Papaw, Mo, and Uncle Stephen were in Lubbock for a visit this weekend.
At their hotel yesterday, my father-in-law was waiting to get on the elevator to come down to the pool, where the rest of us had been swimming with the kids. When the elevator arrived at his floor, he could hear us laughing and talking behind the elevator door. So when the elevator doors opened, he spread out his arms....jumped forward...and yelled "BOO!"
Except it wasn't us. It was another family.
...and mighty embarrassing!!
Sorry to laugh at your expense, Papaw, but it really does lift my spirits to hear of other people doing that sort of thing! It's usually me!
Thank you, Starr (and Danny!), for that very good laugh! Pawpay, pray do tell what the family behind door # 1 did do at this surprise!!
Dear Queen...I would describe this poor family's first reaction as fear...then hysteria...then embracing this crazy Papaw and delivering him via elevator to his 'real' family.
