I went hiking with my professional story teller friend, Michael, today. It was an easy hike, on flat terrain, and mud was not an issue. I wore my hiking boots and he wore...his new red sneakers! I started singing "I love my red shoes...I love my red shoes..." from the Pete the Cat children's book. To my surprise, he did not know the book. I've read it to preschoolers literally hundreds of times. I snarled. After our hike, I was heading to my truck to bring it near his, so he could give me some stereo gear to test out. I encountered some young people who were stretching for a late afternoon jog on the same trail that Michael and I had just hiked. Three gals and one guy, I think. I asked them if they could pull a small prank on my friend and they said yes. I said when you get to that guy over there, can you sing, "I love your red shoes! I love your red shoes!" We rehearsed it quietly. As I made it to my truck, I secretly watched as they jogged by him, still stretching and flexing. Then I heard it: "I love your red shoes! I love your red shoes!" Michael laughed out loud as I fired up my truck to bring it next to his Prius. Now that I think about it, he and I didn't even discuss my prank as we loaded some stereo gear into the back of my truck. Do you ever pull little pranks on your friends?
