Last night the youth group thought they were going to prank our house with toilet paper. Little did they know elders, deacons, ministers, and their wives were waiting in the bushes with a hose and water balloons. The bus pulls up, youth get out, bus doors close, youth get soaked. Pretty funny. Even funnier was when a random teenager was walking down the sidewalk right in the middle of the craziness and he got sprayed with the hose. Turns out he lives four doors down and both his parents are cops. He walks home and tells his mom he got sprayed by a man with a hose. She doesn’t believe him and the following conversation in their home went something like this
Son: “Mom, I got sprayed by some man with a hose and a bunch of kids are tp’ing our neighbor’s house.”
Mother: “Why didn’t you call me?”
Son: “I did call you, you didn’t answer.”
Mother: “Why didn’t you call the police?”
Son: “I did, you are the police.”
Mother still doesn’t believe him, sees he is wet and opens the door only to see a piece of toilet paper roll down the street.”
Son: “Mom, I am telling you the truth. They got in a church bus and drove off!”
Mom calls the police and walks to our house a little upset. What starts off a little awkward turns into a great conversation about kids and church and mutual friends in Saint Petersburg. In the end a good time was had by all.
I have a feeling we may experience some repercussions from the youth group who went home soaked and even had to clean up the tp before they left! You haven’t really lived until you have seen an elder and a preacher tossing water balloons at kids.
