Horseradish, Lemons, & Lemondade

I did it! I pulled the prank! I couldn't find the wasabi, so I used horseradish instead. While my DH was in the shower I pranced out to the kitchen giggling in anticipation, got the horseradish, and dabbed a little into his mouthguard. I carefully placed it back on his nightstand and then proceeded to get ready for bed as usual.

We both climbed into bed, prayed, chatted a little...and I waited for DH to put his mouthguard in. Occasionally he forgets to wear it, so I was sooo tempted to try to casually say, "Oh, don't forget your mouthguard." But I thought that would draw too much attention to it so I kept waiting. I turned out the light and rolled over. I waited. Finally I could sense he was reaching for it. I rolled over to face him more to see his reaction...

AND BURST OUT LAUGHING! That uncontrollable laughter that makes your eyes water. Yeah. It was so fun even before he put it in his mouth! I tried to explain away my laughter as something I had been thinking about, but 1. It was too hard to come up with something that fast, and 2. I could barely talk I was laughing so hard.

DH got suspicious. He had just put the mouthguard in. He asked if I did something to it. I kept laughing. He tasted something funny. He got a little mad and took it out. I kept laughing. He asked what it was and I managed to gasp, "Horseradish." He proceeded to rinse out his mouthguard, brush his teeth, and floss. I kept laughing. After a moment he said that although he was annoyed he had to do all those things again, he thought it was kinda funny too. And that I was cute for laughing before the prank actually happened. :)

He climbed back into bed and gave me a big hug. He also threatened to retaliate, and he said he won't wait until next April Fool's. It was fun.
