Ain’t No Joke

Ain’t No Joke

We did it!  And by we I mean ‘I,’ and by it, I mean ‘nothing.’  That’s right, I did nothing for April Fool’s day.  Sorry to be so lame, but sheesh, it seems like we just had Easter yesterday. Oh wait, we did.  I need at least two regular days in between special days. My feeble brain just can’t handle it. Bummer, because I love April Fool’s day!

My favorite was one time I put those little firecracker poppers under the toilet seat, and waited for my husband to get up and go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, (he’s a sitter) and when he sat down, the poppers exploded and he thought he had broken the toilet off the wall, and he freaked out and tore the towel rack off the wall trying to save himself.  Ha! Hahahaha!  And one other time I printed up an official looking tarantula infestation warning from our HOA and taped it to the neighbor’s doors, telling them they had to evacuate by 11 pm that night.  That was a good one.

Anyway, tell me your best pranks!  I’d love to hear them.  And no joke here, this nightstand makeover from Barb is outstanding. It was such a plain little piece before, but she dressed it up with a cerusing technique, new hardware and a new door, and now it steals the show.  Check it all out on her blog Turtles and Tails.

    ROFL!! I am in tears and can not breathe because I am laughing so hard! I may have to steal that idea! So, did your husband get your back?

    I have nothing to top that one. Just fake poo in co workers seats and random fliers for ailments in their cubicle. 😉

    Oh…my husband just told me if I ever did that to him, I had better spent a lot of money at Fredericks of Hollywood to make it up. LOL!

    BTW, I do love that makeover. It looks

    The best prank I ever pulled off was convincing most of my friends on facebook & my co-workers at the time that I’d gotten a tattoo by doing some photo editing & wearing a band-aid.
    This year I sent my hubby & best-friend a phone-photo of a positive pregnancy test (our 2nd child just turned 9weeks old today & we aren’t planning to have any more)but they weren’t falling for it. 😉

    Would hate to have you as my next door neighbor 🙂 While I am intrigued by tarantulas I would have freaked to have a notice on my door. That said the best one I pulled was on my son. He was 16 and had his first car, we were living in AZ which has a higher auto theft rate than where we came from. He got up that morning and with a straight face I asked him where he parked his car when he came home. He replied it was where he always parked, I said no it wasn’t there that’s why I asked. He was so freaked he ran out of the apartment in only his boxers to see if his car was gone. When he returned all I had to say was April Fool’s, he told everyone that day what a horrible mother he had.

    What’s not horrible is this nightstand makeover. The before was completely plain and big box looking, but the after…..Wow!

    OMG….that was THE funniest thing I’ve ever read! I tried to relay the information to my husband but was laughing so hysterically that I couldn’t get it all out at one time. Thanks for a good belly laugh!

    Good idea Monica, I even have printable tattoo paper! And there’s still time …

    And livingsimplyfree, that is hysterical. That’s another great idea … heck, I might do this to my husband tonight too, maybe go move his truck while he’s in the shower and then not mention it until like … right before bedtime, when the day is almost over and his guard is down… HAHA! Poor guy.
