April Fools' Day

I started off my day wondering if someone was going to try and pull a fast one on me on this stupid day.

I really can't remember the last time someone played an April fools' joke on me. I'm sure it was nothing since I've been an adult. And the last time I remember doing it to someone else was my freshman year in college when we played a joke on my friend's boyfriend.

It was around 4:30 p.m. when I called one of my friends and she started telling me that her boyfriend dumped her. I know...pretty weak. She couldn't even explain to me why he did. But I had just left an assignment, my mind was elsewhere and I had forgotten what day it was, so I fell for it.

"April fools!"

Ugh. I hate this day. But my friend seemed pretty amused as she told me of some of the other tricks she pulled.

I guess I should consider myself pretty lucky. That was the extent of my April Fools' Day.

Check out what Wikipedia has to say about April Fools' Day and let me know what pranks, if any, you played...or had played on you.

My apartment super lives downstairs, and I told him I had completely burned my kitchen during a stove fire. I led him on for a few minutes, and he was getting really peeved at all the work he was going to have to do. Then I popped the April Fools, and he broke down laughing.

April Fools' is such a mean holiday...
