Prank you, Prank me

Happy Monday, friends and no I don’t say that as a April Fools’ Joke. I’m serious. It’s a day for new opportunities and I’m going to hold on to that thought and fight to believe it!

Are you a fan of the April Fools’ Day prank? Have you pulled any?

Personally, I prefer to space my pranks out through the year so they’ll have more of an impact. (Pranks I’ve been involved in: Serving Frank court summons papers for not liking Journey and refusal to “believe”, reconnecting computers that were back to back so the mouse and keyboard of one controlled the other, switching personal items between desks when both were out of town, sending Jalapeno Jelly Belly Beans instead of Apple ones, just to name a few.) But some people take this day like the holy grail of humor and go all out.summonsJPG

So far today I’ve seen divorce announcements, pregnancy announcements, that the Mets are in first place (actually true so far), and meat loaf cupcakes (which I think look tasty!). It’s not even lunch time yet! I can only imagine what the rest of the day will bring. I just hope it’s nothing hurtful or heart stopping. That’s not fun for anyone.

I spend a lot of time on the pool deck and making treats in my kitchen amongst other things.

    I hate practical jokes any day of the year. I don’t play them, won’t participate in them, and see nothing funny about having them played on me. If I’m the subject of a practical joke, I may chuckle politely, and certainly wouldn’t make a scene – but it’s a forever black-mark as far as I’m concerned.

    I’m not talking about something that is obviously a joke, like serving papers on someone for “not believing” (that’s cute!) – but a real, true practical joke. One that makes a person believe, and either sets them up for worry until they find out it’s a joke, or disappointment when they do. It just seems mean to me, and I don’t see mean or hurt feelings as funny.

    When I was a kid, “TV’s Bloopers and Practical Jokes” was a popular show. Bloopers I could watch all day, but I always changed the channel at the end when the practical joke came on. Just couldn’t take it.

    • Generally speaking, I’m with you. Anything I do, like surprise hugs at Baconfest for instance are thought out in advance because I don’t want to hurt anyones feelings 🙂

      Its about knowing your audience. I couldn’t ever do the fake pregnancy announcement, to many people would be sad.

    Dave told me his car wasn’t in the driveway this morning and freaked me out so I punched him in the heart – did I mention the sac around his heart is inflammed and he is in serious pain ! He was finally feeling better, and I punched him right in his heart. The moral of the story here – don’t pull pranks on me, I get punchy when not happy.
