Another thing I do is jab on her when she's watching her favorite 'ghost-hunting' shows on TV. When the people ask---"Is there anyone in here that wants to speak to us?"---I respond in my best Star Wars 'Emperor Palpatine' voice---"NO!''
Sometimes, I'll send my wife funny pictures in the middle of the day or try my best to imitate funny voices we hear while watching TV shows. Whatever I do just kind of comes to me in the moment and I have to wait a few seconds to see if it's going to be funny or annoying! lol
I used to remove and hide the belts from my wife's dressing gowns, so they kept flying open when she walked
For ten years I got away with it, and enjoyed the frequent flashing, until one day she said something about them always falling off and going missing. I couldn't stop laughing and eventually had to admit my sneakiness.
I guess that's more something I do for me though, than for her... I do leave her funny and/or loving messages in odd places. Like stuck to the bottom of a cup or in the middle of a diary. Sometimes it takes months before she finds them. Or change the screensaver on her laptop to something usually a tad rude.
Oh, and I occasionally leave a plush rabbit that I have somewhere, like just inside her wardrobe looking out when she opens the door. The rabbit looks totally demented and she hates it. It's even sneaked away on a few holidays with us, just to torment her. She once sent me a picture, while I was working, of the rabbit looking out of a pot of boiling water on the stove! It's been thrown out of the window a few times, and once even out of the car window in the middle of a busy junction (I had hidden it in the glove box). I had to rescue the poor thing from the traffic!
We often play Pirate Flux with Alestorm playing in the background, and she gets to play for a ten minute tickle if she wins best out of 11 rounds. Why 11? Because that's how many fancy coins we have to use as counters. She's not been able to play for a while though; been too ill for the last year. So she has to have free tickles.
Pirata uiue: uiue ut uiuas, furor in proelio, fortitudo in morte
This just gave me some really good ideas. Gotta get a pad of sticky-notes.
On track of my original post----my wife and I play trivia that we just think up in our heads. We take turns asking each other questions in various categories----movies, history, food and drink, etc. It usually winds up ending in a lot of laughs. Mostly her laughing because I'm stupid.------
Late 2018, I searched through Etsy and found some vendors that made personalized wine labels. The kind people have printed for special parties and weddings. I had them make 2 up with my wife's picture on them and the caption "Have you seen this girl ?" like you'd see on the old milk cartons. I stuck one on the wine bottle she had in the refrigerator.
