I'm not even gonna lie. I played the most perfect prank on Johnny yesterday.
For the last 9 months, Johnny (who is childless and has never been married), has been giving me hell (all in good fun) about being pregnant.
The jokes have been daily! And I've been taking it and taking it and taking it!
'Laura you're so salty today...must be hormones'
'Laura, you need to put down the cupcake!'
'Laura, be careful not to snatch food from little children'
'Laura, your ankles look like Kletus Klump'
'Laura, when you get home today, you should give your husband a big hug for being able to put up with you'
You name anything you shouldn't say to a pregnant woman and I guarantee he's said it to me on the air!!!
And up until TODAY, I've taken it in stride. So, I decided to get him back for ALL of it!
I poured an entire glass of water on the floor and on my lap when he was yapping away about something on-air. ;) He didn't even notice the splash sound.
I then started complaining during the commercial break about how I didn't 'feel so well'.
By the time we got back from the break...Johnny said, "Laura...what's going on with you? You're looking very pale and your eyes are watering..."
I said, "I don't know...I'm cramping...(I looked down) Oh my god my water broke!!!!!...there's water on the floor Johnny!!!!"
(I'll have audio and/or video for you as soon as our video guy is back in town...we DID record it though!)
His reaction was priceless...he screamed like an adolescent Bieber fan who just caught his sweaty towel at a concert.
My primary care doctor even texted me that I should GO TO THE HOSPITAL! The amazing nurses at "The Baby Place" who were listening even called each other to prepare for my arrival!!
Luckily, I had the foresight to alert my husband to the prank minutes before I did it. But, I didn't have time to alert my siblings, mother or anyone else in my family! (They weren't too amused)
We all spent the next half hour just reassuring everyone that it was a joke. I knew some folks might have been a little annoyed, but for the most part, it was a HIT and the people who couldn't even get out of the car because they wanted to hear what happened, got a good laugh out of it.
And even the annoyed and happy listeners could agree on one thing...JOHNNY DESERVED EVERY BIT OF IT!!
