Practical Joke #2283 Renee texts the Mother-in-Law

I had been pretty busy with everything going on, as people with family understand. Often I do not have time to get back to friends or send E-mail or even text. One friend comes to mind, and always will, when I think of the word text in this situation, Renee Tennant.

She was missing the opportunity to get to chat on Facebook and I wasn’t responding to any other interface so she wrote me a text saying ” I miss you” (she would say…I miss you buddy but there really was no” buddy” on it). My wife was holding the phone when it went off. “Who MISSES YOU?” She asked. It had no name just a number but I recognized it was one from New York. “Oh! It’s Renee” I said “I haven’t been on Facebook or Twitter in a while…she probably wonders what happened to me.” “That was awfully personal sounding!” says my wife. “You wanna mess with her?” I asked…my wife grinned “Yes!”

So as I was driving my wife and I agreed on what to type back and this is what was said:

Wife: Who is this?!!

Renee: Oh! LOL a friend!

Wife: Stuart left his phone over here at my house this is his mother-in-law! WHO ARE YOU?

Renee: I am a friend of Stuart from New York !LOL!

Wife:Yeah I’ll bet! …once a cheater always a cheater!

Wife: That explains a lot!

Renee:No No Just friends I can assure you! LOL!

Meanwhile…Renee is typing on my Facebook and Twitter “Buddy I am Sooo Sorry! I made a mistake today!!”

She stewed for quite a while and then against my pleading my wife let Renee of the hook by texting back introducing herself to Renee and pointing out that it was against my wishes! Ratted out by my own wife! I guess there is no honors amongst pranksters either! Oh well I’ve got broad shoulders I’ll bear the weight of the deed, I guess. but Renee may have to bear a few gray hairs over that one!(She call’s them silver…PFFFT! Bawhahaha!)

And the moral of this story: Never write things that could be used against you…but then what can’t be when it gets right down to it? people shouldn’t text.

      Renee is a great sport!…and I have to admit I couldn’t resist watching her squirm especially knowing how she reacts, but she did say something to the effect of what could I do cause she lives in New York when talking about April fools day. Just goes to show, We are only limited by our imagination and the willingness to do whats necessary! Great to see you Lady P
      Take care!

          You do realize I could edit your whole comment in my favor don’t you? LOL! Good ‘ol Stuart didn’t do that though… Could have made you say something like:”Oh Stuart your the best guy I know! and that joke…that was SOOO Fun!” But I didn’t …probably should have, but didn’t! :-p

    How funny! Our family is full of pranksters who love nothing better than a practical joke. Of course that means we have thick skins too. Good one Stuart and Renee!
