This is going to be a little long, but bare with me. You’ll like it.
The basics. I live in Provo, Utah and I’m a member of the dominate religion The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, or more commonly known as the Mormon church. On Sundays, we meet in groups decided from geographical areas. These groups are called wards and my ward consists of the majority of my apartment complex. One of the main focuses of the church is unity. Unity of community, etc.
With this set-up, it’s really easy to make good friends, but with 30-something apartments and about 6 people per apartment it’s really hard to know everybody. You know how it is.
So what has been happening these last few months I would have never guessed last semester.
It all started Halloween night… (You know a story is good if it begins like that, eh.)
My roommates and I had gone to a Stake dance (a stake is a big group of wards). We left our door unlocked because one of our roommates left and we didn’t know if she would be coming back. We did know that she did not have her keys and that we would not have our phones. Big mistake. Or was it?
A bunch of cups covering our kitchen floor. Yes. They are filled with water. Yes. They are stapled together. And yes. Those are brownies. There were actually two cases of them. We decided to systematically take the cups apart (later we found out we pretty much did the reverse of the original operation).
We had an idea of who it may have been but we still weren’t sure.
We thought it was a friend of ours but it turned out to not be him. We were kind of at a lost but decided on an apartment to prank back. Our plan was to wait a while. Revenge is best served cold after all. But that was a mistake. Or was it?
We waited too long. On the morning of MLK Day, Roomie Roommate got up to go running. She opened the door to find a surprise.
The entire door jam was filled with snow, from top to bottom. Funny thing is, there was no snow nearby. Someone went through a lot of trouble for this trick. Roomie Roommate was nice enough to wake everyone up to show them before she knocked it down to get through.
There was also a cup stapled to the door frame that said, “Nice to see you again.” and it had the phone number of one of friends. The same one who was framed before.
It was a mistake to prank apartment 10. Or was it?
You’re just going to have to wait to find out.
