My two boys have this bad habit of trying to scare me with a rubber snake. Now this thing looks real and I am what you call "skeert" of snakes. For some reason they get the biggest kick out of hearing me scream like a little girl. One morning they put the infamous snake in the bathroom to try and give me a heart attack when I was about to take a shower getting ready for work.
What they didn't count on was my wife, lets call her Melissa, going to the bathroom to pee first. It was early in the morning and all she had on was a T-Shirt and a pair of boxers. I was just getting out of bed when I heard all hell break loose and by the time I got to the front of the house she had already ran outside screaming bloody murder.
That was funny enough, but the kicker was that one of my father-in-law's billy goats had gotten loose from it's pen and was also in the yard. Now this is no ordinary goat, it's a fainting goat. When it gets spooked it makes a strange noise and passes smooth out.
Melissa has no idea what a fainting goat is and a few minutes later comes back in the house crying. But not because she was scared of the snake or the goat. In her words it was because "I ran outside and the sight of me half naked done put a farm animal in a coma". I fell out laughing so hard I sprained a rib.
For the next three weeks I had to wake up to her doing aerobics in the living room with "Let's Get Physical" by Olivia Newton John blaring from the stereo.
When I just couldn't stand waking up to that song anymore I finally told her what kind of goat it was. That's when she went physical on my face. It was a small price to pay for a laugh like that… I'm just sayin'.
Side note… If you have never seen a fainting goat please youtube it and see how funny these things are. You will then appreciate this story a whole lot more.
