Every year, I play an April Fool's joke on my wife Robin. She's always on high alert but never sees it coming.
This year, I planned to get her early. She wakes up at a ridiculous hour (6 a.m.) to commute into the city. She stumbles half-asleep into the shower while I'm still in bed. I figured she'd never expect me to prank her while I'm asleep so, the night before, I put a helium balloon of a pirate ship into our shower. I blocked view of it with a towel so she couldn't see the pirate ship until she opened the glass shower door. Half-asleep. Early in the morning before coffee.
Eeeekkk!!! Pirates in the bathroom!!! I heard her shriek in horror. And then curse my name.
Robin was equal parts amused and annoyed. She hates admitting she fell for my joke because she wants to believe she's smarter than that. But one should never underestimate my cleverness...
Did you play any jokes this year?
