I know, I know, only 40 minutes left until it's not Friday anymore. Over at Kailani's (An Island Life), she's doing a fun little Friday meme. I ask you a question, you answer. Then you can link up to her and ask your own darn question!

So I'm reading my BFF GiGi's blog tonight, and not gonna mince words here--she's capable of eating some disgusting 'food' or whatever. Like Spam fries, black-eyed peas with raw onion, and I think there were some live animals in there, not sure. And that got me to thinking about GiGi--and how she wants to prank some folks while she's up, throw some hot coals at their house. I think that's a fine idea. We might. (PS Gi, you DID see where I won the prize over at Kailani's, no? I KNOW! I couldn't believe it either...that almost always....I mean nevah happens!)
That girl got me to thinking about pranks, silliness, all the things we did in high school. Small town high school is probably better known for pranks, there isn't much else left to do on a Saturday night (Friday nights being typical football or basketball nights).
At Christmas time, we drove through town lifting holiday decorations,you know, wreathes, little decorative trees, those plastic candy canes, a flamingo or two, and of course always a Frosty and a Rudolph. Giggling beyond control, we'd sneak upon the target, snatch and run like heck through the snow (back when snow was snow and it was up to our knees) until we got to the getaway. One of us would be waiting, the trunk up. We tossed our score into the trunk, pile into the car (literally--back then seat belts weren't the 'thing' either) and took off, tire chains clanking along to the music! (Do you just see how innocent I can look over there? Because I am capbale of the look.)
At the end of the night-- say around 11:30, we knew we needed to get rid of 'evidence', so we simply unloaded the pile onto the side of a street and drove back home. Laughing all the way.....
Given, it might have been mean and stuff. But I contend a little movie theater or a stinking Mickey D's and we would've been better behaved. Fatter, but still...nicer.
I've got a million and one stories just like this (some of them started with a bottle of Tickle Me Pink...if you're an 80s child, you know about Tickle Me Pink). What was your favorite childhood/teenager-hood prank?
PS--Did any of y'all check that You Tube Video of Cliff Richard? Because I don't think you did. Because you'd be all 'oh my goooooondess he's beautiful!'. And I didn't get even one of those! Losers.
