When I was dating my wife I was having to deal with a little bit of a sullen little boy. His brother was had no issue, with me, but boy, he may me work to get even a smile from him.
One day I realized he was fascinated by a simple magic trick we saw in a store. Well, the next time I came over, I had a whole suitcase of my pranks and magic tricks, and each time I was with him. I brought one out to show him. This continued for quite a while, and eventually we grew much closer.
He is now over 20 and living away from us, and I have been married to his mother for almost 18 years.
This is the power of Jokes and Pranks! They turn can someone's frown upside-down! Now, I'm not saying if you put a "Kick Me" sign on their back that they will fall madly in love with you, but a bond of shared jokes and pranks can build a lasting connection.
This is this if the power of the prank. It can turn someone's frown upside-down!
Have a Pranky Day!
