5 years old and my sister Jess, was only 4 yrs old. Well, we all know a pranksters favorite day is April Fools but, my sister and I were not actually old enough to know this or, remember it from the year before. So, my mom gets the bright idea that she is going to play a prank on us. She approaches my sister and I with a white ring box, crying.
Sobbing, she says, “Girl’s I cut my finger off!!!”
We of course freak out and ask what happened and look in the box. Where her “what seemed to be lifeless” finger laid on top off a few cotton balls and was covered in “what seemed to be” blood. We then start crying and tell her that she needs to go to the hospital so she can get it glued back on.
mom then starts laughing and says, “Girls, it’s just a joke!!! Look, I’m okay!!!”
When we look she is sliding the box up over her finger through the whole she had cut in the bottom. She then licks her finger still laughing like crazy and says, “It’s just ketchup!!!” She then says, “Now don’t play with knifes or this is what could happen!” I swear lol. Now when I tell people I can’t help but to laugh.
- Peanut Butter Fun!!!
Mom’s once a month trick, that I honestly never figured out until I actually got a mouth full. lol
For as far back as I can remember mom chased us around the house with peanut butter on her finger telling us that it was poop from wiping her butt. lol Don’t ask, I warned you that my mom is silly. We always got away or barely got away by her touching our shirt or something lol. Wasn’t a bad joke just grossed us out and would make us gag. lol
So, around the age of 9, mom quits letting us get away so easily. She was chasing me and I had almost made it away from the poo finger lol. When, all of a sudden, mom hooks me and her finger landed in my mouth!!!!
“AAAAAAHHHHHH”, I scream and then start gagging and throwing up. Which, lol I realized right then that what I had swallowed was peanut butter and it clicked lol. So, you mean this whole time she was chasing me with peanut butter!?! Yes, Yes she was!!! I was so grossed out but, started laughing because I really thought that she was mean enough to put poop in my mouth lol. No, she would never give us poo. She just wanted to see how far she could push it. lol
Those are just a few so, I hope you can imagine what else she might have done!!! 😛
