"Pay Back Time"

You know that when we were kids and our parents told us the rule in life "You Reap What You Sow?" Or "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you?" Well, I talked to Rachel last night and it is becoming very apparent that she is getting her just rewards, so to speak. She is known to be a practical joker and on their last ftx, she caused quite a stir when she scared a few senior staff cadets. (Some coming out of the porta pottie) They swore revenge on her and when I was talking to her on the phone the other night, she received her first scare, which nearly took five years off her mothers' life because she screamed into the phone. She proceeded to tell me that a couple nights ago that her and another staff cadet were so freaked out they were almost crying! They were in there tents (like the one in the picture above) and it was just before midnight when it started and they could hear footsteps outside. When they called out, of course no one is going to answer. First of all, if someone is trying to scare you, they aren't going to say, "It's just me out here walking around your tent trying to freak you guys out, don't worry about it, I'll be done shortly. " If it is a kid who is up to no good,they aren't going to answer. We humans are funny sometimes aren't we? Admit it...we all do it. Anyway, they whipped open the door and didn't see anyone and this carried on for a bit and each time they whipped open the door no one was there. They even ventured down the road around 12:30 am, scared spitless!!! So they came back into the tent and sat on the bunk huddled next to each other, shivering, almost crying. Now, the kind, sympathetic mom that I am, was cracking up! I was getting a great visual here. Anyway, about the time they couldn't take much more suspense, someone cracked their binder on the outside of the tent and Rachel let out this blood curdling scream! Remember she received an official fun award last year for the "Best Pipes". Don't know how many she woke up this time, but I had a good chuckle. I once again reminded her, as parents are prone to do, that you reap what you sow. I also had to let her know that the most sightings of Saskquatchs are in the BC, Wash., and Idaho area. She wasn't to happy with me for that one because we had all read this fiction book on them not long ago, and now I know her imagination will be working overtime!!!!! She said that Vernon was too central and populated! But the seed is planted....hee, hee, hee. Imagination is a wonderful thing!
