Mom scored a good victory in our ongoing prank war!
I'm 17 and an only child. My parents divorced years ago. Dad's completely out of the picture. So, it's just me and mom and we have a really close relationship. I know a lot of girls my age don't really get along with their moms, but we do. I think part of it is that we have similar senses of humor. We both love a good practical joke! As a result, we've had a good-natured prank war going on for some time now. And, about a week ago, mom scored a good victory!
I was in the backyard. I used to run track in middle school and I was practicing wind sprints. I haven't ran competitively in forever, so I was curious about what my time would be. I used my wristwatch to time myself, btw. Anyway, I was resting between sprints when mom came up behind me. I didn't realize she was there until she put her arm around me. She said she'd been watching me run and challenged me to a race across the yard. Even though mom goes for a run every morning and I was kinda tired, I still felt like I could beat her, so I told her she was on. We took our mark and when she said go, we both took off running at full speed. I didn't get far before I found myself being jerked off my feet and onto my butt! Turns out she'd taken one end of a bungee cord and hooked it to the belt loop on the back of my pants! The other end was hooked to the chain-link fence that borders our yard.
I gotta give her credit, I never saw that one coming. You won this round, mom! Now I gotta figure out a way to get you back. :) Anyone got any good prank ideas that can compete with this?
