#2-Short-sheeting

Why Short-Sheeting Is So Cool

In my book I described a prank Kevin pulled on me:

That night Kevin short-sheeted me. That’s where  someone unhooks your top sheet from the bottom of the bed, folds it up to the top end, and tucks in the sides so when you slide in, your legs hit the fold half-way down and can’t go anywhere.

Short-sheeting is a very old, very cool prank.

 

How to Short-Sheet a Bed.
(Georgie drew the pictures.)

1. Make sure no one is watching.

2. Memorize what the bed looks like before you mess with it.

3. Take off the pillows, the covers and blankets, and the top sheet.

4. Tuck the top sheet in at the top of the bed so it looks like a bottom sheet.

4. Tuck the top sheet in at the top of the bed so it looks like a bottom sheet. Fold the top sheet up halfway down the bed so its loose bottom of the sheet ends up exactly where the top sheet was before you started the trick. In other words, the top sheet looks like both the bottom sheet and the top sheet.

5. Remake the bed (covers, blankets, pillows, etc.) to look just like it was when you started.

 

6. Hide somewhere and watch if you can.

Comments from my Readers & Friends

  1. i tried it with my mom and i got grounded! then i tried it with my friend she still thinks her sister did it haha i probably should tell her tommorow. my phone got taken away by my mom i tried it on my brother.

  2. I tried this on my mom, but because it was summer she did not want to get under all the blankets and sheets, so I had to tell her about the short-sheeting

  3. Sorry about your finger Georgie and thank you Cheesie for putting this up. I will definitely use this at my camping trip soon

  4. the reason it works guys, is that when you get into bed you try to get under the top sheet but above the bottom sheet. so when you get short sheeted, you cant stretch out all the way because the shorted sheet is halfway up the bed.

  5. AWesome prank. tried it with a top sheet…WORKS! bottom sheet…DOESNT WORK for some reason. again, cheesie, thank kevin for doing this to you or else i never would have known.

    • I remember that from Cheesie Mack is Running Like Crazy! How is being co-president? Does Oddny LIKE-like you or vice versa?
