April Fools, a day late. Sorry if you were really excited.
April Fool’s Day is one of my most favorite days of the year. I am usually the perpetrator and not the victim. I’m sure that doesn’t surprise you.
My favorite was the the year Ken and I wrote a letter to a friend telling her that her breast implants had been recalled. We went so far as to put the logo of the implant company on the letter (we took a wild guess at who it was and were right) and drove to Denver to mail the letter. We told her that her implants had rat feces in them and would need to be replaced. Mean, I know. She fell for it - hook, line and sinker. She came to my house waving the letter, yelling, “My boobs have been recalled!!! F*ck!” She took it very well after we peed our pants and told her the truth. We are actually still friends. And her boobs still look great.
It is risky to be my friend, child, daughter, sister and wife, but it can be fun.
Yesterday I woke up kind of sick, with lots to do and not much energy. When Ken reminded me if was April Fool’s Day I knew we had to do something to the kids. Ken suggested telling them the dog died. What is wrong with him? I decided to tell them I had just seen a naked man running down the street and he was coming towards our house. They both ran to the window and waited anxiously because who doesn’t want to see a naked man running with his junk flapping in the wind? They waited for a bit until we broke the news. It was a weak attempt at April Fool’s but, it was something.
What’s the best practical joke you’ve played on someone or been the victim of?
BTW, I feel better today, thanks for asking.
A few people have said I look like Teddy on Grey’s Anatomy. I don't watch the show, so I Googled her. What do you think?
I’m not sure I see the resemblance, maybe a bit in the mouth and nose. Do you? I’m the one on the right. You probably knew that already since I don’t have a watch like hers.
