Hello KK,

Last April Fool's Day my sister (who is in her last year of a phd program) told me she was inspired by not being able to help her sick cat and wanted to drop out of school to be a vet tech. I'm sure other people have better stories... People haven't tried to April Fool's me very much, I guess.

I live all my life in Mexico, and there, the is no such thing as april fools, but there is a day called: innocents day. In which if you ask to borrow anything from a friend you may keep it for ever, and also well the pranks and all. Well it is not my story but my mother's, in that specific day she got told by the doctor that she was pregnant (with me!)... but, she keep asking him if it was a joke... she did and extra test by herself because she just needed to be really sure.

It's mean... I bent a pin and stuck it in the carpet stairs where my sister would step on it. Then I hid and watched and waited.... It wasn't much of a joke, but I was like five, so I didn't quite "get" April Fool's yet.

Not an April Fools story but it should be, and it is fresh in my mind this morning due to another post elsewhere.
I used to have this studio assistant working for me. She used to file my AMEX statements under "T" for "The" bank statement and put stamps on the wrong corner of the envelops.
I kid you not...

Hey Katie! :)
Two years ago my little brother and his girlfriend of two years decided to trick our track coach into thinking they had broken up (in the middle of the season)...we had probably 10 people in on the plan and it completely worked, he was mad because he didn't want it to emotionally interfere with their seasons.... good times.
Hope you are well!

Last year, my cousin text me and told me she was a lesbian. I was already suspicious of her sexuality. So I immediately offered my support to her in coming out to our family. I even went on facebook to see if she had lots of pictures with a girl that may have been her significant other. She let me wallow, then called me a few hours later exclaiming "April Fools! Thanks for the offer though!"

I played a joke on my coworker. Joe had a customer whose company name was "Applied Tool." When they put you on hold, it would have several taglines, ads etc, one of which said..."so, grab your tool today at Applied!" I knew his contact's name there was Chris. Anyway...my coworker got a fax from Chris that day for a new order, and I handwrote on the bottom (in my most manly writing) "Joe, Grab your tool!- Chris" with a smiley face. I then copied it and stuck it back on the fax machine so it looked like it was faxed that way... Minutes later Joe saw the fax and began freaking out to me. He agonized over it all day, thinking the guy he worked with at this company was being nasty and suggestive about his "tool"...until I finally told him, in a fit of giggles.

Well...... last year, Fareine and I called my work from Detroit and told them that all my photo equipment had been stolen and we were dealing with the police. I asked for my boss, but got another co-worker instead, and he proceeded to council us with what to tell the cops.... after a few uncomfortable moments... we laughed and told him the joke was on him. He wasn't too happy... but WE GOT HIM GOOD!!!
