If you know me well, you would know that I love a good prank. So it was no surprise that when my brother called me from the airport this evening to let me know he was in the city, I immediately went along with him in his devious plan to surprise our mom. Mom was at my house with Amie’s parents handing out candies while we took the boys trick or treating, with people in costume walking up to the house, it was the perfect condition for a good prank. We decided that he would pretend he was a robber disguised as a trick-or-treater. Unfortunately, and sadly, I was not at home when Sheldon dropped by but he gave me a play-by-play which was later confirmed by the victims of the prank.
Apparently, Sheldon walked in the door dressed in a balaclava and sunglasses. Amie’s mom, Rose, was at the door doing candy duty. He walked in, locked the door behind him and announced he was a robber and was robbing them. Rose, trying to maintain a cool composure, told him there were kids outside waiting for candies and he should open the door. Sheldon proceeded inside and grabbed hold of my mom’s arm asking for her money. She yelled for him to get out and commanded Gilles, Amie’s dad to get the gun. (there was no gun). Gilles himself hid in the kitchen and stayed out of sight.
It was a great prank but good thing he ended it when he did as Rose later stated that she was gearing up to kick him down the basement stairs.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN! HOPE YOURS WAS GREAT!
