At the corner of 1st & April
Before leaving for work in the morning, Mr. Handsome called the office manager at the dental practice where he works and told her that he had been in a car wreck and had injured his hand. For most people, an injured hand isn’t a big deal, but for a dentist, it’s a catastrophe. “I can’t get a hold of my wife, and I need a ride to the hospital,” Mr Handsome told her. “Can you pick me up at the corner of 1st St and April St?”
There was a pause as the office manager wrote down the location. It was clear that she hadn’t gotten the joke. “Make sure to come to the corner of 1st St and April St,” my husband repeated. We heard hysterical laughter on the other end of the line, as one of the dental assistants apparently realized that it was an April Fools’ prank. They all thought it was hilarious, and my husband was very proud of himself.
You deserve a donut…just kidding
This one was also my husband’s idea, but I executed it. I went to a local donut shop and purchased half a dozen donuts and an extra box.
I opened the empty box, wrote “Happy April Fools’ Day!” and tossed a few carrots in. I took both boxes over to the dental practice, hiding the box full of donuts in a desk drawer and putting the prank box in the staff break room.
I had work to do, so I couldn’t stick around to see their reactions, but my husband told me that we got a couple of his coworkers really good. If you’re going to use that prank, be sure to weigh the box down a little bit, as some of the other employees said that they were suspicious of such a light box.
I hit your car…
This is the one I played on my husband. Well I was dropping the donuts off, I put this note on his car windshield. (He parks in a church parking lot.) If you really want to be mean, don’t write Happy April Fools’ Day on the note, and the victim will be extremely confused as he or she searches for a dent that doesn’t exist. I decided not to put my husband through that.
When he came home, he told me that he had known it was an April Fools’ joke all along but had not realized it was from me until he read the back. Secretly, I think he just didn’t want to admit that I got him good 🙂
