If you follow me on Facebook, then you may have seen this photo with following description that I posted the other day…
“Does anyone know any good food related practical jokes that I can use as payback?”
“Toby …! DID YOU REALLY THINK THAT FILLING MY COKE BOTTLE WITH COFFEE GROUNDS AND WATER WOULD HIDE THE FACT THAT YOU DRANK THE LAST OF OUR COKE????!???!
(Unfortunately for me it was dark last night when I poured myself a glass and had a sip -ewwww! And the light of day had not yet revealed your deception!) If I was you Toby I would be very suspicious of any food or drink I serve up to you from now on!!!”
Toby is my Brother-in-law.
I was not impressed.
But I could see the funny side of it …
But nobody messes with me and my coke and gets away with it…
Enter Karen of Astra Studio, (my co-conspirator)… Karen makes these beautiful soaps that look like beautiful slices (and other things). And she runs soap crafting workshops too.
Karen answered my plea for food-related practical jokes almost immediately!
She said: “I do. Would you like to email me your address? I can send something that looks JUST like food. But isn't ;o)”
… And she did!
I tried to trick Toby yesterday… however this didn’t go perfectly to plan… basically due to two reasons:
1) I am a TERRIBLE practical joker! (I mean TERRIBLE)
2) Toby is my blog’s biggest fan (= with my Auntie Anthea) and must have already seen me feature Astra Studio’s soaps on my Facebook page.
Anyway he didn’t end up biting into the soaps…
But I think that is a good thing because that would have been a waste of a lovely soap – these soaps really do smell divine!
I gave one to Toby as a ‘peace-offering’ and I have kept one for us – I’m still getting used to washing my hands with citrus slice.
They say revenge is sweet and in this case it smells delicious!
Thanks so much Karen!
