Wife's Dying Wish To Husband Ends Up Being A Hilarious Practical Joke

When Phedre Nicol was battling cancer in 2013 at the age of 69, she gave her husband, Nigel, strict instructions should she pass away. Those instructions? Keep watering the plants in their South Africa home. 

And when Phedre lost her battle in the same year, Nigel, now 73, started keeping that promise. And he’s been watering the ferns in their bathroom for years. Though he probably did wonder why there were puddles of water on the floor every time he watered them. 

Fast forward to 2018, and Nigel is moving into a retirement home. The ferns were still in such good shape, that he decided to pack them along with his belongings. Only then did he realize that how wife has been playing a prank on him this entire time. 

Daughter Antonia, a firefighter from London, explained the prank on Twitter…

Yes, Phedre has had Nigel watering plastic for a few years. Antonia explained to The Mirror that no one else was in on the prank…

Antonia explains that her father was so “overcome with grief,” he religiously watered the plants. The couple had apparently always been pranksters…

She goes on to explain what the discovery meant for her father…

And the reaction it got from social media was even more heartwarming. 

Nigel even reenacted the watering of the ferns for his new fans…

To say this is peak relationship goals is an understatement…
