As much as I love Pin-it Saturday, I have found myself getting a little bored with it. So, since I bought this nifty new book I thought I would share a writing prompt every other week. It’s not like the writing prompts that I use for my short stories. It’s more of a personal kind of writing prompt, the kind that you would be given in school.
They are all fun and encourage a little deeper thinking. Unlike my writing prompts that I use for short stories, my mind isn’t instantly filled with what I could write. I may have a hard time writing down things about myself. lol
Moving on. I choose one for today that I though would be a little funny.
“What is the funniest prank you have ever played on someone? If you haven’t, then design a prank that would make you laugh non-stop.”
Okay, this is kind of mean, but I still get into fits of laughter when I think about it. When I was younger, about 14 I think, I asked my brother to help me with something. I had a sleeping bag, and I needed to roll it up.
So, being the awesome, trusting, brother that he is, my brother came to help. I told him to stand on the end of the sleeping bag so I could roll it up tighter. I started rolling, the stopped and yanked the sleeping bag out from under him.
Now, you know that most sleeping bags are silky and very slippery. When I yanked the sleeping bag out from under him, it caused my brothers feet to fly up over his head and he landed on his butt.
I was laughing so hard and my mom, who tried so hard not to, was laughing too. My brother on the other hand, had this little crushed look in his eyes. I had betrayed his trust in me. But it was so worth the laugh.
Even to this day I can’t tell the story without laughing. I am so terribly sorry, little brother!
I’m not a prankster and I don’t like setting up pranks. This was probably the only good one I have ever done. The rest of my pranks are jumping out at people when they least expect it.
Let’s here your story!
