The prompt for today asks, "What is the best prank you have ever played?"
The best prank I ever played was probably when I was in college. It involved hoodies, white masks, three girls and an almost spilled cup of coffee :)
I think we must have been studing that night when we got the idea. It was late, we were tired and getting slap happy. One of our friends was a percussionist who just did his senior recital and I was in a choreographed drum peice that resembled a dream sequence. For that sequence, we all had these creepy white masks. Hmmmm....what should we do with them?
We went to a private college and all the dorms were locked at midnight. If you were off campus, or even just needed to go to your car, you had to go to the security building and have the guard unlock the dorm building for you. Our percussionist friend was working that night in the security building and we decided to sneak over and see if we could make his shift a little more interesting.
The secrity building has shrubs in the front and a flag pole that is lit from ground lights. The three of us, masks on, hoodies pulled up tight around our faces crept behind the shrubs and peeked in the large window. Our friend was at a table filling a cup of coffee.
We posed in a very "scary movie" kind of way and waited for him to turn back around and face the window.
I sure wish we had a video of the next part! He turned around and jumped and almost completely dropped his coffee and grabbed his chest with his other hand! We were laughing so hard that we could hardly make ourselves walk into the builing and apologize for scaring him so badly.
I have to say, it was hilarious. I probably would have reacted the same way if I had saw the three of us backlit in the bushes with those masks on.
I can't even think about that story with out almost laughing out loud!
