Giveaway! Kenneth Jay Lane Earrings! I'm not foolin!

Seeing as how April Fools Day is coming up and I loooove a good story I thought I would do a little "giveaway" to get people to share their funny stories with me. Put your best April Fools Day story in the comment section between now and midnight on April 01st. On the 2nd I will draw the name of a person who will win a brand new pair of purple Kenneth Jay Lane chandelier earrings from the Gilt Group. They really are gorgeous! (If you aren't a member of the Gilt Group let me know and I can get you the referral to get in. AMAZING deals on designer goods.) So go ahead and tell me your funny stories! Amuse me, please!

well, i can't remember any good ones from the past, but i have an idea for this year...Diane (jer's mom) so badly wanted us to get into the surgery program in utah, what do you think if i send a letter to jeremy-from the "university of utah" to his parents house inviting him to come to Utah's program because he was so impressive that they wanted to extend an invitation for him to come to utah?! i don't know...that just might do her in once we said...APRIL FOOLS!

Oh this sounds fun! Unfortunately, I don't have any amazing stories...but here goes nothing:

My Grandparents from Ohio were visiting my Aunt on the West Coast on April 1st, when my Mom calls my Aunt to tell her that whales were spotted about an hour away from where they were (this was my Mom's April Fools' joke). Sure enough, my grandparents and aunt believed her and started making their way to the spot where the whales had supposedly been spotted. My Mom called them back five minutes later to make sure they weren't going to make the drive and explain it was a joke, but unfortunately, there was no cell phone service where my grandparents and aunt were driving, and they missed the call. An hour later my grandparents and aunt arrived at the spot only to find an empty coastline with no whales to be seen.

Although the joke was taken a lot farther than she intended, my Mom got a good laugh out of it.

Ok, I'll share my own. Many, many moons ago when I was a divorced single mom I was having a family dinner with the guy I was dating, his parents, sister, her daughter, her husband and my daughter who was 5 at the time. We're sitting there quietly eating and Tessa says "My mom's having a baby." Silence. Total silence. Then she says "April Fools." Conversation began again in earnest.

KT, that story is too funny!

We don't really do April Fools Day jokes much in my family. But my husband likes to make up random stories at all times of the year.

Like the time he swore he saw my best friend on TV at the Alabama v. Georgia game. He had me so convinced that I called her cell phone to leave a message that she'd been on TV. To my surprise, she actually answered in the middle of the football game. Except she wasn't AT the game....she was watching it from her couch.
Damn him and his incredible story-telling abilities!

I am not good at pulling off practical jokes or pranks of any variety. I did one year convince my mother, friends and even He-weasel that I had gotten a tattoo. He-weasel discovered my April Fools as soon as he got home and asked to see it. Not funny but it's the best I've got.

I don't do Aprils Fools...when we were younger we used to put the chalk in the erasers in grade school...

That's it. I'm a lot lamer than it seems apparently.

april 1 always escapes my memory, unfortunately.

there was the time, though, i told my best friend from junior high i wanted her to save her nail clippings so i could paint and glitter them for jewelry. she did. and so did her sisters.

i don't know which i was more appalled by: my disgusting lie or the fact she thought i was serious.

yeah, i was a real cool kid.

caroline duke said...

wow, i'm suddenly embarrassed i shared a story about toenails with the blogosphere.

My mom used to threaten me if I ever tried to get her on an April's Fool, I still live in terror that I will piss someone off.

However, I have a funny Birthday Fool's Joke - years ago I had a boyfriend whose B-day was 1/27 and mine is 2/1. We went out for a b-day dinner and exchanged gifts. I gave him a $50 watch (I said it was a long time ago - I am talking high school here) and he gave me a $20 bill in a card that I swear his mother must have had in a random stash. I was pissed - I know they say it is better to give than receive, but WTF?! I was already thinking about dropping him and this pretty much sealed the deal. The watch ended up not working, so he gave it back to me so I could exchange it. Once I had the watch back I broke up with him, returned the watch and added the $50 to the $20 he gave me and bought myself something nice! He was actually dumb enough to ask his friend to ask me when he was going to get his watch back - ha!! Jokes on you buddy - better learn to give better gifts! I know it has nothing to do with April Fools but this story still makes me chuckle!

I work in a kitchen, so today some of the employees but our Executive Chef and our Production managers chairs into the freezer (while we were eating lunch/having our weekly mgr. meeting) They had a "look out" so when we all started to return to our offices, they pulled the chairs out of the freezer and put them back in the office..imagine the suprise of Chef and Production mgr when they sat in their frozen seats...Morale of the story, look for security cameras...we did some investigating on our security cameras and we know who did it...lets just say April Fools is stretching to tomorrow in our kitchen! :)

Love your blog!
