Sick sense of humor

Yesterday morning I was having a frustrating time photographing my memo boards so I was a little neglectful of Reagan, leaving the TV to babysit while I kept snapping away. After about 15 mins she headed into the kitchen and called out "Mom, I need your help." I told her I'd be down shortly, 2 secs later (patience isn't a gift that comes easily to her) she called up again "I really need you Mom." Now I'm getting a little irritated, I'm trying to make a buck and all she wants to do is play some flipping computer game, so I said rather sternly "I'll get there in a minute" 10 seconds later and I hear in a pitiful tone "Mom, please help me." Now I'm pissed, I yell "I'm coming down right now." Well it was a couple of mins later, I walked out into the kitchen only to see my child layed out on the floor, arms limp at her side, head flopped to one side and her eyes closed. My heart leapt into my chest, I honestly thought I was going to throw up, I grabbed the phone and then bent down and with my empty hand went to check her pulse at which time she opened her eyes and screamed "BOO !!". Holy Shit, I about crapped my pants. She laughed her ass off thinking it was the funniest thing in the world and then looked at me all innocently and said "Now will you get me on Littlest Pet Shop ?" I obliged with heart still racing and a grin spreading across my face, you see I remember doing that very same thing to my brother, only at the time I was selling and being trained to use Leichner stage make up and had just gone to a conference and had, had one on one time with one of the top make up artists in England. I had a capsule of fake blood, broke it open and held it in the corner of my mouth, I made a noise in our spare room that sounded like someone falling, my brother rushed in only to find me laying on the floor and blood pouring from my mouth, Chris ran out screaming "Mum, Mum, Penny's dead." To which I jumped up and yelled "April Fools."
Now what possessed Reagan to do what she did yesterday I have no idea but it gave me a chuckle and bought back some happy memories, LOL. Sorry Chris ;-)

hee hee. Thank you, Reagan for giving me a chuckle today! I really needed it. Sorry for your near heart attack, Penny. I am glad you could see the humor in it.
