Two years ago a grandmother came to the airport to meet her arriving grandchildren in Southern California – arrived dressed as a dinosaur. Her six year old grandson ran. He was bite-sized for a Tyrannosaurus Rex, after all.
A video shows his brother Ethan running away from the tyrannosaurus rex too. They stop fleeing from the person in the costume when they start recognizing her roar. “I didn’t know who it was,” Owen says. “But then I saw her face and knew it was my grandma!”
The kids lied in wait. Revenge, after all, is best served cold. They plotted to dress up as dinosaurs themselves and went to meet their grandmother when she flew up to Victoria, British Columbia. They “practised their roars” and when the day came they got into costume.
Moments passed after their grandmother’s flight arrived. And finally the sliding doors open. And the plot is foiled:

There the grandmother was “holding a suitcase and a coffee in a T-Rex outfit” says the young boy, “the exact same one she scared me with two years ago!” The kids weren’t scared this time, and the grandmother was proud because “it runs in the family!”
