The other day my daughter and I were at a store when I saw a cop I knew from work. He was looking at something on a shelf and didn’t know I was there. That’s when I thought of something funny to do.
I turned to my daughter and said, “See that guy over there? I work with him.” She peeked around the corner and saw him. I told her his first name and asked her to go up to him and say, “Did you arrest my dad?”
A shocked look flashed across her face as she laughed and said she couldn’t do it. After a few seconds of laughing she asked, “Are you sure it’s him?”
“Yes,” I replied.
She took a deep breath as she tried to put a serious look on her face. The serious look turned to a smile as she laughed and said, “I can’t do it.”
Now we were both laughing.
My daughter looked at me and said, “Okay, but you have to walk up when I do it.”
We walked over to the Kevin’s aisle and stopped. My daughter took one more deep breath and walked with a purpose toward my unsuspecting friend as she said, “Kevin, did you arrest my dad?”
Kevin turned toward my daughter with a surprised look on his face as he softy asked, “What?”
I stepped forward just in time to see the priceless look on his face. He turned toward me and realized he was pranked. He took a deep breath as the color came back to his face.
We shook hands and I introduced my daughter to him. He was much more relaxed now and shook hands with my daughter as he said hello.
We talked for a moment and then parted ways as we continued shopping. It was truly a priceless moment and he was a good sport about it.
