My husband played this joke on me a while back, and it still cracks me up to think about it.
One evening after the kids were in bed, I was telling him some detailed account of something that had happened that day (which I am SURE he was completely mesmerized by). The conversation went something like this:
Me: Blah blah blah. Blah didah dah. So what do you think
I should do?
Him: (thoughtfully) Hmmmm….. sounds like a case of updog to
Him: Yep, I’m sure of it. Sounds like updog.
Me: What’s “updog”?
Him: Not much. What’s up with you, DAWG!!!!
OK, I know I’m in my forties, and I should be way more mature than this, but I laughed my head off. Then, we did it to our kids the next day. Great fun!
The trick is waiting for the perfect opportunity to get the other person to ask, “What’s updog?”
