DAILY PROMPT


Fool Me Once


It’s April 1st!

Pull a fast one — publish a post that gently pranks your readers.


I don’t recall that I have ever been a great advocate of the April Fool’s Day pranks. That does not mean I did not sometimes pull horrid tricks on my friends in an earlier life. (I have grown out of that reprehensible phase- mostly.)

Here are some of the prank that I remembered:

PRANKS I REMEMBER FROM GRADE SCHOOL

  • “Hey, your shoes untied.”
  • “Did you know your shirt (or pants) has a hole in the back?”
  • Taping a sign on a kid that says, “Kick Me, Please.”
  • Putting shaving cream on my bunkmates hand and then awakening him.

PRANKS I REMEMBER FROM JUNIOR HIGH

  • Setting the alarm clock one hour early.
  • Setting four different alarm clocks and hiding them all over a bedroom.
  • Putting salt on a toothbrush.

MY ALL-TIME FAVORITE

  • Supergluing a coin to the cafeteria floor before school starts and then watch the fools. (I might still do this one?)

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Fool Me Once.”

  1. We did sometimes reset clocks, turned out lights, and crept out into the hall to trick sleeping students. My favorite, though, was smiling as I gazed at a sleeping macho student, then when the whole class was paying attention, quietly saying, “My mother was right. They are all angels when they’re asleep.” Huge laugh and very puzzled now-awake student.
