Walsh has a new favorite trick that Rose is absolutely hating. He likes to sneak up on her, or sometimes he even lies in wait inside her darkened closet, and then he bursts out yelling “French Indochina.”
The sneak attack is an old gag but what cracks me up about it is the use of the phrase “French Indochina.” I think he got it on Brain Pop watching videos about the Vietnam War. Somehow it has become his attack mantra.
Rose screams as she is startled by him and gets very upset. But she can be equally aggravating to her siblings as well – although less creatively.
She has other little catch phrases like “Wee Wee,” “Honk!,” “Walsh es Tonto”(which she says means stupid in Spanish but I don’t think so).
My brother and I used to pull the jobs together and jump out at babysitters. I remember hiding on top of the refrigerator and a new sitter sitting down at the kitchen table and me scaring the heck out of her. I also recall leaving a lizard in the Mathis milk box to scare the poor milkman.
A friend of ours out here says that his adult brother’s favorite gag is to turn on his seat heater in the car without him knowing it. It will be like 110 degrees and he feels hotter and hotter and doesn’t figure out his brother turned on his seat. The brother thinks it’s hysterical! (Now Michael and I are both paranoid that the other one is doing it.)
What little gags do you kids do to annoy each other? Do you have any gags that you pull with your adult siblings?
