I fancy myself as rather clever, but I don’t possess the prankster bone. A couple years ago I went on an Alaskan cruise with my family. My cousin gave me the tickets for a day trip we would be taking the next day and a stern reminder not to forget them. She and her boyfriend were going to meet us at the shuttle, as they were going to leave the ship early to look around. I was deemed most responsible between my brother, another cousin and myself. I decided I was going to pretend to have lost them the next day, being the smartypants that I am. I figured that would show her for doubting me.
As we walked to the shuttle to embark on our day trip, she asked if I had the tickets. I first pretended not to have them, intending to proudly wave them in her face once she'd had her freak out. Until I realized that I actually did not have them. Red faced, I turned and bolted back to the ship (almost a mile away). I did find the tickets, wedged in between pages of my camera manual. Then I had to run back to the shuttle just in time for them to board and have my entire family laugh at me.
