Hey, it's April Fool's Day. No, we didn't do anything or even really run across anything extra clever for April Fool's Day. We did have some green eggs at church, though. And Jill's Dad did invite us to lunch at Chick-fil-A today. (If you don't get it, they aren't open on Sundays. It is a LONG time running joke with Jill's family. Somehow it is still funny. Kinda like when Eric pretends he is walking up or down stairs while we are skyping with Jill's family. It never gets old. Laughter always seems to fill the room. We are totally okay with that. :)
Anyhow, we thought it would be a fitting time for us to share a fun little prank that you can store in the brain file. Sorry this is a little late for April Fool's, but maybe you could start a new tradition and pull a fun little prank on someone on the last day of April. It will likely throw them off even further.
This prank is a little time consuming but it is super cheap and very entertaining (at least for the folks pulling the prank).
So here's how this prank occurred in our house:
Last year, when Jill returned from one of her business trips she entered an office that looked like this:
Yes, that's right, Eric had wrapped pretty much everything in dollar store aluminum foil.
Everything, meaning each individual pen was wrapped. He stopped wrapping the posters and papers on the wall, as he was afraid to tear them (what a thoughtful guy!).
Jill thought this prank was funny, but only after she explained to Eric that she was not removing a single piece of foil.
It's true that her trophy is still wrapped in foil and sits in our house as a friendly reminder that Eric is awesome.
Jill is really just thankful that he didn't decide to do a jello prank...although it sounds awesome, what a mess that would be!!!
Anyone have any good prank stories or ideas? Any good April Fool's Day happenings? Someone please tell us you had something really funny happen!
