Why I’ll Never Do Another April Fools Day Prank!

This morning at breakfast my husband reminded me that it was April Fools Day. How could it have slipped my mind? My favorite day.

My first thought was……oh no…..I haven’t planned anything. I can’t let the day go by without pulling a prank on somebody. My mind started going like crazy, thinking of all the things I could do to the neighbor, my mother and of course my husband.

April Fools Day has always been one of my favorite days. I’ve pulled pranks on people for years, but last years prank really took the cake when my husband pulled a biggie on me. He made up for all of the pranks I’ve pulled on him over the course of 30 years. It was so out of character for him that I just couldn’t get over it. I wrote about it last year.

After my husbands horrible prank last year, I decided that that would be the end of the road for me and my practical jokes. It’s just too easy for things to go haywire and get out of hand. I don’t want to hurt anyone or cause anyone pain so I made the decision to retire from the joke business. As hard as it is for me to do, I’m done with being a clown.

I just don’t want to take the chance that I might offend someone. I’ve really learned my lesson.

Ha! Ha! Fooled you!

Are you kidding me? I’m not going to give up my pranks, are you serious? Do you want to rob me of my joy?

In fact, I’m going to stop writing this blog right now and call my mother.  I got her good last year when I told her that one of her least favorite people on the planet (there are only two of them) called to tell me that he would be passing through Ohio and was planning on stopping at my mothers for the night. She was not happy with the news at all. I really had her going. We laughed so hard about that one.

Hmmm…….what shall I fool her with today?? She’s eighty eight years old so I’ve got to be gentle.

My husband? He better watch out! When he least expects it….kaboom!

Happy April Fools Day to you!
