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!
