It’s Saturday morning, and it’s April Fools Day.
During these somewhat chaotic times, abstaining from the usual April Fools Day pranks is probably a good idea.
If I’m honest, I can’t even conjure up a credible prank, so I will relate one prank from April Fools Day Past.
This particular April Fools Day morning, I was getting ready to leave our home in East Quogue and head out to Speonk for the 6:21 train to New York. I had started taking a vitamin tablet in the morning, and as I ran the cold water to wash my vitamin down, I was soaked by the kitchen sink hose.
Someone, you see, had taken a rubber band to ensure that the hose would be on when someone ran the water.
The first someone was Eileen, and the second was, of course, me.
I was going to fix her goose, though, and I left the hose as it was so that it would get her when she did as I did and ran the water.
Sadly I had forgotten what I had done or, in this case, not undone.
I came home at the usual time, about 8:15, and for some reason, ran the water in the kitchen sink.
I soaked myself again for the second time in a little more than twelve hours!
My disdain for April Fool’s pranks has not waned since that moment.
However, I am guessing the title of this blog has served as a mild acquiescence to the tradition of April Fool’s pranks, as I am sure you were expecting an entirely different post.
APRIL FOOLS (as they say)!
Very cute, well said
