Talking about stuff you tried to pull over on your parents only to have it backfire and fail miserably on you.
I remember once when I was a kid and my parental units were still at work I was bouncing a basket ball on the kitchen floor. Something I KNOW not to do. Anyway I’m bouncing the damn ball around, I lose control of it, it bounces up on the counter and breaks my Moms favorite cookie jar.
Now, Mom loves this cookie jar because she hand made it herself.
The jar itself just so hapened to only break into three different peices. So what I was able to do is peice the jar back together just like new, the only problem was the “glue” so to speak that held this thing together was the lid when I put it back on the jar.
So the next day her timing couldn’t have been more perfect; I just so happened to be in the kitchen when she took the lid off the cookie jar. Needless to say when she took the thing off; the jar of course falls into a hundred peices (or so it seemed)
IMMEDIATELY she looks right over at me to which I’m doing my best Oscar wining performance complete with dumbfounded look on my face in all and as if that weren’t enough, I actually had the audacity to say “Whad’ ya do?..Mom?..”
Obviously my little scam didn’t go over so well…
Any others care to share theirs?
