Only in my family, is this considered normal.

I guess I should give a little background info, so you can understand why my main story is "normal" when it comes to my family. My (step)dad has always loved to play tricks on us growing up, and still to this day. There are too many to list, but his favorite was the the potato hide.

What, you never showed up to school with a random potato in your backpack? The first time I found a potato in my backpack I just left it in the bottom of my bag and went about my day, knowing my dad was loving the fact that I didn't notice it before I left the house. This continued randomly throughout gradeschool.

The other week we went out to dinner with my parents. I was giving my dad a hard time because he was taking his extra cracker packages home with him. I mean, come on, how could I NOT make fun of him for doing so? I mean, he was acting like an old person that hoards the extra food from restaurants.

So, I wasn't surprised when the next day I noticed my purse felt heavier than normal and I found a potato & some cracker packages in the side pouch. Since this is already so long, I'll leave the rest, and the main reason for my post, to another day.
