I just got this e-mail from Carter.

Hey. This may be out of the blue, but I must confess that I've been keeping a secret from you. After patiently waiting, I've now decided I need to let you know, and Friday will be the first opportunity in person. I would tell you today, but I just can't bring myself to let you know by phone. Realizing that we're looking forward to seeing each other, I just can't keep this from you any longer. I'm pretty sure it won't destroy the weekend, but I wanted to give you some advance notice so that you could be prepared. I'll talk to you later.

Carter


I simply replied with "Nice try but no cigar."

Have any of your successfully pulled an April Fool's yet? I got my sister and brother-in-law pretty good last week, but I've not figured out anything for today. If I were brighter, I'd have written back to Carter that I had something I was needing to tell him too. Oh well, I blew that.

Happy April!!

p.s. I'm grateful that in just a few hours I'll be making chocolate chip cookies with four of my junior high reading students to celebrate their good behavior over the last month. It's been great to see how two of them have turned their behavior around over the last few weeks and how excited they are about coming to the toolshed.

Ally, I think you owe it to us blog readers to post a picture of this place you call "the toolshed". This is no April Fool joke. Dr. RJJ

What if Carter wasn't joking?

Ally said...

AM: You're easy:)

RJJ: Will do.

Thomas: Yeah, then the joke really would be on me. I'll keep you posted.

You should have played along and had your Mother introduce him to some random kid as your daughter. ;)

ella said...

You almost got me too! Hmmm....let's talk over IM.

cdp said...

Yeah. Definitely got me! I'm settling down to eat some beer can chicken and watch Real Houseswives - time to unwind and I was totally out of April Fool's mode. Seriously, I was like, really starting to get upset. Good one!

Hope your week is going well so far!

I didn't play any jokes yesterday but I did fall for a joke yesterday. I was questioning it the whole time but I thought, surely this person isn't kidding about this. Totally fell for it.

Thanks for the book recommendation. I haven't read that one but I have read her before. I'll check it out.

i always totally forget you're meant to prank people on april 1st. i'm useless at pranks though...

I fell for it too...I am so gullible. I always forget to wear green on St. Patrick's day too. I am bad at these holidays when you're supposed to remember the "rules."

I hope you are able to go to Sambuca--if you do try to make reservations. I called Sat afternoon and the best I could get was 9:30 pm. Traffic was horrible...even the valet couldn't keep up. Bat just parked himself...the valet was backed up about 15-20 couples when we got there!!! It was insane. Let me know if you go...I also want to try Ru Sans and Watermark that are next door.

Love this. I did some minor April Fooling...nothing serious. But you should check some of my recent posts...
