Mad, mad, mad scientist:Beckdawrek (how I grossed out my family)

Before I went to the hospital for my right kidney Panchos eviction, I asked a butcher I know to procure me a veal or sheep kidney. I got a mayo jar and moonshine and red food coloring. I created a kidney specimen jar. It looked really good all red and purply and vein-y. Truly yucky. I hid it while I was in the hospital.
When I got home at the first opportunity I got the jar outta hiding.
We were having a family dinner. I put the jar on the island. The table was set and food was served and eaten. The children sit at the island. They noticed it first. They chattered away about it. I was dying trying not to laugh.
I succeeded it not giving myself away.

The lil'wrekker got up to get something when she heard what the kids were saying.
She SCREAMED, when she looked at it. That caused everyone to look. There were plenty of "oh, grosses"and one "Oh, my god!" from the DIL.
Next thing I knew all eyes were on me. Son-of-a-wrek asked was it really my kidney as he rolled the jar around in his hand.

DIL sez "They don't put organ specimens in mayo jars." She's a party pooper.

So they all know I pranked them. Son-of-a-wrek was the only one really impressed, I think. He had to know where I got the kidney.

I have to thank ~VOW, my sister separated at birth (), for giving me the idea.
It was a successful pranking.

The grandwreks love looking at it. My oldest granddaughter thinks I shoulda put glitter in the jar and it would be like a snow globe.
That kid cracks me up.

b. down here having fun with medical (?) waste.

Like Pancho, that was perfectly executed, Beck! I salute you.

I love the snow globe idea! Methinks that grandchild is a mini-Beck.

Oldest Grandwrek is a character. Her mother (DIL) occasionally laments my interaction with her. I walk a thin line.
Me and the girl have a special relationship. She gets me kinda like her Dad always did.

Rest assured, this story is now firmly ensconced in the Wrek family lore. The story will be told, over and over again! Your Grandwreks will have their great-grandchildren gathering around their knees, begging to be told the Kidney Story!

Your sense of humor is clearly intact. Good to see you in good (or is that bad, bad, bad) spirits.
