I'll work on a blog post about what I did or didn't achieve during my week's (cough) absence sometime this weekend, but not on April Fools' day. One should only do foolish things today, like:
Phone office services and tell them the bucket they put above the ceiling tile had fallen through and landed on someone's head, and they are wearing it as a hat. Flap, flap, flap.
Being a wise and unfoolable sort, I haven't fallen for too many April Fool jokes over the years. Ahem! But the below, was a classic...
Once upon a time a naive me opened the local free paper to read an article about a new television channel that would be showing the latest movies for free. This may have been in the early days of cable or satellite television, or before then when the UK only had a measly four or five stations. I was super excited and began following the instructions--boring stuff like turning your tv on etc etc, then clapping your hands at the television (yes, I did that), then rushing across the room to open the window and wave your arms... Oh!
To which my mum said, "What are you doing?"
"Being an April Fool," I replied.
I may never live it down. Especially as I keep mentioning it.
