Only two come to mind. Our mom was deathly scared of snakes. We lived in an old farm house and dad had built a new low deck on the backside of the house off the kitchen. It was probably 12x12 and about a foot off the ground. The door to the kitchen consisted of an old screen door and a solid inside door. My sister and I were out in the field the day before and my dad had killed a three foot long bull snake and left it lay at the edge of the field. Of course having nothing better to do that next day we were looking for something different do do. Idea! Why don't we go up to the corner and get that dead snake and lay it off the porch and call Mom out to see it. So we gets the snake and comes back and lays it about a foot away from the corner of the deck on the ground. "HEY MOM. COME OUTSIDE AND SEE WHAT WE GOT!" "what do you kids want, I am busy? "Come out here and see what we got." Of course on the way out Mom shuts the inside door for some reason. She comes walking over to the edge of the deck and started to step off when she notices the snake. She let out a scream I can still hear today and turned around and headed for the door. She couldn't find the handle on the screen door for a few seconds and stood there jumping up and down. Finally she got it open and then couldn't get the inside door open. Meanwhile my sister and I were rolling around on the ground laughing. We didn't get in trouble for it, but the more we thought about it, we decided it wasn't all that funny and shouldn't have done it. After Mom calmed down she laughed about it too. The other one happened years later when my sister was going with my now brother in law. He had an old Dodge car that had the shift lever for the automatic transmission on the dash right above the transmission hump. That was the days when the guy opened the drivers door and the girl slid in and across the seat. They were going somewhere and took me along down three miles to my aunt's store and was going to drop me off there. Must have been around the end of June because my cousin who is the same age as me was selling fireworks at the store. My sister and boyfriend went into the store to visit my aunt and I went around behind the fireworks stand where my cousin was. He had found a small garter snake and skinned it and was sewing it back up to scare his mother with. We got to talking about it and I said maybe we should put the snake on the seat of the car which was parked right next to the stand and scare my sister. The more we talked the better it sounded. He got done sewing it up, minus the head, and we sneaked out to the passenger side of the car. I took the snake and laid it in the crack between the back and bottom of the seat right over the hump on the floor. We went back in the fireworks stand and sat down. Pretty soon we heard them coming back to the car talking to my aunt. Brother in law opened the driver's door very gallantly and my sister eased around to get in. They kept talking all the time. Finally after what seemed like an eternity my sister came on around and slid into the car. Just about the time she was going to set down she noticed the snake. She screamed and did a one eighty and stuck her rearend up onto the ceiling of the car. She was bouncing up and down screaming at the top of her lungs. Brother in law knew he had to save her, but didn't know from what. Aunt was standing by the left front headlight trying to figure out what was going on. It went on for about two minutes before my sister was able to scream out, "There is a snake." Brother in law tried to come in the car about the time my sister figured out she better back out the door. She finally went over the top of him as he went in looking for the snake. Found it and grabbed it by the tail and threw it out right under the door. About that time they looked thru the car windows and saw me and my cousin screaming with laughter. Then my aunt started laughing. The other two just glared at us. Maybe that is why my brother in law doesn't like me to this day. They left and I walked the three miles back to the house that evening.
