Daily Wisdom Word Meaning of Mischievousness-1. having a playful time with others, not being as sensitive to their feelings as one should be.
Mischievousness can sometimes be fun or it can sometimes lead us into trouble. Mischievousness is often seen in children who play pranks and certainly don’t mean any trouble, but get there anyway. I remember when my son was about five years old, and my niece eight years old, and together their personalities always equaled mischievousness.
My sister and I had gone shopping and the babysitter really wasn’t watching the kids as well as she should have been. We came home, and both kids had literally destroyed the basement having fun. They weren’t thinking of the consequences of their actions. My sister and I were furious, and we made the kids clean up the mess. Needless to say, the babysitter wasn’t invited to come back again.
What happens when adults practice with mischievousness? Well, just recently, I decided to practice with it myself. It was the night of my birthday, and I truly didn’t mean any harm. My son had taken us to dinner with his serious girlfriend, and I thought I could push the boundaries a little with both of them since it was my birthday. I asked his girlfriend if my son asked her to marry him, would she marry him? I embarrassed my son and her, both.
I was trying to be funny but at the same time, mischievous. I knew deep inside the question was pushing it too far but all the same, I asked. It is not always children that end up practicing mischievousness. I dabbled in it that night and meaning to be funny, caused everyone to feel uncomfortable. I am usually more careful with boundaries than that, but sometimes, I have to put the brakes on my own sense of humor.
