Sometimes we do…

Yank your chain….

It’s the late 70’s and myself and a crowd of my cousin’s neighborhood cronies were enroute to the amusement park…

This was usually an all day affair and well into the evening, so I took the wheelchair and was cheerfully ‘pushed around’ by the group, some taking shifts, so that my cousin didn’t have to push all day.

We were in line to get in…and one of the kids said…”Wait Wait…I’ve got an idea…”

So she swung full tilt into tent revival mode, fire and brimstone preaching right into my face loudly and at length, commanding that I be healed. She was high volume and we drew a small crowd that turned to look without ever quite giving up their place in line.

At a given point, I was told to ‘stand and walk,’ and obediently stood and took a few awkward steps, well within my capabilities at the time… The group stood amazed with stunned looks…the little ones clapped, appreciating the show…

And then we all started laughing and I went back to the chair…

And the adults in the crowd looked either sheepish or outright pissed off, to have been had in such a way…

But some scenarios are just too good to pass up.

    This reminds me of a terrific practical joke I seem to remember, where a certain person “got religion” one weekend when her roommate was out of town…

    Yep. Sometimes we yank your chain.

    Pfft. Snort….

    Seems to me that certain person had a great deal of help with religious parphenalia et al, provided by a willing co conspirator….

    It was probably my karma for being *that* gullible, that I eventually married a preacher student….

    Life is strange
