In honor of April Fools Day, I thought I would reflect on some good pranks either pulled off by me or pulled on me. I think my warped sense of humor comes directly and honestly by my mother and her family. One of the earliest jokes I remember playing was probably at the age of 9. I got one of my mother's old purses and tied fishing line to the handle of the purse. I laid the purse in the street, then I took the other end of the line that was a fishing rod, "cast it" so it would unroll as I walked back to a bunch on nearby bushes. They were very thick and tall. Soon enough a car would drive down the street and slow when it saw a ladies purse lying in the road. Each time, someone would get out to retrieve the purse, I began to reel in my line, and with it the purse. I recall many hours of laughter in such a small prank.
(Ok, tired and going to bed...will add on in the morning when I can type better.)
