Last week SOMEBODY put this cute little ad on craigslist linked to MY email and MY phone number:
BYU vs. Utah football game tickets and tailgate!
all SLC byu fans, reserve a spot at our bi-annual tailgate party before the big BLUE vs utah game, Saturday, Nov 22. come join us anytime after 12:00 noon. call for location and details, 277.2777 — four game tickets in drawing.
Thanks to free advertising, I’ve been fielding calls (including the crazy guy at 4 a.m.!) and emails all week long from rabid fans desperate for a party and dreaming of free tickets to the annual rivalry game where seats are going for $500+ each. And all week long we’ve been planning REVENGE.
Jane promised she would help. She’d call when Roger was away and we could pull our pranks.
But she turned on us. Not only did she leave us hanging by the phone but she alerted Roger (such wifely loyalties!) and he parked his truck across our driveway. We weren’t going anywhere last night unless we called a cab.
Wiping our tears, we crept into bed and dreamed of revenge in the morning. But we awoke to this:
a helpful reminder that it’s our turn to clean the church today. So considerate.
and suggested apparel for the day– happily the perpetrators dropped the receipt for the tee and visor on the lawn. We returned them– and used the $$$ to buy supplies for REVENGE.
Ha ha ha! You are funding your own demise my friends.
Abandoning subtlety we set out in broad daylight to paint Roger’s windows, decorate his office, string blue lights across his porch, blast the Cougar fight song on repeat play and steal all his U of U shirts.
But he had a U shirt on. And Ben took care of that.
It’s OK, Rog, we left you a nice clean Cougar t-shirt hanging in your closet. Enjoy the game!
I probably shouldn’t admit that we went on a bit of a rampage after that, painting windows all over the neighborhood. The irony is that we haven’t watched a game all season and will have to visit our neighbors with cable TV if we want to catch a glimpse today.
Still, winning is the best revenge. GO BYU BLUE!
