I have a mischievous side. I'm usually the silent one in the group. (That is until you get to know me.) I've heard that it is the silent ones that you should usually beware of. So they say. There must be an inkling of truth to the saying. I once bit my baby brother's toe just to see what he would do. My sister got spanked. While I'm confessing, let me tell you about the time we treed our neighbors yard. Yep - treed it.
When I lived in Minnesota, you could dispose of your Christmas tree the week after Christmas by leaving it next to your garbage for the Waste Management companies to pick up. Naturally, this provided a great opportunity for a car full of teenage girls to conveniently load up Christmas trees in the trunk and top of their car in order to "plant" them in someones yard. By December in MN the amount of snow in yards allowed our little tree collection of 20 some trees to be lined up in perfect rows. Some even had their handmade ornaments and popcorn garland still nestled in the pine branches. Our prank wasn't complete until the trees were covered in toilet paper garland. After the once treeless yard was decorated with Christmas trees and white flowing paper, we watched from across the street as the homeowners arrived back home from their hockey game. Of course, we had to see the reaction to our lovely display...
The wife, "Look honey - someone t-pd our yard."
The husband, "Where the HELL did all of those trees come from!"
(It is a good thing we didn't freeze the trees in front of the garage as some suggested.)
The Hunter's Wife aka Jody recently revealed that she is now packing heat. Her weapon of choice: deer slingy balls. After seeing this nifty sling shot, I was reminded of the time that my dad brought home surgical tubing to make homemade water balloon sling shots. Man did that thing work good! Let me just say... the boats cruising by on the Mississippi River never had a chance. You drive, float, canoe, jet ski behind our house and there is a chance of a water balloon launching in your general direction from our backyard. I would love to have that sling shot again. I'm dying to see what it would be like to launch a water balloon from the top of a canyon or mountain hillside. It is the evil, mischievous side of me. I can't help it.
