Revenge Is Beautiful

Once upon a time there was a family who liked to play games together.  One of the games they enjoyed was 'hide-and-seek' in the dark!  All of the lights are turned off in the house, one of The Native's is "it" and goes upstairs to count while the rest of us hide.  When the time is up, The Native comes downstairs and with only the red light on their headlamp, begins to try and find all of us.

This is a fun game and imaginations run wild with all of the places to hide.  One day, The Mum thought she would hide in between the clothes drying on the clothes rack.  On a normal day, after The Native's have been out playing in the snow, it looks like this!


She thought it would be so funny if she crawled up inside with all of the clothes covering and hid.  She looked at the tiny hole she'd have to climb through and thought, "no problem".

She started to wiggle and jiggle her way up into the clothes rack when she realized something.  She wasn't as small as she thought, or the space was a lot smaller than it should be, or she was a lot bigger than in her world full of denial.

As this realization struck, so did gravity and the world began to tip.  Sideways....... and over the whole contraption went, trapping the giggling Mum inside.

The Mum had to shout "times"!!!  "HELP"!!!

All of The Native's and The SM came running flipping on lights as they came tearing around the corner and busted up laughing when they saw the pile of disaster.

The Mum was laughing so hard she was crying and in between her laughter and hiccups she asked her children to please help her out.


What you see pictured here............ is their idea of  helping.  Poor helpless Mum who can't fight back with a camera in her face.

The Mum in this story may not be an evil step mother but you can bet she is hatching an evil plan.  An evil plan of revenge.  (Evil cackle).

Watch out Mr. B and The SM......... when you least expect it............  THIS MEANS WAR!

NOT!!!  The End!

  1. Aha!! Okay. I get it now. Need help?

    What a great game! We never thought of doing that. The clothes pins were about as crazy as we got. But you know what? Dick and Gaye - they used to take their kids and our kids and the ward kids to the library when it was closed, and they'd play these crazy games like that one in that huge building with all its shelves - the time my kids went, they thought it was THE FUNNEST THING EVER.

    I always want to invite all the kids to a field day at the pasture, after we've dragged the field and the grass is just growing and the horses are shut in the arena. But I never remember in time.

  2. Oh you know it! You may help with the revenge and it will be beeeuuuutifulll!

    A field day out at the pasture sounds like a lot of fun! This spring. We could do it this spring! We'll plan something and make it happen yes?!

    I can see Gaye and Dick doing that. Wow! The places you could hide in the library!! Imagine the trouble we could get into.

  3. I'm thinking "Grumpy Old Men" at this point when they would play those jokes on each other....the fish one would work well.....under the bed, in the pillow case...you know.

  4. I still am not sure how the heck you got in there. Babe, you were STUCK. Completely STUCK. If it weren't for our gracious assistance, you'd still be in that cage. You would have been sleeping, showering, dancing the Salsa, and driving to the grocery store still wearing that drying rack.

    And I have a really good idea for your Halloween costume this year...

  7. Yeah, I don't see how in the world you got in there...or out! Hide and seek in the dark would be MUCH more fun and in a library even moreso!

    1. Looking at the dryer rack, I'm not sure how I got in there or what possessed me to think that I could!

      I figure with how well I get lost in just one book..... can you imagine how well I could hide and get lost in a whole library! :D

  9. Here I am, unable to go to work cuz I'm sick as a dog...and laughing wildly. "That mom" was ever so right - it really was SO FUNNY!

    We play night hide-and-seek outside. Never tried it inside. Hmmm. I'd better hide all of clothes drying racks before we give it a whirl ;-)

    1. Oh man! I hate being sick! Get better soon. If laughter is the best medicine then I am glad I could give you a dose. Let's hope it works. :) If it does..... my entanglement was worth it just for you Wabi.

  12. Cameron would relate to this. When he smeared peanut butter all over his head and face, the first thing I did was get the camera. See, your kids are taking the advice: don't get mad, get the camera!
