Oh what a fun and annoying day this day can be! It is always fun to play a practical joke on someone but when it goes on all day long it can start to get a little old. This April Fool's day is no exception. It started out as any other day. I got up out of bed and started to get dressed for work. I noticed it was still pretty dark out but just brushed it off as being an over cast day. But No! My dear husband had gone around and set all of the clocks an hour ahead. Ha Ha....April Fools. I showed up for work an hour early. Yeah for me..........My morning continues on. I climb up the stairs to go to my office......which has been conviently ransacked with toilet paper. Okay strike number two for April Fool's Day. So while I am up to my elbows in T.P. my cell phone rings.....it's my dear husband. Now this part isn't a joke but has some cruel irony to the day. He is calling to tell me that the front drive shaft of his truck has just gone bad and needs to be replaced for the car to even be drivable. Okay.....so there goes $550 dollars! This day is shaping up to be wonderful so far. So, so far it is only 9:30 in the morning and my April Fool's Day has already been quite active. At this point I really don't want to deal with any more pranks but alas my day is still to young and I am surrounded by people that love to have fun so I look on as my day unfolds with a certain sense of dread.
I make it through the rest of the morning with only one more minor prank to be had which actually did make me chuckle a little bit. Some thoughtful person had come into my office and very artistically glued all of my pen caps to the pens themselves so I couldn't use any of them. No matter how hard I tried to pry those pens apart it just wasn't going to happen. So I trudge off to the supply cabinet to get a new box of pens. Just when I think okay this has to be it I walk into the break room to find all of the vending machines and equipment turned all around facing the walls. I really had my heart set on some chocolate but I wasn't going to mess with trying to turn that thing around so by this time I am really starting to get irritated.
So I manage to get through the rest of the day without any other incidents and I was finally starting to think that maybe April Fools Day was over but again to no avail I walk at the end of the day to go to my car to find that it has been sealed with plastic wrap the whole length of the car! Are you frickin kidding me?? At this point it was either laugh or cry and of course being a good sport I did laugh but I also vowed to get even with every last one of those pranksters and you can bet it won't wait until April Fool's Day next year. It will be when they least expect it and I will relish in my victory. Mwhahahaha!
I am glad to be home now and I have warned my husband that he is not to play any more jokes today if he values his life. I am getting ready to go soak in the tub and have a good chick flick night out on the couch. My popcorn is ready, my drink is ready and I am ready to just let the day go and say another April Fool's has come and gone and I am still alive to tell the tale.
Just so you know....this is a fictional story! April Fools!
