Practical joke#24

man boobs!

When I was 10 years old my dad used to mess with me constantly. I was a fat little kid and he used to joke with me about my manbs (man boobs). It all started with him telling me that if I got any fatter I would need a training bra. It progressed to randomly trying to hook one of mom’s bras on me by sneak attack (all in fun of course). Until one day I had taken all I was going to take.

I watched him very carefully and noticed his habits stayed pretty much routine. Every morning he would get up half-dazed and disoriented and fumble around in the dark for his clothes that mom laid out for him the night before. So I got the idea to put one of moms bras on his T-shirt and very carefully drape it on his clothes so that he could not notice in the dark until he put it on ( I was counting on the fact that he would be stumbling around groggily and he would never dream of such an attack.)

I woke up to a quiet alarm. I set it before his and slipped into a place where I could watch the show. Just as I planned…he was half asleep…and he put the shirt on but he couldn’t quite figure out why it was snug…as he was trying to figure it out, I flipped on a light! and said “GOTCHA!” and I ran off laughing hysterically!…mom got a kick out of it too and so did the rest of the family when she told them.

And the moral of this story: Don’t mess with my manbs…man!
