was severely damaged by my

e) woefully under appreciated

prank. How could I have known that the

a) car
b) jet ski

d) rodent driven sledge
e) Zamboni

I was riding in would go so far out of control? And while it is true that I should not have pointed it in the direction of your

b) wife,
c) Cub Scout troop,
d) 1/16th sized replica of the Statue of Liberty, complete
with light bulb in the torch,

and to remember that I am first and foremost your

I think that counts for more than one prank, especially one that
a) was so stupid.

e) I'm going to use again on someone else.
