Short Sheeting The Bed

I have another easy prank for all of you fellow pranksters out there.

At one of our family gatherings in Florida a bunch of us were renting a condo together. My mother and I decided to short sheet my aunts bed.

If you don’t know anything about short sheeting a bed it’s a way of folding the sheet in half and tucking it in so it looks like the sheet is on as normal. When the person climbs in they can’t stretch their legs. It’s quite easy to do.

The best time to do it is when it’s late and everyone is exhausted. The lights are out and all of a sudden you hear “What the heck?” coming from the next room. Of course, everyone gets up to see what’s going on and you have a great laugh before going to sleep.

What made this prank even funnier was I pulled the prank on the prankster too. I short sheeted my mother and fathers bed.  A double header! Yahoo! Mom was quite surprised when she crawled into her bed to find that her sheets in fact had been short sheeted as well. It was hysterical.

I don’t think there’s anything more joyous than laughing so I choose to do it often. Find a way to bring some laughter into your life daily and see if you notice a difference in how you feel.

Experience joy and pass it on!

    I seem to remember my parents telling me a story about you short sheeting their bed when they visited you in Boone. Mom laughed and laughed telling me the story! I love you!

    I think you’re right. We did short sheet their bed! Wow-I was pretty bold to do that since I didn’t know them that well. I exposed my true colors.
