There are so many boring people out there who can’t take a good joke. Dean, for one, made me promise not to play a joke on him this coming April Fool’s Day. Bahumbug. I think jokes and surprises can be so much fun, especially when they’re custom-tailored and very conniving.
Last year on April Fool’s, I sent Dean a scathing email. “My dad found out about your blog Gavin Newsom Sucks. He is a major democrat and he thinks I should reconsider dating you, since you write so negatively about democratic leadership.” Dean almost shit in his pants at work. Too funny!
My friend Erin is a huge rock band karaoke fiend. Her sisters pretended that her picture had been scooped up by a local newspaper featuring rock band karaoke. Erin was so excited, she blasted the news to all her friends–only to find out it had been a farce! That one will go down in April Fool’s history. I tell it every year.
This past weekend, we went to Dean’s friend’s surprise 40th birthday party. The guy came in to a bar full of friends and family, including his mom and siblings who had flown in from Connecticut. That’s one big surprise!
My former coworker Melissa had accidentally left her cell phone with her husband. So she had one of our male coworkers named Rob call the phone. When her husband picked up, Rob said, “Is Melissa there? Oh, weird, this is the number she gave me at the bar.”
Melissa’s husband called her furiously at work, “Are you cheating on me?!” HAHA! We were cracking up all day long.
Can someone play a joke on me? I love to be fooled!
