How to Short-Sheet a Bed

  • First, select the bed to short-sheet.
This one is too carefully arranged. She would notice if one item were out of place.

This one is too high to reach, and because it wasn't even made in the first place, the intended victim would know something was up.

This one is perfect. Sort of made, sort of messy - and the owner isn't likely to notice anything suspicious.

  • Next, remove all the coverings but leave the bottom fitted sheet. Lay out the blanket with the top sheet face up on top of it.
  • Tuck the top of the blanket and sheet firmly under the top of the mattress.
  • Fold the bottom of the blanket/sheet up so it looks like it would if the bed were made the right way. This creates the "pocket."
  • Rearrange the coverings as they were before. Enjoy the fun when the drowsy bed owner tries to crawl between his sheets and discovers he's trapped. Break up the fights when he blames his sisters.

Happy April Fool's Day!

I washed my son's sheets yesterday so I could short-sheet it when remaking. Sadly, I did it wrong and he isn't noticing (or else he curls up way more than I realize!). Should have read this first!
