Alright, because I'm bored and sleepy at work...

Post the most creative way you've ever used to wake a person up.

Bearing in mind, of course, that this is a FAMILY forum.

I can't tell you the most creative. [Big Grin] But I have done some pretty mean things to my husband, and my brother before him...

Mean is good, too. [Big Grin]

Anything to keep me from dozing off at the terminal.

I stayed with a friend this weekend who has a 14-month-old baby. I asked her if the little girl ever managed to wake her up, since she was the quietest child I'd ever been around.

"Oh yes," the Mom explained. "She won't do it vocally, but has other ways of getting me to wake up. The other day, she had crawled into my bed and I awoke with the strange sensation of an icy little finger in my butt crack."

My two year old likes to wake me up by crawling into bed with me, sticking his finger up my nose and declaring, "You have boogers!"

When I was a kid, as a practical joke I set my clock for 3 AM and hid it under my gram's bed.

Mmmm, the meanest is to pinch his nose closed and then cover his mouth. When he starts choking trying to draw in air, I let go and he wakes up. [Evil Laugh] I only do that after several attempts have failed and he's going to be late for something, though. Then, one time I just dropped (not literally) the baby on his chest and let her stick her fingers into his mouth, nose, and eyes and pull his hair; but he didn't wake, so she got frustrated, slapped his cheeks a few times, and when that didn't work, put her face right next to his and yelled. [ROFL] That got him. (I have to say, though, it was very cute that even in his sleep, she started to slip off his chest and he wrapped his arm around her protectively to keep her from falling. Awww!)

Oh, and when I was little, I used to run into my dad's room, take a flying leap, and land on his chest. Muahahahaha!

My wife tells me that staying up late to watch TV while she goes to bed, then finally coming to bed in the dark, plopping heavily onto the bed, tugging on the blankets, tossing and turning until I'm comfortable, all while groaning and coughing, is a highly effective way to wake her up.

I also like to wake up my teenage sister by letting the cat sit on her and bat at her eyelids.

I think I've decided I'm never rooming with KQ again.

[Angst]

UofU, oddly enough, that method works for my husband for waking me up, as well.

Megan, I didn't do anything to you! I only do these things to people whom I need to get back at for something. [Evil]

My friend once woke up his little brother by carefully placing his stereo speakers on either side of his head, placing the record needle on "The 1812 Overture," cranking the volume to high, and getting out of the house before it started.

Heh. That reminds me of the time my roommate asked me specifically to wake her up before 8:00.

Unbeknownst to her, I had just acquired a copy of the Oklahoma! sound track and there was, coincidentally, a bright golden haze on the meadow that morning...

Hehe.. one of the best was when I was at college. Me and a few others snuck up on a sleepy frat Brother... beat him with "boffs", swords made of PVC pipe and foam, tied him up with duck tape and left him in front of the hall director's door.

[eep! Thanks Trev!]

KQ, you didn't do it at WenchCon cause you didn't know me that well. I'm afraid of your scary waking up capabilities, though!

Bernard is so durn cute waking up, I don't have the heart to be mean... Yet.

I did once jump on Adriann's bed and yell 'fire' when she wouldn't get up for school.

I also had a friend who was particularly evil, tied his brother's feet to his bedposts and put a flame to the fire alarm.

airhorn... indoors... from about 6 feet away... I was 15, my brother was 11 and was refusing to get up for something the whole family was going to do together. I'd accidentally brought the airhorn home from football practice the day before (we used it to signal the end of a drill period), and I was frustrated that he was holding everyone up, so I blasted him.
