How to freak your father out…

17 Jun

…on Father’s Day.

Because that’s the type of daughter I am!  Nice right?

Step 1:  Find a willing accomplice and ask her if she’ll do you an odd favor.  When she says yes, ask her to draw a piece of bacon with the word “bacon” on it.

Step 2:  Get your supplies together

You’ll need your picture of bacon (on tracing paper drawn in pencil), liquid black eyeliner, and liquid band-aid. 

Step 3:  Cut out your picture of bacon and put on arm  It is helpful to lightly tape it down. 

Step 4: Get a paper towel or wash cloth.  Get it nice and damp, apply it to your picture.  You’ll want to press down and make sure to get the paper wet.

It’ll leave a slight pattern on your arm.

Step 5: Take your liquid eyeliner and trace your picture of bacon.

Step 6:  Once you’re happy with how the bacon looks, apply the liquid band-aid. 

It’ll look nice and shiny, but smell horrible. 

Step 7: And this is the most important step…wait patiently until you father comes over.  Hide your arm until the opportune time.

Step 8:  Show your father your arm and wait for a reaction! 

The End!

My dad’s  reaction was pretty good.  I showed him my arm even before he stepped foot inside my apartment.  Again, nice, I know.   He just kind of stood there and didn’t move.  My mom thought it was hilarious, but I’m pretty sure I gave my dad a mini heart attack…

I am such a nice daughter!!
