So far my Freshman year has been a lot of fun. I am glad that most of our group of friends have stayed close. Out of everyone in our group, SueAnn said that Celise, Julie B, Julie M and I are the most daring and weird. I guess she is right. After all, we are the ones pulling all of the pranks. But it's not really our fault. We are not the ones who scheduled us all to have biology together right before lunch period.

So far this year we have snuck a raw turkey neck in the boys locker room and threw it into the showers. Another time we left one sitting on a chair in the cafeteria. Also, Julie M & Celise brought some runny fudge and dumped it in the toilets. Another time, Celise drained the yellow broth from her soup and poured it into a disposable plastic cup then we placed it on the counter in the bathroom to make it look like a urine specimen.

One time when chicken nuggets were served at lunch we left dog biscuits on people's trays when they weren't looking. They looked just like the chicken nuggets too. Another week we stood outside the boys restroom during the lunch hour and applauded for them when they walked out. Some of them even bowed, though they weren't sure why.

Yesterday, I took a bunch of leftovers from the fridge and mixed them in a bowl with some added mayonnaise, food coloring, and Aloe Lotion and took it to school in an empty cool whip container. Taped to the lid we put a sign that said, "Do Not Open". When no one else was in the bathroom I sneaked in and placed the closed container in the sink.

Then, two-by-two, in shifts, we would hang out in the bathroom and watch what happened. It was pretty funny. A group of senior girls walked in and were arguing over who should open it. Finally someone opened it and almost all of them felt like puking! They ran out screaming.

I can't wait to see what we come up with next.

We were bored Freshman... what can I say. There WERE other pranks too, and many of them DID involve remains following the dissecting labs in Biology class... ewwww.... What Were We Thinking??? I have always been of the opinion that pranks are fun as long as no one gets hurt, no one is humiliated and property is not damaged/vandalized.

What about you? Did you ever play dorky pranks on anyone in school?

I did a lot of things in school! I've always ran, but I used to do hurdles too. We had some great times! Some that I am proud of, others, well, just make me cringe now when I look back! Did I really DO THAT????
Have a great day!

Of course I pulled pranks, we're sisters aren't we? I didn't really pull pranks at school, it was after-school hours that the magic happened under the cloak of night.

I remember spooning, ballooning, gumming, t-p-ing and mirroring.

Ruthykins said...

Ah,I remember taking the TP out of the stalls in the boys room. We would stand outside of the "closed" study hall(those students who had a C or lower GPA) and throw the rolls at the back of peoples heads, who looked like they were sleeping. It was so funny to see the study hall gestapo (or teacher) fly out of the room. We would race to our "open" study hall spots, sit and say... as the teacher approached, "who was that, and why were they running so fast?" The teacher would run,every time, down the hall we pointed to. OMGosh we would laugh so hard. We must have done that prank at least 20 times in the 3 years we had open study hall. btw I think you applauded at the bathroom door more than your freshman year...I think I was applauded at least once! It made me check my fly...

Emma, you are so funny! I did a LOT of TPing when I was younger, that is about it. Oh, and door-bell ditching. Pretty boring...

Megan said...

LMAO!! Hilarious!! Love that you guys applauded the guys as they came out of the bathroom. Hahaha!!

I never was one to pull pranks. TP, sure, but no actual pranks.

Nothing too crazy for me. I was too busy rebelling against the parents. I like how even when you were that young you used words like "specimen" instead of sample. Your love of words already shining through...
