So, here is the story. My roommates and I, again, were very bored on a friday night. What we decided to do was go around and look in different apartments windows and see if their was something that we could steal and hold for ransom. As we were wandering, we saw a big trophy in a boys apartment, so we thought that that would be good.
I would just like to point out that when we knocked on their door, they were having some kind of guys night, with their mattress on the floor, smoothie making, and movies. So we felt weird intruding. But we quickly realized that we would not be able to get that trophy out of their apartment without them knowing - thats when we saw a fish on the table.
What was so crazy was that they kept giving us things, like cake and smoothies, so we felt a little odd stealing their fish. Caitie was the one that was able to get the fish out of the apartment unnoticed. Then we got home and found a bunch of magazines and newspapers and ads so we could cut out letters to make words for our ransom note. It said "If you ever want to see your fish again, you must meet our demands. 2 #2 pencils, unsharpened, 1 glass of orange juice, 1 tube of used chapstick (preferrably Jared Smart's). meet us at smith park under the gazeebo at 7:30 pm Saturday October 25, 2008 come alone (all of you) wear bright ties - anonymus.
haha, it took forever to find all the letters, but when we did, we couldnt wait until morning to put it on their door, so we put it on their door right after we finished it (I was really stealth as I fell up the stairs).
We fell asleep peacefully but then when we woke up we found out that they knew it was us. Which we figured that they would, but we were hopeing that they would play along with us. So this guy Dan comes over and asks us if we took the fish, to which we replied no (it was obvious how bad of liars we are). When he realized we werent going to admit it, he asked us how we think he should contact the kidnappers, and we said he should write them a letter in a place they would see it. 10 minutes later we see that he is out in the parking lot writing a big chalk letter in the parking lot. (oh! and earlier he said that his roommates wouldnt be able to make it at 7:30, so I called him, disguising my voice, and tried to set up a new time, but he said they were all busy that day - so I agreed that we would just give it back to him in 10 minutes). The letter read "Dear Fish Theives, We will not meet your demands, Jared's chapstick is too valuable to be used on your sinning lips. If you want a kiss just ask Jared to give you one. He is a nice boy, I am sure he will comply. We will meet you in the backyard in 5 minutes."
Well we decided that he underestimated us, so I called him back and said that we read his mocking letter, so we were postponing exchange until monday at 5pm.
We kept looking outside though, cause people kept walking by the letter and laughing, then Dan came out again and added to the letter. First it said "p.s. this is not a matter requiring police, leave them out of it." to which we were grateful, cause some people here can get a little twitchy. But then he added "Boys feel free to call - (my number) - Stacey wants a date with you, yes YOU!" I was laughing so hard at that.
anyways, it was really funny! They just got their fish back today, we bought them pizza to thank them for playing. The last picture is Jaime, Caitie, Shandra and Me (holding the knife).
