I know we are not yet celebrating April Fool's Day, but I love a good prank. Pranks are on my mind, we are brainstorming at work right now because our boss is about to go on vacation next week and it is our job, our right, to prank the person who will "be in charge." You know, just to keep things interesting.
Any suggestions? Thoughts? The prank concentration has been on wardrobe so far. We have a dress code at work, and everyone is racking their brains on how to wardrobe prank appropriately.
We had a friend here in Ohio that was the world's greatest prank-er. Once, he saved cardboard boxes and created a cubical-sized gingerbread house, complete with window boxes and shingles, for another friend of ours.
Some of my work? Light weight stuff like rubber-banding the sink sprayer in the kitchen, and switching the sugar and the salt in all the kitchen containers (my Dad was none too happy about that one, but then again I was 12).
Group pranks? One of my favorites? We used to have a small group in NC. Our small group would meet once a week and eat and pray. After years of meeting we whittled down to a core group of 6 including David and me. We met every Thursday, and knew each other VERY well. Jim and Sara, Robin and Keith, and David and me. Robin and Keith (who were our age) got married. At their wedding reception they had a photographer that took a picture of each family group in front of a backdrop. Jim, Sara, David and I decided to mix things up and prank Robin and Keith. When the photographer approached our table Jim and I took Sam and went and stood in front of the backdrop and hammed it up for the camera, posing like we were married. Next David and Sara took Hannah (Jim and Sara's kids are adults and live out of state) and did the same. They glamor-shot posed it up for the camera...arms around each other, the whole shooting match.
A few weeks later Robin and Keith came to our house for small group and showed off their wedding album. They thought it was hilarious that we had wife swapped!
Any thoughts for next week, or April 1st? I need new material.
