The Prank that Keeps on Giving

So, in our haste to post something onto our dying blog we realized that we forgot to post about the prank of wonder and awe. About halfway through the day Jamie and I needed to take the last of her stuff over to our place. Upon our great surprise we opened the truck to put stuff in the car and found that it was loaded to the brim with 2-Liter Coke bottles. We ran inside to spred the news among Jamie's family by saying "Our trunk is full of Coke!" Jamie's Grandpa said very matter of factly, "And there is something wrong with this?"

So we load everything in the back seat and run our errands. Fast forward through the reception we are making our grand exit into married life only to be stopped by what we think at first is just a saran wrapped car.

Being te resourceful little boyscout that I am I shout, "Don, where's your knife?" to make quick work of the gift wrapped glory.

Little did we realize that this was only half the prank that night. The best was yet to come. We open the door to find coke lining the front two seats and much of the back seat, the truck is full to the brim and we have no where to put it all. All the while everyone is singing, "99 bottles of coke in your car..."

After finding all the nooks and crannies in our car we finally start to drive off and boy is our little rice burner not happy about the extra weight. Whenever we turned the weight of the shifting liquid floods to one side of the car making it hard to control. We felt every bump in the road and considering there is road construction everywhere that is a lot. Finally we get home declaring "We'll deal with this in the morning."

Morning came and we're faced with the daunting task of bringing all 99 bottles of coke up to our second story apartment before we leave on our honeymoon. We get a sudden stroke of inspiration that only could have come from above. Use our suitcases. So we load up our suitcases with coke and make three or four trips upstairs. I loaded the first guy up so much I almost threw out my shoulder. Once it's upstairs we leave, declaring, "We'll deal with this when we get back."

Well to shorten this painfully long blog we put all the coke on the wall... kind of. Now whenever we take one down we sing, "Take one down and pass it around..." Jamie had one more stroke of genius that I will be forever grateful for. Each cap has a code. Each code is worth three points. Meaning we have over 300 points to spend on stuff like magazine subscriptions or cooking stuff or if we really wanted more Coke. Right now, with bonus points and a work party, we're at over 50 points. We'll let you know what we save up for.

  1. I was driving home from church yesterday and I thought of this again and I just started laughing hysterically, all over again. It's the gift that keeps on giving, totally!! I'll never look at a bottle of Coke the same way again!!
