A few nights ago, Bainwen and I went out to dinner. Our waitress was adequate enough, but a mite dim. Well, after a dinner of just laughing and joking, the waitress came by to collect the bottled sauces and knocked over the pepper shaker.

Everyone knows the superstition where salt is thrown over the left shoulder- it tosses salt in the Devil's eye. Well, I was in a mischevious mood, so I just told the waitress that she needed to toss the pepper over her right shoulder- makes the Devil sneeze.

Bainwen backed me up, claiming everyone knew that, and the waitress bought it. She lit up, and started talking about how much bad luck she probably had seen from that!

So, if ever you want to mess with a waitron's head, mention pepper. :-)

And exactly when are you NOT in a mischievous mood, my love? :-P

Did you start sneezing? You are a little devil for playing tricks on that waitress. All in good fun. Better than being a stick in the mud!

So, those little bumps on your head are rudimentary horns, then? :-P

Really, the look on the waitress's face was just too hilarious! I thought for sure there was no way she could possibly believe us. Evidently we found the most gullible waitress in town.

You two sound so much like the Hub and me - we're always "improv"-ing and goofing on gullible people. :)

I'll have to remember this one ;)

Stephen and I used to pull stuff like this too. During our sophomore year, we had at least half of the freshmen convinced that our speech teacher's long hair was actually a wig. We also convinced one of the speech team members - who'd been on the team the year before and should have known better.

I've always enjoyed messing with people dumber than me as well.
