I love and adore April Fool’s Day. Every year that I was a teacher, I would begin April 1 by removing all the chairs from my classroom. When I told the kids they’d have to stand all day, I was always surprised how gullible six-and seven-year-olds can be. When I got promoted to the position of a school administrator, my teachers weren’t quite so easily duped — except for the year that I put a sign on the copier. The sign said that the copy machine company had installed a ‘voice activation’ setting, and all that people had to do was give oral commands. You can imagine how funny it was to watch! (Right, Shanne?!)
This year, I’m excited that Easter and April Fool’s Day coincide. Since I’ll have my family over for Easter, they will be unsuspecting recipients of my warped sense of humor. Here are a few of my intended pranks.
I’m making a special cake for each of my grandchildren. They’ll love sponge cake, don’t you think?
The grandkids will also get a special drink, which is really congealed cherry Jello.
All three of my bathrooms will have this sign posted on the door.
and end up with a box of veggies with Ranch dip. (Ok, I know the picture is incomplete, but I’m not serving this until tomorrow.
I still have 24 hours or so to come up with a few more pranks. Dan the Man just rolls his eyes at my glee You must promise though, if you’re coming over to my house tomorrow and you’re you’ve read this post, you won’t give my secrets away!!!
