So, I was having a lil Twitter convo with Ilona Andrews reminiscing about some of her April Fools LJ posts in years past. Last year she posted that Curran would die in the next book in the series as a an April Fools but was quickly inundated with panicked e-mails from horrified fans begging for the life of our favorite Alpha Cat. This year, she elected not to do and April Fools post. :P That got me to thinking about some of my more memorable April Fools Day jokes that maybe didn't go over so well.
About four years ago the hubster and I moved across country from California to North Carolina. All our family was still out in Cali and we decided that for our first April Fools Day in our new house we would do it big. We called our parents and siblings and informed them that we were preggers! Hahaha, right? WRONG. My mom went into crying hysterics because her only child was way across the country and she wouldn't even get to see this grandkid be born and she missed her lil grandsons so much and so on and so forth. Yeah, it was kinda awful. Then we had to say, no see APRIL FOOLS, Y'ALL! *sigh*
When I tweeted briefly about my lil April Fools Preggers Mishap, the lovely KC from Smokinhotbooks said that she, too, had tried the, "honey I'm preggers!" April Fools trope and that it, too didn't go so well.
So, I ask you guys, what was the worst April Fools joke that you pulled or had pulled on you? What was the best? Let's hear it folks. Make me feel better by proving that I'm not the only dork with a sick sense of humor that often bites me in the ass.
Muah! And Happy April ;)
