Barbara Bush: another real-live prankster. I've posted this one countless times, but here it is again.
In Houston, filming "Tin Cup" with Kevin Costner and Don Johnson (a couple of real heart throbs at the time). These two heart throbs are having lunch with the ex-president and Mrs. Bush in their gated community. Mrs. Bush, with a twinkle in her eye and a bit of onery in her soul, sends Costner and Johnson next door with an empty cup to ask Mrs. "Smith" for a cup of sugar. Meanwhile, Mrs. Bush, wife of one president, mama of a Texas governor and future Florida governor...and future mama of a president, hides in the bushes so she can see the look on Mrs. Smith's face when she opens the door to Kevin Costner and Don Johnson. If I'd been Mrs. Smith, I probably would have fainted on the spot.
A true story.
