I've got one for you-
This happened 5 years ago (tomorrow). My wife and kids had been bugging me for a few years about getting a dog. I've always been a cat person. So, on
April Fool's Day I called my wife and said I just left an animal shelter where I had adopted a dog. I went so far as to describe it- small, tan,
Terrier mix, female. Well, she and the kids went NUTZ and immediately went to Petco and bought food bowls, dog food, dog treats, collar, nametag, the
When I got home they rushed out to my truck eyes wide with excitement.
I got out of the truck and yelled "April Fools"! with a big laugh. All 3 (including my wife) burst into tears...followed by anger.
(why did I think that was going to be funny????? I don't know)
The next day my wife went to animal shelters and found a dog.
She is small, tan, female, and a Terrier mix - Sue Ellen the dog.
I love that damn dog, it sleeps under the covers with me every night and is my best buddy.
And I still haven't lived that stunt down.
And another one, also true-
The company I worked for for 18 years fired me last year on 4/1. Over some BS inventory that I had no control over. Even after I got home that
afternoon, and broke the news to my wife there was something still telling me it was all a big April Fool's joke.
