On my way out the door this morning, I saw the cats' water dish was empty. I usually just leave the hose lying in the dish, and turn it on for a few seconds every couple days. Today I noticed that something had been attached to the end of the hose.
Upon closer inspection, I realized it was the lid from a soda bottle, and it fit perfectly on the end of the hose.
But the cats still needed water, so I twisted the cap off the hose.
Apparently the child that had discovered that a soda lid fit the hose went as far as to pressure-test their new invention.
The moment I twisted the cap-
an arcing spray-
and I was doused with ice-cold water.
Hair, glasses, make-up, clothes, purse ... all drenched.
And did i mention it was 36 degrees outside?
The shock of cold water, along with the freezing air, I couldn't remember being that cold in a long, long time.
When I find out who did it, I'll wait until they are lying in their warm bed, and toss ice-cube-filled water balloons at them.
"April Fool's! Hahaha! You shoulda seen your face!"
