Pay Back

I don't know why this brings so much joy to my heart, but for some reason it does...I love to hide behind doors or in closets and jump out and scare Garth. The reaction on his face is priceless. As soon as I scare him I crumble to the floor in laughter. Garth thinks it's kinda funny, but not really.
Well yesterday he got me back, big time. I had made the bed neatly, did the dishes and put away laundry to prepare for more packing. I had asked Garth to run to my car and grab more boxes while I ran to the bathroom. I came out of the bathroom and saw him under the covers. I came into our bedroom saying "Garth! What are you doing in bed -" When Garth jumped out of the closet and scared me! I screamed. He laughed. The look of amusement on his face because he had successfully gotten me back. He had put pillows under the covers to make it seem he was under there. Sneaky little bugger, no?
I learned my lesson. I didn't like being scared like that so I will not be jumping out at him anytime soon.

Oh my gosh I SERIOUSLY think we are long lost twins. Please email my husband and tell him you do this bc he thinks I am nuts. I am all the time hiding from him and trying to scare him. I don't always try to scare him like "BOO" but sometimes I like to scare him and make him think that I am lost (yes, I know, I am demented). Like last time we went to New York he was getting tickets in the subway station and I went and hid behind a phone booth. He freaked out and I thouhgt it was hysterical. Or sometimes when I know he is about to get home I hide in the bathtub. As I type this I realize there is something seriously wrong with me. He is going to get my back BAD one day!

Brown Eyed Girl said...

LOL!! I do this all the time to my husband and I love it! I hate being scared though, so maybe I should stop :)

SassyEngineer said...

Haha - you two are too funny! I guess with us the tables are turned a bit, and our thing is tickling. I hate being tickled, but I am extremely ticklish and hubby doesn't mind tickling whenever he gets the chance. He is rarely never ticklish, but when it happens I take full advantage - isn't that horrible?!

Mojito Maven said...

I do this ALL THE TIME to Mr. Mojito and he hates it!!!!! One time I scared him so bad he wouldn't talk to me for the rest of the evening oops!!! He has never gotten me back though...i'll have to look out for that!

Blablover5 said...

I like to poke mine. Not in a hard way but just enough to get him to giggle. He hates it though because he hates being tickled.

Sometimes he deserves it though, especially when he says a pun.
