Me: “Check it out, I found this in that box of my old toys.”
Gene: “What is it?”
Me: “Here, you can look at it.”
Gene: “A tiny pillow with a pocket on the front.” He sticks a finger in the pocket, as I knew he would. “What’s it for?”
Me: “When I was a kid I used to put my teeth in there for the tooth fairy.”
Gene: [Stands frozen, finger still in the pocket.]
Me: “I’m not sure it’s ever been washed.”
He flings the pillow away and runs to the sink. I laugh and laugh.
The best prank ever.
