I don't think I can honestly complete this prompt. I thought about making up some fabricated story for you guys, and then "SIKE!"ing you guys at the end, but it would have been such apparent bullshit.
Basically, I'm not very exciting. I don't have kids to surprise, money to buy grandiose gifts, people to propose to, or pregnancies to announce. I don't play pranks or scare people because that would take too much energy, and I would prematurely start laughing. Even when I have exciting news, it comes out in this stoner'esque way totally killing the vibe. I've never super surprised anyone, had shocking news, or delivered it in a way that would "make a look on your face." I suck at keeping secrets, too.
One time my mom found out I had my nipples pierced, and the look on her face totally did NOT "make it worth it." Or, when I packed up all my shit in my college dorm room and showed up at my parents saying, "Nope, I can't do it. Not going back."; the looks on their faces was not "worth it" then, either. Then, there's that one time I surprised my mom with a phone call, "Mom, I totaled the Volvo...and I'm just up the street." The look on her face was not "worth it" then, either.
Seems like I've done more bad shocking things than good. Sorry for being a booger, folks.
Actually, every time I theatrically retell my college shit-my-pants story to my folks after a few glasses of wine, I realize it was "worth it" to suffer through my embarrassment for the their smiles, laughs, and belly grabs. I never mind sacrificing my pride to make a jolly moment for them or others ;-)
Never trust the "hold it,"
