This is my Father’s day, because he was always the prankster. He liked making people laugh and he came up with some pretty silly things.
Short-sheeting beds, saran wrap on the toilet, and rubber snakes (scaring my mom), but the most memorable one for me was one Easter holiday.
My dad thought it was hilarious to blindfold his kids for the Easter egg hunt. We were older and smarter (I think I was seven), so finding the eggs would have been easy for us that was until we were blindfolded.
As we hunted for the eggs, my mom and dad yelled, Warm or Cold. They laughed and laughed. And took pictures of us struggling to find the eggs with our eyes covered.
Yeah, memories of my father’s twisted humor. Always, it makes me smile and laugh.
Miss you, Dad.
