#Microblog Mondays 179: The Traveling Picture

Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is? Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too.


ChickieNob was telling Josh about WellieWishers, and he said they sounded horrifying.  So she drew him his very own WellieWisher and slipped it under his blankets so he saw it when he got into bed that night.

Well played, little girl.

Wellie Wisher

He transferred the picture to her room, and the creepy doll picture traveled back and forth between them until I somehow got roped into this when I found it in my underwear drawer.  The only person who refuses to play is the Wolvog, who respectfully removed the WellieWisher from the bathroom so he could brush his teeth in peace.

A simple prank.  Not as good as the ultimate prankThat was a long joke, considering the set up was in 2013.

Tell me another good prank.

Ha ha! That would have spooked me too. A fun prank between them 😉

Does this qualify as a toy that freaks people out? Because if yes, very well played ChickieNob. And now I have the willies.

When I was a pledge for Alpha Phi Omega (a Co-ed service fraternity) it was our job to do a pledge prank. The year before was a disgusting prank that I won’t even repeat, so we wanted to do funny. What we did was rent a helium tank and fill the office (where we hung out) with balloons some filled with helium, some with our own hot air. It was great.

My husband’s family loves pranks. They are always messing with their grandma (who is a great sport) by putting fake mice in random places in her house (fridge, bed, closet, clothes dryer, etc) and scaring her terribly. I’m waiting for the day she gets them all back. I don’t participate because I’m a horrible sport and also cry if I get very scared so I just stay in my own little corner. 😛

A friend hid a giant picture of a moustache somewhere in a cupboard of their house when they moved out and sold it… he had dreams that the new owners would one day chuckle about finding ‘the secret ‘stache”

This is adorable! I’m so lame at pranks.

7 Jess { 01.29.18 at 8:25 pm }

Okay, I don’t get the WellieWishers (and $60 for a friendship thingie? Yipes!) but ChickieNob did a bang-up job drawing that one! And yeah, that could be real creepy. I love the thought of the Wolvog brushing his teeth and being like, “Um, no Welliewisher, not today.”
I am terrible with pranks. Bryce likes to sneak up on me and scare me, but I don’t think that qualifies. When I was little I left death threats from Dracula under my sister’s pillow, but they were on sunshine rainbow paper so when I (clearly) got caught I rationalized that clearly it was a joke because Dracula wouldn’t use the sun on his stationary, DUH. I think I peaked at 9.

Okay, so this is the first I’ve heard of Wellie Wishers. Are they basically American Girls lite? They don’t seem horrifying, but, then, I didn’t find one in my underwear drawer.

9 Mali { 01.29.18 at 11:23 pm }

That’s cute! I’ve never embraced pranks, I’m afraid.

10 Amber { 01.30.18 at 1:17 am }

I’ve never heard of WellieWishers before, but I think it sounds like a fun little prank. I also love that the Wolvog refused to play. That’s pretty funny all by itself!

11 Suzy { 01.30.18 at 4:19 am }

That would have spooked me too. It is pretty creepy but well drawn.

12 Middle Girl { 01.30.18 at 10:31 pm }


I am not a prankster.
