Of Pies and Pranks
As a newly-wed, were you the recipient of a wedding ‚Äėprank‚Äô (or two) ? Perhaps you were the perpetrator?
This cute story found it‚Äôs way to me and I thought it would be fun to share. It might stir up old memories. If it does, I hope you can remember the ‚Äėfun‚Äô and laugh about it all now as this person does!
“Anna made us a gooseberry pie the first year we were married, and if you have ever used gooseberries before, you know how much labor stemming and prepping them is. When it came out of the oven and I had the first bite. It was awful! ¬†It was salty and not sweet. We checked the sugar bowl she had gotten the sugar out of for the pie… it was SALT. When we had gotten married, someone — “PAUL”– had gotten into our house and tricked out our house. They took all the lights out of the fixtures, put potatoes under the couch to rot, put raw egg in the shampoo bottle, powder sugar on the sheets, pulled labels off all the cans. And the one that really pissed [ticked] me off ruined my pie by putting salt in the sugar bowl! ¬†Some of the things we found immediately. Other things like the rotted potatoes, and egg in the shampoo took time.
Oh well kids will be kids.
It has made me laugh and have something to “remind” my nephew about. My brother had the key to my house, and I think he was in on it too, especially since his wife chastised him for bringing it up, again. He at least harvested the berries and stemmed them to make the pie.”
