The numb joke
So last night my sweet wife decides that she is going to be super nice to me. I am studying for a Math test that I have to take today, and just working along, when she sneaks-up behind me, and leans up close to sneak a kiss. I was pretty excited, I mean who doesn't like a surprise nice little kiss. Well, as she kisses me, I smell piña colada, and just assume that it is her chapstick, as her lips feel pretty slick. Then the smell starts to bring back memories of being stuck with a needle at the dentist's office, and it hits me... It wasn't any chapstick she was using, it was topical anesthetic... I hurry and pull away as she has a wicked grin on her face. But then her smile starts to fade, as she too starts going numb. I start laughing, and ask her if she remembered to put Vaseline on her lips first (knowing that we don't have any). She says no, and grabs a tissue, desperately trying to wipe it off. I laughed for ages, as her practical joke to make my lips numb back-fired, and made her more numb than me... Ahhh, so to any-would be practical jokers out there, remember to take steps to prevent the joke from getting you worse than your intended target.
