Sheila had always wanted to travel. Her family didn’t have much money and her life started quite young. In her 20’s she found the love of her life, had a baby, got married, and moved a few times. In her 30’s she had another baby and had to raise them both. But now her children are grown, she’s still young and traveling is within her reach. She’s traveling with her family, been to Disney world, down the shore, on cruises, but nothing without them. Sheila felt this was the time in her life where she would be able to travel with her friends, finally see the places she’s wanted to see. She took a trip with her girlfriends to Las Vegas. Sheila isn’t much of a gambler, but her other friends are big gamblers so there weren’t many long nights for Sheila during this trip. One night her friends went out to one of the casinos so Sheila went back to their hotel room. She lay in bed and watched TV until the ladies came back from the casino. Sheila had gotten out of bed when they came back in and her one friend Donna said,” Ouch Shirley, my arm still hurts.” Sheila looked from Shirley to Donna and said,” why does your shoulder hurt?” Shirley and Donna looked at each other and said,” Well, we kind of did a thing while we were out.” Sheila looked at them both with curious eye,” What kind of a thing?” Shirley sat down on the edge of the bed,” Well Sheil,” as she lifted her sleeve,” we got tattoos tonight.” Sheila’s eyes went wide open in a split second in complete shock. “No you did not do that.” Sheila was so stunned she was not expecting that at all. The tattoos looked completely real and the way they went with the story it seemed true. Donna and Shirley started to laugh and Sheila started to look at them very confused. They started laughing even harder. Sheila could not figure out what was going on. Finally, Donna said,” Of course we didn’t, they were just fake stick ons.” Sheila started to laugh too because they really had her going. As much as Shirley and Donna are adventurous, tattoos are not the kind of thing they are that adventurous about. Shirley laughed and said,” Yeah we really had you going didn’t we?” Sheila just looked at her with this, ‘oh yeah you totally got me “look and they all started laughing again. Shirley was planning on playing the prank on her daughter Samantha too, so they asked Sheila to just go with it. After the way Sheila reacted it was going to be even funnier and more dramatic with Shirley’s daughter. They were in different rooms so it was something that would have to wait until breakfast the next day. Donna, Shirley, and Sheila got ready for bed, but before they went to bed while the TV and lights were off, Sheila said,” I really can’t believe you guys played a prank on me.” Shirley chuckled and said,” Well, that’s what friends are for I guess.”
