I had the sweet job
of babysitting for CJK the last night
He slept over while Mom & Dad
went out of town.
Nope-doesn't bother him at all to sleep in a
"girly bed". lol
The next morning was
APRIL 1st-APRIL FOOL'S DAY
Nana- Come on CJK. Let's play a trick on Papa.
CJK: OK- What kind of trick?
Nana: Come on- I'll show you.
We go downstairs to the little kitchenette
where Papa prepares his special foods
that he has eaten since he got cancer.
CJK: What are we gonna do?
Nana: We are going to tape down the SPRAYER on the kitchen faucet.That way when Papa turns the faucet on he will get sprayed.
(someone else's image using rubber bands)
I proceeded to show him how that worked
by turning just a tiny bit of water on.
Even that little bit of water soaked the floor.
He was overjoyed.
This was going to be the
BESTEST APRIL FOOL'S JOKE EVER!
Nana: CJK-Don't say a word to Papa. It's a secret. OK?
CJK: I know, Nana!!! I won't tell him cuz it's a secret, right?
We head back upstairs where
Papa is watching the news.
I sit down.
CJK stands DIRECTLY in front of Papa,
grinning like a Irish elf.
Then opens his mouth and laughs.
Papa: What are you laughing about?
(10 second pause- as CJK continues to stare and grin.)
Papa: What's so funny?
CJK: Nothing. Hey, Papa-why don't you go downstairs and get sprayed?!!!
Papa gives me the hairy eyeball.
Papa: Thank you, CJK!!!
I give CJK the "you little traitor" eyeball!
Should I tell you that even being
forewarned he got sprayed a bit
before it 'hit him'?
Well, at least I didn't have such a
big 'clean up' this year.
Here's the funny thing.
I have done this every year since we
have been married---like 40 years.
He NEVER remembers!
And- he always BRAGS that--
"She got me AGAIN"...
CJK is NOT invited back for
NEXT APRIL FOOL'S DAY.
He can play the trick at his own house!
I am off to the Va this morning for the 6am shift.
Love those guys.
Love y'all, too.
Have a GREAT Tuesday!
