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?)
