April Fools

When I was a child, I lived for April 1st. I would plot for weeks on how I was going to get my mom or my siblings. One year, my brother and I went to the grocery store with my mom, we decided to stay in the car. While she was inside, my brother cooked up this plan. When my mom came back to the car she was hysterical. She was screaming and jumping up and down. It was my brothers idea to cover my neck with ketchup and my clothes and have me hang outside of the car, as if someone had cut my throat. It was very hot outside and the ketchup was runny like real blood. My brother had it all over his head and back and was slumped over the seat. My mom almost died from heart attack right then and there. We laid there for about 2 minutes, and then my mom picked me up and I said "April Fool's". We got our a$$es tore up that day. I think that was one of the worst pranks we have played in history.

My daughter got me really good she pretended like she wasn't feeling well and then she laid down in my bed. I laid down with her. That is my routine, everytime Jaree get's sick. She will not let me move, she has to be near me. I even sleep with her in the hospital bed. She has always been that way. She only wants me when she is sick. Well, she started to tremor and I got really nervous. Then she started shaking. I started screaming. My boys ran up stairs. I yell call, 911! The boys didn't movie. I flip her on her side. Then all of the sudden she says "Mommy, gotcha". I wanted to kill her. Of all things for her to do! She has epilepsy for crying out loud. I told her don't ever play like that. I guess history repeated itself. My mom would be really proud to know my kids payed me back. I almost peed my pants! Darned kids! And yes the boys were in on it. Probably put her up to it.
