The Yellow Rain Slicker

I have a brother in law that is fun and funny! That's a dangerous combination.

For a few years now, we have been passing this yellow rain slicker back and forth. Secretly hiding it in each others houses or luggage. Always trying to come up with ways to get it back into the other persons possession.

This last time, the dirty dog employed his wife. She has twin boys that are a few years older than my oldest. She sent some hand-me-down clothes a few months back. Well, when I finally sat down to sort through them and look what was inside the bag....



The yellow slicker!!! DRAT!!!!


Patience is key.. I've been holding onto it for about 6 mths.. waiting for the perfect moment to return it.

Well, tonight while I enjoy my brother's birthday bash, my children are spending the night at their house.

I thought about using one of my kids as my Trojan horse - but I just can't trust them to not get caught. So I will have to do it myself when I pick them up Saturday morning.

I'm hoping they have some snow finally - because it would be perfect to stash it in a snow bank. Imagine his face when Spring comes and the snow begins to melt.. and.. wait.. what?.. whats that yellow thing under the snow?.. Dang that HEIDI!!!!!

Muuahahahahahaa... muahahahahaaa...

LOL that is too funny! You could always put it between a mattress and boxspring, it would be there for quite some time too!

Too funny! My older siblings used to do something like this but alas none of them ever get together anymore so that fun died.
