oh, swim.

allow me to entertain you with a hilarious practical joke that my little rachel just reminded me that i played on her:

[ the scene ]
Rachel, Heather, and everyone pictured above are laying on their towels at a swim meet, watching and waiting for their next event. Rachel is laying down with her eyes closed, cap off, jacket on, waiting for the 50 Freestyle, Heat 7, in which she is supposed to be racing. I devise a little plan in my head, and whisper it to some other people so that they know to play along. Ready...go.

Heather: Wait...Rachel...you're heat 7 for the 50 free, right?

Rachel: (eyes still closed) Yeah...

Heather: ....IT'S GOING RIGHT NOW! HURRY! THEY'RE ABOUT TO START!

Rachel: (eyes shoot open) WHAT! HEAT 7?

Heather: YEAH!

Rachel: (she frantically whips off her jacket) SOMEBODY CAP ME! (someone puts her cap on for her) OH MY GOSH! (she sprints over to the blocks)

Announcer: Swimmers, take your marks for the 100 breaststroke.

Rachel: (looks back at all of us who are laughing) WHAT! (she knows what's up) YOU GUYS SUCK! (she walks back, ashamed, and throws her cap on the ground and yells at us, humiliated.)

oh my. oh my oh my. funniest trick i have ever played on a human.
LYLAS rachel.

and i think you should go more into detail how i whipped my jacket off. cause that was the peak of my delusional state therefore the climax of the joke.
