^ Yeah, I wonder how many of those will pop up today. I've had several friends actually encouraging people NOT to go with the "I'm pregnant" joke out of respect for those who suffer with infertility or have lost a child.
I haven't seen or been a part of any jokes today. Not yet, anyway! I'm not planning any, personally.
Last year I did a bunch of silly things for my then 2 year old, which he apparently remembers none of since I asked him about them yesterday! I put food coloring in his milk, served him PB&J and fruit "sushi" for lunch, made a "dirt cup" (pudding, oreos, gummy worms, mint sprigs) for a treat, then I think maybe did meatloaf cupcakes with potato frosting for dinner.
This year I'm going to do breakfast for dinner, which we don't normally do. I'll do funny shaped blueberry pancakes, more dyed milk, breakfast sausage & fruit salad (nothing funny there) and then square hard boiled eggs. We have this 1960's or something egg press where you put the warm round hard boiled egg in and then it makes it into a cube.
The radio station I listen to in the mornings for my alarm is on of these terrible and stupid Top 40 stations. My alarm went off and I hear Lionel Richie's "Hello" and was totally confused why my radio seemed to be on another station- they got me.
Last year we did a small one at our company since April Fools was over the weekend- Sunday I think. I work at a fairly large company and have control over the company intranet. We have all sorts of pictures for various news stories on the homepage. So we swapped all the pictures around so they were sideways, upsidedown, and just silly. Our employees are stupid enough that a whole bunch called the Help Desk to say their intranet was broken, even though the text and links were all totally intact. The Help Desk was annoyed we didn't tell them ahead of time to warn them, but we figured people weren't that dumb. WRONG!
Haven't been a part or seen any jokes yet. I have a feeling that my husband will NOT be playing any tricks on me....especially since he's commented several times about how edgy and moody I am right now.
Nothing yet today, but all ive done is go to my appointment.
A few years ago the college paper for the school in town came out with an april fools issue. I often read it to find out what is going on on campus, and it took me reading 5, yes 5, whole articles to realize that NONE of the stories were real! What a relief, since one of them was about how the school was going to fill in the pond (a major landmark in the town, never mind the school) to have space for the new Engineering building. I was so livid!!! lol
None planned for today, and I haven't had any played on me yet today. I could reasonably do something at work, but they'd probably all panic if they thought my water broke or something so I'll skip that. I COULD do the "I'm pregnant" on FB announcement. It wouldn't be a joke, but since I haven't announced there, it might be slightly amusing. Nah, no fun in that!!
My 3rd got me one year. She told me that she was going to dump out the sugar and put salt in the container. I told her not to because her dad would be furious when he made his coffee. So, I thought she listened. I should have known better!! Anyhow, on April Fool's, when I poured my cereal and was sprinkling sugar over it, I never gave it a thought. What a surprise to have my Rice Krispies and bananas covered in salt!!!
I haven't played any jokes today, but my 3 yr old has been having a great time with it. She had something on her leg and I asked her what it was (small amount of melted chocolate) she looked and said, "it's poop!" Then yelled, "April Fools mommy!" Lol!
No jokes here. Not really our thing. The only time I have ever been involved in one was when I was in 4th grade. My dad set all our clocks ahead so we got up and ready for school and work earlier than we need to. Really it was more of a prank on my mom seems how she had to wake us and get us ready. We got to the school and there was no one there. My mom could not figure it out, she worked there but didn't have a key so we couldn't get in. Then she looked at the clock in the car... She wasn't very happy.
Dinner was a hit with the 3 year old. He loved the funny pancakes and we all loved the cubed hard boiled eggs made with that retro press thing. I colored our milk. James got green and I did blue- both in the kitchen. Then I was able to put some yellow in the bottom of a glass and poured it right in front of DS- we told him the "gremlins" must have put a spell on the glasses, but it was just for one day. He thought gremlins having us have breakfast for dinner was so silly- he loved it.
Nothing this year, but I may have made an *** out of myself last year on April fools day. My cousin came to the salon wearing an engagement ring with her then boyfriend at the time and announced their engagement. I totally didn't believe them, mostly because the ring was horrible and gaudy and I kept saying, ha ha yeah right April Fools, well they are now married and it wasn't April Fools. I'm sure glad I didn't say that I thought it was a joke because the ring was ugly, I would really feel like a jerk had a said that, but really it is terrible!
My stepMIL did the whole 'I'm pregnant' to my FIL. He about had a heart attack. Back story, she is 42, he is 49 and they have a 20 month old son together. She kind of wants another and he is very much done (DH was his only until they had their son. There is 23 years between DH and his little brother).
