April Fool's Day can sometimes be fun. I loved the year when I tricked Mike to be believe we had a leak under the kitchen sink. He had just repaired a leak about a week before. Mike dislikes working on the plumbing, but won't call a plumber. I knew he would NOT be happy with another leak. When he came home on April Fools Day, I told him that we had yet another leak. He didn't believe me at first, until I told him come look. I had conveniently placed a bucket under the sink and filled it with water. I am not sure how I managed not to giggle. The water in the bucket convinced him totally. It was so fun to tell him, "Got Ya!"
Sometimes, however April Fools jokes can go a little wrong and backfire. Like the time that I helped to trick Katie's high school track coach. Katie is known for, shall we say, injuring herself rather frequently. (She will deny it, you wait and see.) So it didn't seem to far fetched that she could be hurt. April Fools Day happened to be the same day as a track meet. Katie went to school uninjured but with her arm in a sling!! At first, Coach Tucker thought she was just kidding, until she provided a note from her mom. I can't believe I did that. It's one thing to trick a member of your family, and something totally different to trick a coach. Anyway, Coach Tucker ended up scratching Katie from the race before she could tell him, "APRIL FOOL'S!!". OOPS!! That was not a good thing. It did get worked out before the end of the day and she did get to race. At awards night Coach Tucker had to share the whole incident with everyone. Oh, my, I felt like crawling under the table!!
So what are your plans for this April Fool's Day??
