Have Some Fun!


It's April Fool’s Day.

Come on! Do something fun today. We are.

Over the years we’ve done everything from green eggs and ham, (delivered without a word or hint of smile, at breakfast) to vinegar soaked paper towels in the kid’s pillows (which they, in turn, would leave in Dirk’s truck).

One of my favorite memories is of my dad, the family breakfast maker, putting cotton in our pancakes. Man, those suckers were hard to cut! And chew! He was quite the jokester.

Today, we’re pulling an old trick out of the ol’ April Fool’s jokes hat. It’ll be Vaseline on the doorknob and saran wrap on the toilet seat. Probably not new for our camp-veteran teen boys, but it will be fun when they groggily stumble down the stairs in the morning to their normal first stop: the bathroom. Besides, Dirk said he’d clean it up. Just hope they only have to….well, you know.

Wow! I mismatch all of my dad's socks for April Fools Day! But I forgot to do it this year! You're so cute Robin!

Oh those are so fun! I must admit I'm kind of a fun hater on stuff like that...maybe because I'm the one who has to clean stuff up! But the cotton in the pancakes...that's funny!

My sister Arica and I hid Dad's breakfast (Apple Cinnamon Cheerios) one year. The man is SUCH a creature of habit that it threw off his whole day and we consequently got 'grounded'. Man, some people just can't take a joke. :)

That is too funny, I put vaseline on one of my co-workers phones once and as I was sitting there talking to him, waiting for the phone to ring I forgot about it and when the phone rang I answered it and vaselined myself. I think that was funnier than if he had done it.

You can also put clear tape over the microphone part of the phone so you can hear but they can hear you. Always a good time.
