Frightful Grant

Grant startles easily when he is deep in thought. I literally just have to be present in my own home and he will get a fright - it's like he's forgotten he has a family and is shocked that there is someone else in the house!

Sometimes I set out to give him frights. We had been married a short while and one day I startled him while he was at the mirror. He later said, "Thanks for giving me a fright while I was looking in the mirror, because now I know why you do it!" He is funny when he startles - he even found himself amusing.

BUT this little video is made up of regular, I-was-just-standing-there scares. I didn't jump out at him, or put on any scary masks, or shout BOO or anything, I was just there! And before you go thinking I'm so mean, it was his idea for me to film his frights. So have a laugh on Grant - and thanks, babe, for being such a good sport!

(P.S. Di, you know this one's for you!)

  14. Would love to see your video but have to get into Youtube in a roundabout sot of way as it is blocked by our net guardian so the kids can surf safely. Can you give me the direct link or the name of the video?! Have a great day :)

  15. This is fantastic! Love how you "censored" the one clip Hahahahahaha! My hubby would be irritated after I captured him and swat at me (playfully). Grant is a good guy with a nice smile to boot!

  16. That's great! I also startle easily. I know my husband will get a kick out of doing this. Then he'll probably start catching me on video! haha
