*sigh*Somebody (ME) needed to lighten up. It was a joke and my hubby just wanted to play the day up. I knowthat in order to roll with the challenges life deals, we need to smile when things come up and learn the art of making each other laugh with everyday stuff… so here was my date to kinda focus on just THAT.
As you will see, this is overflowing with silliness!
The night before our date, I staged my first little “surprise” and switched the cereal inside the two boxes that I pretty much knew my hubby would choose from for breakfast in the morning.
Inside each box I also slipped a little note.
I just rolled the post it up like this and tied it with dental floss.
Sometimes simple is all ya need.
Sure enough, he started to pour himself a bowl of PB Crunch and ended up with Cocoa Pebbles and a note in his bowl. From downstairs I heard him say, “What the?”Hehehee
Later that afternoon I offered him some water… or was it?
Then I cut a looong black thread, stuck the majority of it in my pocket and let a little hang down from my black shirt (I thread it through a needle and out my shirt) hoping my Mr. would notice it and rip it off for me. Yeah, he totally did. After a good tug, he saw it coming from my pocket. It still got a good laugh! Probably mostly laughing at me because by now, it’s totally obvious how cheesy I am today!
This next gag I prepared beforehand with a couple magnets and a regular paper cup. The ol’ “forget-something-you-set-on-the-car” trick.
Here’s how it looked as we headed out for our date that evening:
Note to self – use stronger/bigger magnet(s)
At dinner we ordered dessert first. Why not? I think that is going to become a tradition… Needless to say there are tons of pranks you can pull at dinner – choose yer favorites!
Next stop: Improv Comedy show!
If you’ve never been, you gotta try it! SO FUN!
By the end of the show my cheeks were totally sore from smiling.
That’s a good sign on ANY date.
Last but not least, I had put some of that super strong double stick padding tape on the back of 3 quarters. While we were downtown waiting for the show to start, I knelt down to “tie my shoe” and stuck one to the sidewalk. Then I stepped on it as I stood up and walked away.
We stuck around to see people try to pick them up. (One little kid was sooo excited to find it!) It’s way funny to see them realize it’s stuck!
It’s all in good fun, right? This would be silly to stage in front of your
own friends if on a group date too because they kinda feel “on candid camera.”
And because with some effort, you can get the sticky side up,
all three of our victims were able to get the quarter for their participation.
So we totally had FUN and since then we’ve had a few more inside jokes that one of us will randomly bring up from the comedy show, making the memory a lasting one. Another good part of this date idea is you can do ANY PRANKS you want! There are a gazillion gag ideas online. Maybe you’re the type of person to paint “graffiti” on saran wrap and wrap it around the back of your car so from first look, your hubby panics that someone has painted on the car!
However you like to play it, if you’re up for this one…
