Aw, Man! Got The Old Lady!!!!
Ok, I know this isn't a PowerStroke-related kill story, but it does involve a 'pickup truck' & 'getting killed'. Here it is:
My wife had been nagging me for some time to replace a ballast in a light fixture over our sink in the downstairs kitchen. I had today off, so I finally decided to do it. I had my tools out getting ready to pull the old ballast out & put the new one in, when a terrible, horrible, sinister plan came to mind. Now, my wife comes home everyday @ 11:30 for lunch, & I thought it would be a great idea to show her I had got to fixing the light......& then some. Before she got home, I needed to find something that makes a loud buzzing sound for some effect. I couldn't find anything that made a real loud buzzing sound, but I did find my son's Destroyer monster truck toy pictured above in his room. It's one of those toys that you push across the floor & it goes. It makes a loud 'whirring' sound & the harder/faster you push it, the louder the whir. Soooooooooooooooo, I got the ballast fixed before she got home & only had to wait about 5-10mins. for her to get in. I was standing on the chair with my back faced away from where she came in, under the light with a 1/4" ratchet in one hand pretending I'm screwing in something in the light fixture, & the Destroyer in the other. She comes in the house & says; "Hey, Hon! You got the light fixed!", & I say something to the effect of "Yup, & it didn't take too long to...." & right in the middle of my sentence, I push the Destroyer off my chest & it made a REALLY loud whir. I started yelling & moving like I was being zapped & I hear her yell "HOLY SH#%!!!!" Right when she ran up to the chair, she saw the truck & says "Funny! Real fu#%ing funny!!!" with her 'heart attack' face on. She knows I'm a practical joker, & after her nerves went to normal she got a good hearty laugh out of it. Then she goes on to say; "Well, I didn't know what to think. I knew I shouldn't touch you, so I didn't. I was wondering why the hell the fuse didn't pop!". Aw, man! I love my wife! I knew I made this practical joke a little too steep, but she has a great sense of humor & still loves me! For anyone who's about to say anything negative about my pranks, fear not: She's gonna get me @ some point today because she's a practical joker herself!
