My mother told me a story about a time I played a prank on her. I was 3 years old. She took me out shopping. While she was browsing some clothes, I disappeared. She was devastated. She looked for me everywhere and had the store broadcast my name. It might have been a couple of hours of searching in vain until she noticed a pair of tiny feet underneath a giant coat on a mannequin - I was hiding inside the coat the whole time, sweating and giggling. It was funny for me but a nightmare for my mom.
