My daughter was having a birthday party sleepover with a group of her friends. They were in her room with the door closed and I was listening outside the door as they were telling scary stories. When they got to a particularly climatic point, I started banging on the door and all the girls screamed. Success! Unfortunately though, I scared one girl so much that she started crying. I felt horrible after the fact. I didn’t think I would make them cry. They all seemed old enough to be able to take the joke, but unfortunately this particular girl was more sensitive than the others. I still feel horribly guilty to this day about that.
