Make me laugh!


  1. Well........I had an April Fool's joke played on me earlier today. It was funny but it wasn't. LOL!!!

    My building custodian opened the door to my office and told me that the people using one of the rooms here in my building had taped a bunch of stuff to the wall. That's a big NO-NO and immediately pissed me off!! As I was grabbing my keys to go talk to them he say "April Fool's" and closes the door. I've never seen him laugh so hard.

    So it was funny, but it wasn't. LOL!!!

  2. You do know that I married my husband on April Fools day 16 years ago.......OR DID I??

  3. Today was a professional development day, so there were no students at school. Instead, we had a full day of meetings (always a pleasure - NOT!) and a few guest speakers. After the first guests were introduced, the man stood to speak and says, "Good morning, everyone. Thank you for having us this morning. We're going to try and get through our presentation as quickly as possible, and we should be able to wrap it up by 5:00." Ummm.....HUH?! Then, he giggled, and said, "APRIL FOOL'S!" Ok, maybe you had to be there....

    Wait, this will make you laugh. Yesterday, while we were up in the computer lab, I was sitting with one of my babies, helping him with what he was working on, and on my other side was one of my smartest babies. All of a sudden I hear, "Argh! Give me a break here! I'm only a first grader!!!!" It was hilarious!

  4. Okay, so today I was getting ready to take a shower as our water meter reader was making his rounds. I was mid-shampoo with half of my legs shaved when the water goes out. My hubby came running in the bathroom to tell me the water was disconnected. Seriously? Of course I worked all night, and didn't put the date together until I came running out of the bathroom in my robe with shampoo suds running down my face and John cracked up laughing. hHE had turned off the water to the house. Has to be the best one pulled on me to date. So tonight, I'm gonna get back at him with a 2 AM phone call, crying, to tell him I'm pregnant again. You know what they say about paybacks!

  5. The absolute best "Gotcha" was when I was working for Outer Circle Products. And it was Valentine's Day not April Fools.

    My boss came in with a inventory sheet and said something about "The system shows a whole bunch of the stuff in the warehouse, but we can't find it and production needs it NOW NOW NOW".

    "Bullcookies," said I, "If it's in the computer, it's in the warehouse !!" Needless to say, the location for this stuff was all the way in the far-back-ass-end of our 650,000 sq ft warehouse. Someone had taken the golf cart so I had to hoof it from the offices in front end of the warehouse.

    I finally get back there and sure enough there's the stuff. Funny, it was back here because we hadn't used that product in years. Maybe Charlie finally found a buyer for this close-out crap. Okay, all I need to do now is find one of my forklift drivers and have him start hauling the pallets to production.

    I walk back to the main aisle and hmmmm, don't see any forklifts moving around. Head back closer and there's no one on the docks loading or unloading trailers and containers. Get closer to the offices and I see forklifts parked all over the place. Now, I'm ticked. We've got a ton of work to do and everyone's decided to take break at the same time. Somebody better whip out a pad of "Hurt Feeling Reports" because I'm going to chew a whole bunch of ass.

    I walk into the break/lunch room ready to rip off heads, when I get big hug from "STUPID CUPID". Some poofda is in a diaper with fairy wings and cupid bow, trying to give me a kiss. He almost got punched, but once I saw everyone in the room, I managed to slip away from him with some of my dignity.

    My admin assistant had teamed up with a local radio station to have "STUPID CUPID" come visit your company and surprise your boss. Several pictures of me (and other bosses) got put up on the station's website and the taped shenanigans were played on the radio. Everyone took pictures and utterly delighted in my being totally red-faced and embarrassed. I'm glad I gave everyone a laugh and congratulated my boss and my admin assistant (along with everyone else) for having got me but good.

    So Tracey, if you're reading this. I still owe you for that.......

    I posted this on my blog as well:

  6. Okay, my niece, who has a 2 year old and a 4-month old posted this on her blog on April 1 along with a picture of a "Clearblue" device that said "pregnant". Her babies are beautiful but I was thinking she was totally nuts and how I could respond without saying that and making her mad. Another blog followed later that day that said April Fools.

    Joyful Surprise!
    For the last five months, I've been telling anyone who asked that this uterus was closed for business. I was serious, but life has another plan for us. John, Jack, Luke, and I are joyfully expecting baby #3 on October 12th. I can only hope that Luke is sleeping through the night by then... More to come.

  7. @ Jan -- that is EXACTLY what happened to me! Mazel Tov on baby #3!
