Trebek: Mr. Connery, let's see your answer. I'm sorry Alex.
Connery: That I am. I know I give you a hard time, but it's all in good fun, I mean you know that don't you?
Trebek: Well of course I do... Sean. Let's see what you wagered, friend... Trebek is such a fruit.
Connery: Ha!

I just read this to my wife. Her reply,after she stopped laughing, "Oh my god, you are all alike!"

Safety in numbers, gents.

Here's one I tried recently that didn't work:

Winding down the evening, we were kicked back in our recliners enjoying a couple home-brews. She gave me the "I'm empty, refill please" glass waggle. I returned with two fresh glasses, mine with beer, hers with chicken noodle soup. Since the lights were dimmed, I was hoping she wouldn't notice before she took a sip. But she did.

I will wait a couple weeks and try again.

Here's one I did some years ago to a former SWMBO. It was based on a prank I once heard someone pulled on an old college friend so I had banked it for future use when the time was right. We used to prank quite a bit but this was a big one and the time needed to be right.

Late night motorway journeys would invariably turn out that I would drive and SWMBO would promise to stay awake to keep me company but would be asleep within 10 minutes of departure. One night we were travelling and had about a four hour drive to get home so I lasted about three hours of debating with myself whether to go ahead with the prank or not. In the end I decided I would go for it, so here's what I did.

I found a service area on the motorway and pulled in to it then drove over to where the truck parking area was and quickly found a lorry which had the engine idling and the lights on whilst the driver built up air pressure before setting off again. I pulled the car across the front of the lorry so that the passenger side was about 10' in front of it then grabbed SWMBO arm and screamed "AAAAAAAGGHHHHHHHHHHHH!". So there she was jolted into consciousness and the first thing she sees is the front of a massive truck "heading for" us.

We have a saying in the UK that " the air turned blue" meaning that some choice language was being deployed, this was more ultraviolet..... But at least I had company for the final hour of the journey to help me stay alert!

That is pure genius. I wish my wife could sleep during car rides.

I did this once. Friggin hilarious and worth every minute I spent on the couch (and the subsequent bruised arm). The dutch oven was a close second but that time she was the one that slept on the couch. Both of those were early in the marriage. No way I could get away with either now. I often wonder what happened to her since of humor.

I've considered this in one form or another many times as we (I) do a lot of long drives.

I like this thread. It gives me ideas.
