So, it was March 31st, and we thought we should really prank the kids this year. In the past, Katie has managed some good ones, like emerging with ketchup all over her hands and face, to terrify the boys. It worked very well.
This year, in the middle of the pandemic, we decided to “get a phone call” and tell the kids that school was back on. So, in the morning Katie walked into their room, and I called her phone, and she did the acting. The kids didn’t fall for it at all. Not even a second. It was demoralizing.
Anyway, we went to bed that night, and then awoke to the sound of Liam vomitting in the toilet downstairs. He’d been sick in the night time just a few days before, as well. Katie, bless her, went town to take care of the kid and there he was, hunched over the toilet. She got him to stand up, and he was shaky. Poor dude.
Then everything changed. He stood up, stopped shaking, and said he was joking. He felt bad for stringing us on so long. It was all an April Fool’s joke, and we bought it hook, line and sinker.
Bravo dudes! Here’s to more practial joking!
