speaking of creepy

I was just reminded of an amusing story that I should totally not share. But I will.

I used to think it was funny to listen for the door in our apartment hallway to know when Nick was coming home from work. Then, when I would hear keys jingling, I would stealthily unlock our front door, jump out, and scare the crap out of him (would you believe he screams like a girl?).

So one day it was about time he should be coming home. I hear the hallway door. I creep over. Jingling keys. I quietly open our door then leap into the hallway and yell BOO! as loud as I can.

It was our neighbor across the hall coming home with her boyfriend. They just stand there silently staring at me. She looks as though she isn't sure if she should karate chop me or give me meds. I purse my lips, slowly back into my apartment, and shut the door.


The End.

That sounds just like something I'd do. In fact yesterday in a shop I nearly grabbed a man and bit him, thinking that he was my husband. Some would point out that it's never ok to bite someone, husband or not, but I think they're full of crap.
