Krista: My first long-term boyfriend and I started dating when we were 21. He'd told me a lot about his mom, who is from New Orleans, a hardcore catholic, and a real firecracker. We'd been going out for 6 months when he took me to visit her on April Fools day. He'd convinced me that she could take a joke, so I'd stuffed a little pillow under my dress - when she opened the door she was greeted by her son and his 21 year old girlfriend she's meeting for the first time, looking 6 months along. Her eyes got huge, her mouth dropped open and in her most intense cajun accent she shouted OH MY GAWWWWWD, I NEED A DRINK!!!! Epic. After the pillow came out (she took it well) we got along like a house on fire.
One of the Best Playful Moments: Halloween Photobooth pictures with my best friend. And yes. He is a Unicorn. Which means it was also Magical! :)
This year, I bombarded my boyfriend on the subway ride into work: "We should talk." (He looked panicked.) April Fools! "I'm late..." (He looked panicked.) April Fools! "I think I'm going to be laid off." (He laughed.) April Fools! "We might get evicted." (No longer amused.) April Fools!
I got to work - it was March 31st.
angelab44: I love this stuff! Best April Fool's prank I pulled off in the 6th grade. I prepped my close friends the day before by telling them that I had a twin sister that lived in Mexico with our father (who didn't actually live in Mexico). I told them she was coming to visit and that she would be in taking my place in school the next day. That no one would know we had switched. So the next day I came in dressed slightly different with a slightly stronger accent and introduced myself to my close friends. At first they didn't believe me, but the more I talked about it I had them convinced! At the end of the day they even called me by my "twin sisters" name and that's when I said APRIL FOOLS! HAHAHA
One of the best jokes I've ever played on someone happened just a couple weeks ago...
