...to pull off a prank this good!
It started when my friends kids, started a "Googly Eye" war!
I think the photos will speak for themselves.
Straight off posts on Facebook.
Some crazy person took it and ran with it.
Just who could that be?
Blame the Dollar Store.
I found Googly Eyes and my mind started spinning with ideas.
Into the mail they went, with no return address.
It's so much fun when you can drive
kids adults crazy.
Crazy trying to figure out who was doing it, that is.
Using a different post office added to the mystery.
They blamed each other, their parents, their aunts...
They even got hand writing samples from everyone!
That's when I knew it was time to step it up.
Black Friday came and I stood in line, shopping for these!
(tee hee hee)
I enlisted some of my online buddies to help me out.
Oh, you know who you are...
Into the mail went lots and lots of envelopes full of googly eyes,
to mail back to them from different states.
The first ones back were from New York.
The blame game began!
This was my favorite, and not because I happened to be there when the mail arrived.
The PO changed up how they wanted to handle the mailing
and required a padded envelope.
My quilt club buddy took care of it for me,
so there are now 2 different hand-writings on the same package...
oh, and a tracking number that the others didn't have.
All that just added to the mystery.
Best yet, not knowing who was behind it, I was treated to the story
of what's been happening the entire time.
Yes, keeping a straight face was a tough one.
Their parents, sent this as a thank you!
(Oh, oh...now they know, you knew all along...)
A thanks for driving them crazy??? You know I'm always up for that challenge.
I can't thank you enough, for the gorgeous arrangement.
It reminds me of the "Christmas Village" set up at your house.
30 years of friendship...
Can you believe it?
We are very blessed, to have such great friends in our lives.
I called and confessed while they were sitting down to Christmas dinner, and I have to admit, it was one of the funniest phone calls I've had in a long time. I'm still laughing here!
What an "epic" success...
...being able to pull off the "perfect" prank.
No one really ever suspected lil ole me!
Let me adjust my halo here
or should I say...
This card arrived in my mail the other day and gave me a good laugh.
I might have been a little concerned, but then, it came from one of my accomplices.
Who shall remain nameless to protect the innocent!
Some days, its just good to have some old fashioned "FUN".
A "BIG" thanks to the "Village" who helped me out!
...till next time
Keep on Stitchin'
