Do you believe in Karma?
Think of an array of giant dominos in front of you; you push one and it falls into the next one, then, after a while, a giant domino behind you hits you on the back of your head!
The dominos traveled in a giant circle and voila!
I should have known it would happen when one April Fools day when our two were about 4 and I explained to one of them (I know which one, but the statue of limitations has not yet expired), what April Fools day was.
He wanted to participate so I whispered to him to go up to his mother, who was still in her panties & a sleep shirt, and what to say.
“Mom, your panties have a hole in them!” he said.
“What! Where!” she asked, looking frantically.
“April Fool!’ he giggled.
We got her! She never suspected that her innocent son was a prankster.
Fast forward to when he came to live with me prior to going off to college.
I come in one day after work and turn on the faucet to the kitchen sink.
I immediately get sprayed in the face!
He had scotch-taped the sprayer to “on” and aimed it directly to where he knew I would be standing.
It took me exactly 1 nanosecond to know what had happened, how it happened and who was the culprit!
Yep, same child.
Karma had finally caught up with me, all those years later.
