Most of you know that today is my birthday. I have always had tricks played on me throughout the years as a result. One year, my friends in high school even convinced one of the hardest English teachers at our school to play a trick on me by giving me a D- on a paper that we got back on April 1st (I really got an A-).
Anyway, I typically don't play tricks on people mainly because I can't keep a straight face. But today I had a brilliant idea. I had my boss call my sister Dani in a panic to tell her that my water broke while in the operating room, that we couldn't get John on the phone, and that she was the next person who I could think to call....how mean am I?
Dani must have immediately sounded scared, because my boss's eyes widened and she handed me the phone so that I could say "APRIL FOOLS!," which was then followed my a series of "I HATE YOU"'s from my sister...totally justified!
I called her again later in the afternoon to make sure that she had recovered from the shock of the joke. She is fine, but she informed me of all the plans that ran through her head in those short seconds. It's good to know that if something emergent does happen that she will be able think fast.
