Blogging A to Z

I saw the Blogging A to Z Challenge on my dear friend Jacqueline's blog and decided I'd give it a go!

Today is brought to you by the letter A.

A is for Apples, Artwork and April Fool's Day!

April Fool's Day used to be like Christmas to me, but I'm sad to say that I've lost my gusto. I'm even more embarassed to say that I didn't plan anything major this year.

I think as a young married couple, it is your obligation to pull the "we're pregnant" prank on at least one family member. We did this a few years ago and got the following responses:

Me: "We're pregnant!!"
My Dad: "No you're not, here's your mother..." (he is the one I learned the art of pranking from, so he handed the phone to mom)
Me: "Mom, we're pregnant!" Mom: "What?! You ARE?! I'm going to be a grandmother?! Wait...what's today...? (flipping through her calendar) WENDY! I'm not speaking to you anymore."

Meanwhile, on the other side of the family...

Andrew: "Hi mom, guess what? Wendy's pregnant!"
Andrew's mom: "She is?! That is such great news!"
Then, Andrew kept it going way past the point of it being a joke, using lingo like "we are in our first tri-mester so we aren't really telling anyone yet." He even told his mother "if it's a girl we'd like to name it after you" - I grabbed the phone from him at that point.

This year I'm targetting a co-worker. Andrew's gotten used to all of my "oh no, we slept past the alarm and it's 9am!!!" type jokes, and really doesn't believe half of what I say any more anyway. So far so good, I put tape on my poor, unsuspecting co-worker's mouse so that it doesn't work, changed the font on all of his monthly reports to Chinese, and it's not even noon yet!

What are you doing to celebrate April Fool's Day?
