Another parental prank/punk

When my sons were quite young (single digit ages) we lived in South Florida.  This was in the '70s when the Florida construction boom was in full flower.  Thus huge flatbed trucks carrying sod for the new homes' lawns were frequently spotted.  Every time we were riding in the car and saw one, I would (in a very serious tone of voice) inform my sons that this was because the "rich folks" had sent ther lawns out for dry-cleaning!  Once they started rolling their eyes as soon as I started to relate this bit of parental misinformation, the subject was dropped.  Since both sons and their families now live in NYC, I have few opportunities to revisit this with our grandchildren.

As a "retired hippy" he's pretty laid-back, so not likely.

@mhrackin: He replied last evening: he did NOT know that I was the perprtrator of that little scam, but he did recall learning of it...

I hope he isn't plotting his revenge as we speak...

I would suggest the proper genre is "SURReality Show"!  BTW, is anyone lese having a problem with incredibly slow response times of the EET site?  Like 2+ minutes for a post to appear after clicking "post"?

He replied last evening: he did NOT know that I was the perprtrator of that little scam, but he did recall learning of it. He assumed it was our mother who did it, though!  I think she may have repeated it after I told her of my success with it.  Of course, being a parent, she would take advantage of the "learning experience" aspect, and later tell him he had eaten and enjoyed eggplant.
