Relationship Surprise

My girlfriend will sometimes hide behind a door in our darkened bedroom and then jump out and yell in my face when I enter the room. When I jump back in surprise she acts like it's some kind of triumph for her, but the fact is that if someone doesn't react in surprise from someone jumping at them in a darkened room, it's because they've died of fright. It's human nature to jump back when someone leaps at you, especially when you think you're walking into your bedroom and fumbling for the light switch. If I ever jump out and try to scare her and she stands stoically, unsurprised, then I'll know she's either a robot or an alien, and I'm sure our relationship will take a hard left turn.
