Do any of you get into the whole April Fool's Day Business?
Growing up, there were two classic April Fool's Day jokes that circulated in our family. The first one was that we would spike each other's toothbrushes with baking soda so that our family members would get a nasty taste when they brushed their teeth. The second one, which was clearly way more intricate, was that my Dad would tell us, and as the years progressed, we would tell him, that there was a giant turtle sitting on the front yard. Somehow, this joke got to be a classic in the family and it tends to get brought up in one way or another almost every year. I also remember my mom telling my grandma that either my sister or I were pregnant before we were married. Oh, good times.
Last year, I think I tried to trick the FD by calling him at work and telling him Nika got hit by a car. That's just cruel, I know. But I think I may have had him partially convinced. This year, I have no idea how to try to trick him. The fallback trick, "Guess what honey? I'm pregnant" would not have as a great of effect this year as in past years.
So, perhaps, this year I will have to stick with the good ol' turtle on the front lawn.
