How My Kid Scared Me To Death With a Morphsuit..And How I Got Him Back
To say that my life has been adventure the last few years is an understatement. I met a man who had a little boy. Well that little boy is not so ‘little’ anymore. He’s 13, almost 14, and he’s also gotten to the age that he likes to pull pranks on me just to hear me scream. That is what happened a couple of weeks ago.
The other night Jace was at a basketball game, or so I thought. I was coming home from work late and had picked up a couple of pizzas for dinner. I walked into the house and my honey, Martin, was sitting at the computer. He told me Jace should be home from the game soon, but go ahead and eat if I wanted too. I grabbed a plate and a couple pieces of pizza, we talked for about 10 minutes before I finally went to the living room with my dinner.
All the lights were off, no TV going, not a big deal Martin just hadn’t made it in there yet. I went and got in my recliner, turned on my lamp, sat my self down and took a bite of pizza. The ceiling fan was on so I decided to get up to turn it off….that’s when I noticed Jace sitting on the couch wearing a purple ‘morphsuit‘. I tried to scream but remember I had just taken a bite of pizza! Scared the you know what out of me.
Martin and Jace both of course are rolling on the floor laughing at me. Apparently Jace had worn this suit, borrowed from a friend, at the game and ran around getting school spirit up.
Now, I am older and wiser! Martin is a hunter and had just bought a new game call that just happens to be remote controlled. So while Jace is taking a shower, we place said game call in the closet set on a wounded rabbit. We wait for him to doze off that night and then sneak down the hall and turn it on. We are both laughing so hard we are crying. Yet Jace doesn’t come running down the hall, there is no scream, no freak out, in fact there is NO reaction at all. Martin goes and opens his bedroom door and Jace is just standing there looking confused. He said he thought it was the TV. (I’m laughing just writing this) The look on his face was priceless. Unfortunately I don’t have a pic of that.
So anyway, I just wanted to share that funny little evening with you and to remind everyone that if you decide to scare me or prank me…..I will get you back!!!
