I am terrible at telling jokes, so the only way I can make many people laugh at once is to be the klutz that I am, or to pull a prank. I have always wanted to put plastic wrap across a toilet as a prank, but not have to deal with the repercussions of doing so. I think I missed out by not living on campus during university because of the pranks I could have pulled. It feels a little sad to write that, but it's true. I went to the parties I wanted to go to and lived by myself after university, but the pranks? that's what I missed out on.
This isn't to say that I have never pulled a prank. In elementary school I made the bottom of a glass black and made my friends put water on their fingers, rub the bottom of the glass and then on their faces... which of course made them have black lines. I successfully planted a whoopee cushion beneath a seat and made others laugh. It is more fun when you pull a prank on friends than when you pull one on family. I learned at a young age that pulling pranks on your family isn't safe. It will always come back to haunt you when you bring a new boyfriend over or are hungover. One day I will plan a successful prank that goes beyond the need for rubber chickens and whoopee cushions.
