Did anyone pull a prank on you yesterday in the name of April Fool's Day? Tyler called wanting to know if freeWAY's large shipment of CD's had arrived. He is worried about having them in time for the To The Chief Musician Music Conference where freeWAY will sing next week. I couldn't resist! I told him Rick had called to inform us the CD's were shipped but the UPS truck that carried them had crashed and burned. I added Daywind's insurance would replace the burned CD's but it would take two weeks to get them. The silence on the other end of the phone was huge! I stifled my giggles when he said, "Serious?" I replied, "I am as serious as April Fool's Day." Then, a fit of giggles erupted to the dismay of Tyler who was silently seething. Gotcha, Tyler! LOL
My favorite April Fool's story was from my Aunt Veneta. She was a fabulous baker and would take a home-baked good to work everyday. One April Fool's Day, she took a platter of chocolate covered Styrofoam peanuts. I can only imagine the expressions when teeth sunk into Styrofoam. Gotta love it!
