Me + Rubber Band = Trouble

One of my many funny high school stories...

I think I was a freshman in high school when this took place. At the time, I had a special talent of shooting rubber bands. This unique gift was sharpened due to the fact that I had wasps in my apartment, which I would shoot out of the air with rubber bands. Of course, my excellent aim was not limited to blowing up annoying bugs.

One Wednesday night at a youth group meeting, I found a few lonely rubber bands that needed to be used. My first victim? The youth pastor, of course. He made the terrible mistake of turning his back to me. Haha. Out came a rubber band and promptly smacked him square in the back.

"HEY!!" he shouted, leaping several feet in the air.

Don't ask me how it escaped from my pocket. I never saw it coming... neither did he.

Ouch. I still shoot people that way sometimes, but never people that can put it in a file somewhere! Haha.

That's gotta hurt! Did he ever get you back on that one?

~Thank you posting this :)

Nope. When he turned around I was gone. I strike, then disappear.

*cute evil laugh*

Yes, Matthew I have a naughty streak. Right, Jules?

You could have been accused of sexual harrassment, you know.

A bit sneaky...

Leila, we were always playing pranks on each other, along with his two boys who were a little older than I. Can someone really get accused of sexual harrasment for popping someone with a rubber band??

Muahahaha! That's hilarious. My whole family is now asking me why I'm laughing so hard. o_o
I'm an avid follower of Jesus too. Nice to semi-meet another.

Nice to 'meet' you too, Madd! Thanks for visiting!

*laughing* I laugh at things people write too and my family is like, "What's so funny?" Oh, nothing. *giggle* *giggle*

Depends on where you were aiming, you could be accused.

I have seen people freak out for the least of things.
