Not really the way you’re thinking, though. We’re watching one of the neighbors’ dogs while she’s out of town. It was pouring rain a couple days ago, and I was bundled up pretty tight as I took little Max out our front door.
Kick stood in the door as I trudged outside, at the same time one of our neighbors drove by in his truck. He slowed waaaay down and waved.
Kick waved back, but I kept moving into the trees. (We don’t trust Max off-leash.)
I didn’t think anything of it until Kick came home the next day, grinning. One of his buddies had asked him if I was out of town. Word had spread that someone saw the neighbor lady leaving our house with her dog.
Oh for heaven’s sake!
Worse, Kick had replied. “Yep. She’s been gone a few days. Comin’ back on Sunday.”
I called him a couple names and demanded that he talk to his friend and clear this all up. But, he had other plans.
He thought it would be funny if I texted my girlfriends and told them I was coming back early from my ‘trip’ to surprise Kick. It’d either have Kick’s buddies warning him, or the neighbors setting up their video cameras to capture the moment of surprise.
“No. We will not be whipping the neighbors into a frenzy.” I set out to walk Max and wave to neighbors as they drove by, and made a point of talking to friends, telling them that I was home, but the neighbor lady was not.
Kick was disappointed. He likes to stir things up a bit. But we spent a fun hour plotting out a book about it. The fact that it ended up a ménage has gotten Kick back into a really good mood! *groans*
We’ve all played tricks on our family and friends, but have you ever played a practical joke on your neighbors? Have they ever played one on you?
May all your naughty fantasies come true!
