When I was a little girl, I always was the first one to participate to play tricks on adults.
One of my favorite was to attach a string to an empty wallet, covered the string with sand hid behind a little wall and waited until somebody came to pick it up and then I would pull the wallet away. Of course I was not alone. The people got mostly very angry and rant, while we were running away laughing !
We had an old lady living in the building where we lived, she hated kids and therefore was the ideal victim for us. One little boy had heard that cats are attracted by Valerian so we emptied a whole bottle under her window and all cats of the neighborhood came and meowed and fought making a terrible noise. Don't ask me from whom he had got the bottle.
We also loved to ring on all doorbells usually there were 6 or 8 and ran away.
At school it was not better. I didn't like my English teacher and had the good idea to put the school skeleton in her closet where she used to hang up her coat. What fun we had when she opened the door and the skeleton fell in her arms and she screamed !
I have to say that in the 50th adults were not very children friendly and we took our revenge !
