Oh I know where she got it. I gotta share. I was sitting in the living room watching the tube, minding my own business. Suddenly I felt this mild pain on the skin fo my right chest, just under the right shoulder. I looked an there was a jack-o-lantern shaped holloween candle, about 2 inches in diameter, sitting on the couch. I knew instantly that it had been thrown at me. I looked up and saw my youngest child, at the time about 17 years of age, standing about twenty-five feet away with a mortified and suprized look on her face. He kneese were slightly bent and her hand covered her mouth. She was apparently worried about my reaction for it was obvious that she had thrown the candle. She exclaimed in a voice of complete innocence, and with a gasp of incredulity (is that a word?
), "I'm sooooo sorry. I din't think I'd actually hit you." And I couldn't help but burst out laughing as I tried to explain to her that what she had done could have been dangerous to me, or various breakables in the house. She continued to apologize. I knew she had told me the truth. It never occured to her that she would actually hit me with that pumpkin. How could I have been mad? I ask ya.
And that's just one very small incident in a lifetime of pranks and foolishness. But then again, I once startled her so bad she almost wet herself. I just meant to startle her a little. Really. So, what goes around comes around. I just hope her fiance is up to the challenge. But from all reports, he comes from a similar type of family.
Seeeeeeya, and thanks everyone, Goodweed of the North
