Hee hee, Happy April Fools Day!


    Many April Fool’s Day’s have come and gone without me “celebrating”.  However, there were a few occasions I participated in the fun of it all. 

  The first trick I ever played on Dale, was filling his toothbrush with Orajel. (A bit More about this here).  Funny, right?! 


  But, the BEST April Fool’s joke I played on Dale, was not the year I called and told him I was pregnant, even though we had just been pregnant twice in two years and he about peed his pants.  Nope, I got him better than that.  The best one was this:

  Meet Elvis.  Our lovable mutt who has since gone to doggy heaven. You’ll need to know who he is for this story to make any sense.

  So, I called Dale’s phone, hoping he’d answer, but it went to voicemail.  Darn.  Oh well, this could work on voice mail.  So, I started working the tears and tearful voice up, as it was time to leave a message.  When he played it back, this is what he heard:”[sob sob sob] Dale? [sob sob sob] Elvis [sob sob sob] Blood [sob sob sob] Dead!”  And hung up.

  Oops! I instantly feel guilty.  I hadn’t lied, right?  I only said 4 words with pretend sobbing in the middle.  Oh man, what a mean message! 

  With no chance to go back and say “April Fools” at the end, I quickly called him back and left him a second message laughing hysterically and telling him it was all an April Fool’s Day joke. There, now my conscience was a peace. 🙂 

  The rest of the story I had to hear from Dale and his brother: 

  Apparently, Dale had just stopped over at his brothers house, to hang out between appointments, when he saw he had missed a couple calls from me during his last appointment.  He quickly called voicemail to retrieve messages.  He hear’s my sob message and in an instant, springs to his feet:

“I gotta go!” he yells, throwing down the remote and bolting out of the house.

“What the heck?!” says his brother, watching Dale run full speed out to his car. 

  About the time Dale reaches his car door, and flings it open, fully prepared to speed home to my rescue and see poor Elvis’s demise, he gets my second message.  “Ah, geez. She got me.  SHE GOT ME!” he yells back to his brother. 

  Shaking his head, heart still racing, he walks back up to his brother’s house, lets himself back in, “Tonya TOTALLY got me. She is the best trickster ever and I will NEVER be able to top this! Never!!” 

  Ok, maybe not that last sentence, but he begrudgingly admits defeat, at least for the moment.


  Neither one of us have been able to top that one, at least not a fully believable trick like that.  I am all out of ideas though.  I’d do the “I’m pregnant” thing again, but after 8 pregnancies in 8 years, followed by a Vasectomy, I think the poor guy would cry.  I sure don’t want him to do that! 

 Today will come and go with no jokes from me.  Dale’s a sly one, but I know all his tricks!  He can’t pull a fast on one me!

Happy April Fool’s Day!
