A Plea

Shhhh.... don't let the people from the Pine Ridge blog read this .... but If you're reading this, I need your help.


You see, this year when we go to the rez, I think I'm in BIG trouble. Really big trouble.

Last year me and another person on the team who will remain nameless, were involved in a prank. We stole Josh's underwear and socks out of his luggage, put them in a zip-loc baggie, filled it with water, and froze them. Once he discovered them missing he had to wait for them to (1) thaw out, and (2) dry out before he could use them.

That started something akin to war.

This year he has sworn to get even. I have no idea what he's up to but I do know that James is involved and I have the feeling that he has recruited others to join him on his evil mission - including my dear sweet husband and my son(s). This can't be good. He may in fact be trying to get the entire team involved.

So, what I need from you is this:

  1. If you read here, please, please, please give me some ideas of what I can do to get him back. I need some really awesome prank ideas.

  2. If you happen to be on the 2007 team, then I beg of you, DO NOT JOIN THEIR RANKS. Help me instead. C'mon Allison?? You're going to be my daughter-in-law - we've got to stick together right?Debbie?? Cathy??? Connie??? You're my friends, right?? Someone??? Anyone???

In the meantime, once we get out there, I'm wearing all of my underwear every day and peeling off one pair a day.

Grow up? Give me a break. Is there something wrong with having fun? Mr. or Ms. Anonymous, in case you hadn't noticed, Amber gets a little stressed in putting these things together. I applaud her effort to inject levity into the experience. You may feel that she needs to grow up, but you need to learn something about love.

Thanks Gary and Hallchick. Comments by anonymous people really bug me. I did find it interesting that the comment was to "grow up" ... considering that leaving anonymous mean-spirited comments is not so terribly mature itself. I do wish stupid things like this didn't bug me, but they do. Less than they used to, but I wish I could blow them off completely. Instead, I tracked anonymous to see who it was via Statcounter.
