Thinking back there was only one year where I played a few. My Dad (Grandpa) took Metamucil to work every day. I poured it back into the container, and replaced it with salt. Then I tied his 1 pair of shoes together. He has 15 AAA (super narrow) clown feet, so he has to special order his shoes. He was super made about me tying his shoes together. As far as the Metamucil went, he thought one of his students did that. He was concerned that someone was out to get him, so I came clean. Then I was in trouble.
He should have known that I would get him someday. He played enough tricks on me. I was just getting him back. ;)
This year I brought April Fools Day back.
I saw way too many wickedly fun ideas online to not try them out.
My rules are:
- Nobody gets hurt!
- I'm not too wasteful with my tricks.
- I don't play too many tricks. Pissing people off isn't my thing. I just wanna have fun.
In the morning they both said, "Why am I not in my bed?" We asked them the same question. Then said,
They didn't think that was very funny. We did.
I asked both boys at different times if they wanted a Brown E and they both said, "Yes!"
That's when Mica lost it and cried because he didn't have tricks for us.
The Brown E's came to work with me.
Just about everyone here fell for them. Just about everyone helped assist others for falling for the Brown E's. I heard, "Oh man that's not cool! I was really hungry!" and "These aren't gluten free Brownies!"
I also gave my students a fake term paper. Only a few didn't fall for it. I had handouts, a PowerPoint with examples. I told them administration wanted me to implement it because there isn't enough papers in the classes here for accreditation. I was to write a 7 to 8 page paper about a current design trend, or product.
I used this as an example:
I gave them all the requirements, and asked if they had any questions?
No one said anything. I saw a bunch of them taking notes as I talked.
Did you play any tricks on anyone this year?
I know Theresa did at Theresa's Mixed Nuts check it out here.
