I admit to nothing.

So, yesterday I posted that people could throw out topics to me and I'd see about writing something on said subject. For today's topic, we can blame thank Kelli who wanted to know what the best practical joke I ever played was.

First off, Kelli, I am shocked and appalled that you would think that I would ever stoop so low as to play a practical joke on someone. That being said, the following did or did not happen. I admit to nothing.

College... Living in the dorms... Ah, good times... Some of you may remember me telling you about going to Westmont, a small Christian college that was pretty conservative. So many chances to get myself into trouble there... Adding a bottle of dish soap to the school fountain, giftwrapping a douche and putting it in the mailbox of a male friend, laying seige to a guys dorm after everyone else had left for Thanksgiving break... Of course I had to do something special with the very large pair of tighty-whities that I might or might not have found in there. One of the best parts of that last one was that they never figured out that it was me who did it, but paybacks went to a couple of girls that I wasn't too fond of. Hey, the horns are only there to keep the halo up.

But after thinking about it for a while, I remembered something else that happened after college. Again, I admit to nothing. But if something did happen, it would have gone something like this... After leaving Westmont, I decided to take some classes at the local community college. And what kind of class would a good Christian girl take that she couldn't have taken at Westmont? Human Sexuality, of course! And what an interesting book for that class! There was this one chapter on sex-change operations, complete with detailed pictures of before and after a surgery. Wanting to share this information, I decided to copy the pictures and made up a letter to send to a friend that had gone to Westmont with me. I wrote up a letter as if it had come from a sex-change clinic and he had requested information on having an operation. Pictures, descriptions, the whole shebang. Oh, and then I faxed it to his work. Yes, this was at a time when workplaces only had one fax machine that everyone shared. Good times... Can you believe that he still talks to me?

Maybe later I'll tell you about a prank that didn't happen, but really needed to. Hmmm... I wonder if it's too late to go back to my old college and pull it off...

Your life is funny. You know it is. So tell us about it! Life is Funny Carnival. Just do it.

Do all you gals always conform to the rules, like "works for me Wednesdays" or whatever?

Seems a bit restrictive. But then again, I've never been good with following directions.

Wendy said...

"So" - A needle pulling thread?

"All you gals" - Are you referring to me and my many personalities?

"Rules" - We don't need no stinkin' rules!

"Works for me Wednesdays" - Okay, ya got me there. I have no clue what that is.

"Seems a bit restrictive" - Not when compared to a straight jacket. Or underwear that ride up.

"never been good with following directions" - Are you directionally impaired, too?

Wendy ;o)

katdish said...

Okay - perhaps I should clarify. You are one of many female bloggers (Candy and Steph also) that have similar posts on similar days. And I think it's "Wordless Wednesdays", come to think of it. So, is this some type of bloggity club?

That's what I was talking about.

Kelli said...

So, I'm not saying that you are exactly the type of person that would pull these jokes, but if you are...I think they're pretty funny :)!

Nice job Wendy - you never disappoint!

You went to Westmont? I visited there for spring break one year while still in high school.

I ended up at Point Loma in San Diego. Amazing what types of fun you come up with when you can't dance, drink, smoke, or hang out with people who do. ;)

Okay, I'll join the carnival! I see rules as suggestions. Hope that's okay?...

It's amazing what a mom finds out years after the fact! Your paybacks are coming!

I like your playlist. Do you pay a fee or anything? I don't want to look into on my own too much until I am sure I can trust them. If it is all free or a one time only fee, I would love one of those pop out players and play lists, but if I have to hand my credit card number over for some monthly fee....well, not a good investment for me right now.

Why does "Walking On Sunshine" always make me feel like I am? (Unless a real tragedy has happened, of course. I am not that weird...)

Helen said...

Thanks. I have one of my own on my blog now. I appreciate you giving me the info.
