April Fools Day

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.)

You are so creative! I wish I'd had such a creative mind! The best I could do was loosen the salt and pepper shaker lids! And Dad didn't think it was funny!

Happy April Fools Day!!!! =)

My co-workers and mom got me good this morning! It's a long story but it had to do with my brother going to propose to his ex-girlfriend!! My mom called to tell me he went off the deep end and bought her a HUGE ring and he is going to ask her to marry him! They just split up and she dumped him...she is going back to her RICH ex-boyfriend! I was about to call and FLIP OUT on my brother!!!

Thanks for the WONDERFUL& SWEET comment!!! I think it's like the L-O-N-G-E-S-T I've ever received =)

I wished we lived closer too! I would SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO go workout with you! Your Belly dancing sounds WILD & FUN!!!! =)

Trickie- Missed ya! I cannot wait to hear what you did to your kids.

Abbey- a warped sense of humor runs in the family. That example is quite tame. That is funny about the S&P. I rememebr kids doing that at lunch in school.

J-Boy! They DID get you! That is really funny! I am honored about the post. To bad your not closer.

Mrs. Jules- you haven't posted on your blog in awhile. I have missed you too. Must be busy with work, which is good! THX!
