Well well, it’s time again for my least favorite holiday of them all. April Fools Day. While I welcome our new springtime overlords (birds) and am excited to switch over my wall calendars, I dread April Fools Day. Sorry I’m trusting, jerks! Sorry I live my life assuming that the people I have chosen to surround myself with are not going to lie to my face just for a couple of chuckles!
So, let’s all just agree that this is a safe space. No April Fools pranks or gags. We are not fools! We are competent adults!
Let’s also all share here a time we were pranked, and then follow it up with an accurate representation of the stone face the prankers were met with.
Here’s mine: On my 19th birthday, my roommates went to fencing class (cool) and they returned very early and said they’d been dismissed because Katie stabbed the teacher. He had to go to the hospital and there was blood everywhere. Katie was crying! They kept this prank up–all of them–for upwards of 30 minutes, delaying a celebratory birthday trip to the cafeteria. It ended up that they just got dismissed early because not enough people showed up.
I guess I haven’t been pranked too hard, but DON’T TEST ME.
