Did you get April fooled?

My wife got me twice today! It started this morning. I let her sleep in and got up with our 2 smallest kids. She texted me from our room downstairs and told me she was bawling, puking up blood and needed help. I dropped my phone and RAN down to the room only to find her smiling at me.

The second was after she got home from the city. My wife likes driving through mud puddles and it rained this morning. She came home with our 11yr old daughter and told me our minivan was stuck on the other side of town with a bent wheel!?! I thought my truck keys were in the van so I rode my bicycle across town (6 blocks). Needless to say she had hid the van. I was mad as I rode over there thinking we don't have the money to fix this!

So which of you got it? Or who did you get?

My wife called me while I was at work and told me the fire department had called her and said her mom (who is disabled and lives with us) left a pot on the stove and caught the kitchen on fire. She said '"You have to go home and see what happened RIGHT NOW!" I could tell she was pranking me, so I said, "I can't go home right now, I was having chest pains at work and collapsed, I'm in the hospital." There was an uncomfortable moment of silence, after which we both started laughing and said 'April Fools!'

Would have been the epic reverse back-prank if she had fallen for it.

No fights. By the time I got home I had calmed down. I have to admit, she got me good twice!

I'm plotting for next year!

Well here the closest to an "April Fool" was the park store manager telling me there was no-one scheduled to check in on Sunday so we'd have no problem getting the site we wanted when the person who was on it moved.

We went to church, sang the hymns etc, did a bit of shopping, filled ye-old'takn (OUCH!, That was no April Fool) and parked on the very site we wanted.. (Finished hooking up this am) ... Well.. Someone was indeed scheduled to check in.

He got fooled This site.. IS OURS, till Saturday,, Then we go back to Chruch, Sing some more (Lots more, 3 hours more) Do a bit more shopping first,, Park at church over night, Sing some more on Sunday, and again, Then we split for Michigan.

Anticipate arrival in Mich long about May. (You know all those threads about how fast folks drive.. Let's see. over 20 days to go 800 miles.. You bet I'm not speeding!!!!!)
Home is where I park it!

I hate to admit this, since I'm usually the one doing the pranking, but here it is.

My son returned from Iraq over two years ago. He has had extreme difficulty finding a job, but finally last month he found one he really likes. (that is the setting - on month ago)

Yesterday, April Fools Day, My wife walked into the computer room holding her iPad as if reading her email, lips trembling, sad puppy dog face, and said, "M***** quit his job!"

I cannot repeat the expletives that spewed from my mouth, and she stood there, bottom lip trembling, and then said "April Fool." The trembling lip was to try and keep from busting out laughing. She got me, but wait until next year!!!

If you really want to get her back. And you do this you are taking your life in your own hands but it is roll on the floor funny. MY DW admitted it about a year afterwards. Put a full sheet of Saran wrap at about chest to face height across the bathroom door and smear clear lubricant on it (ky works great) or place the wrap over the toilet bowl but under the seat before you put the seat down- not as funny to her and takes longer for her to admit it was funny. Or put flour in her hair dryer. That one is a riot!

And yes my wife still loves me, mine were nothing compared to some of her pranks- my extreme fear of poisonous snakes- we're at her dads on Lake Eufaula one summer( lots of moccasins in the water around there) anyway we are coming into the beach and her dad drops the anchor( I didn't know it was a set up) too far out so DW says hey hon can you just swim us in and dad will pay out the line until we are good. Me wanting to be all impressing to the dad in law- sure just let me know when to stop. I grab the bow rope and start swimming( lots of tall grass. All of a sudden I hear OH God! Get out, get out, get out of the water there's about 30 snakes right there as the whole boat of folks are pointing right in front of me! Fight or flight kicked in and I think I actually flew into the boat from 20 feet away. I turned to look back at the snakes freaking out and everyone just starts laughing their butts off! Still gives me chills! Or waking up to a rubber snake and hearing a rattle( was our baby's rattle) landed in the clothes hamper that time.

I got DW as soon as she awoke. As I get up first and take the dog out. I told her we have a problem. When she asked what? I said we have a leak in our black tank and it is all over the ground. When I knew I had the hook set I "april fooled" her. She asked if I heard the partying that night. When I said I hadn't she said they partied until 2 a.m. when the park rangers, sheriff and cops came and arrested a bunch of people. Wouldn't you know it? She got me.
