Practical joke

The kiddo and I found this bolt outside our building today. The keys are in the photo just to show you how big it is.

So what do you think would happen if I told the maintenance man that it fell off our toilet? How long should I let him stand there scratching his head before telling him the truth?

No, I won't do it. But it might be really funny.


  1. oh do... maintenance men love a little bathroom humor now and then!

  2. Perhaps it would be even better if you told the maintenance man that you thought it had come from something disproportionally small... like a ceiling light fixture or the door knob. It would be hard to pull off with a straight face, but I think you are just the gal to do it! I’d love to be a fly on the wall for that conversation....

  3. no no
    take it into the car repair shop and say it was laying under the car...

    no ... wait
    ask the guy at the computer store if this is any important item....

  4. whoa! that is really huge...

    i would save it and when making dinner for friends, bust it out and pretend that you're a stepford wife.
