Until now, I never...
Played an April Fool’s Joke on Todd


Sometimes it gets to be the end of the day and I haven’t done an I Never.  So tonight as I was saying goodnight to the kids, I told them I didn’t have an I Never, and they recommended I play an April Fools prank on Todd, which I thought that sounded like a grand idea.  So I asked them each to come up with a prank for me.  Nadine told me to put a big book under his pillow so when he got in bed he’d bonk his head on it.  Miles said I should put a fake bug in his drink.  I thought these were both very good ideas, and went about setting them up.  I put a huge hard-cover art book under his pillow, and the bug Miles picked out into the glass of wine he had set next to his bed.  Then I got into bed and promptly fell asleep.

Soon I was awakened with the sound of “What is this book doing under my pillow?” but then promptly fell back asleep.  And when I woke up in the morning I saw the empty glass of wine with the bug next to it, which made me smile.  Success!
