SWEET TEA

Hard fall.


"There was a nail on the field & Grace hit it-Ouch!!"

We received this photo/text from our daughter this 
afternoon, regarding Grace, who is our 9 yr old Granddoll.  
(They are in Oklahoma.
We are in Louisiana.)
We winced.  Poor Grace!
We called but couldn't reach them,
so we began texting to see how Grace was feeling,  did she get a tetanus shot, plastic surgeon, etc. etc.

Finally, we got a "call back" from our daughter.
"Scroll down", she said.
"What?"
"Scroll down - there is more to the text."

We scrolled down and read,
"Just kidding, the Zombies were sporting 
Zombie tatoos today! 
(Grace asked me to play this joke on you) 

The Zombies are our Granddoll's soccer team.

Not funny.

Well, actually it is funny since it wasn't true.
This photo looked so real on the tiny phone screen where we originally saw it for the first time.  

We'd been punked. 
"Halloween Punked"!
She got us good.
And we fell for it.
Hard.

Ever been "punked" 
or fell hard for a practical joke?

*sorry for the strange spacing and word divisions.
I guess it is the season for all types of gremlins
and zombies in the posting of this blog.

You got me. It never occurred to me that it wasn't real. We're old aren't we?

I've worked in surgery for 40yrs...I thought, "whoever sewed that girls face should be shot!"...Gotta love Grandkiddos!

Oh, my! It would have scared me to death! I actually stepped on a nail at a jr. High school football game and my parents didn't take me to get a tetanus shot until the next day! I held my mouth open all night convinced I was getting lock jaw! :)

I'll bet lots of folks get zombie jokes this year!

I kind of don't like practical jokes that have the potential to really upset someone. Glad you found out as soon as you did that it was a "joke"

WOW that was very very real.
rusty nails are no fun. Mom jumped down from a tree house when she was a wee lass when she was visiting her cousin. The nail went in her heel. It went in pretty deep too.
In no time swollen and horrid looking. She had to get a shot and could not walk for nearly a week
Hugs Madi
