Just One Trick Today.

Naturally, it being April Fool’s Day, I had to do something to somebody. My dd and I were discussing this last night so it was on her mind this morning. So she was out. And the boys are too little. And my mom’s in Florida for a week so she was out.

That left my dh.

So I played it cool and mild.

“Hey, honey, did you know  your back tire is low?”

“No, where?”

“Back tire closest to us. Look.” He looked out the window but could only see the front of the car.

Me again..”Did you run something over last night?”

“No, it was fine while I was driving home.”

“Well, then, you must have driven over something in the driveway.”


He proceeded to get dressed and I thought he was on to me and just letting me get away with it. Then he went to the front of the house to see his car better and I followed him.

Me…”See it?”

“Where?” Then he looked at me and grinned. He really had fallen for it.

“Ha! Got ya…April Fool’s Day!”

Then he told me about how he had been worrying about getting it fixed and how much that was going to cost and how to get the car there, etc.

“See? I made your day better! Now you don’t have to stress about your car!”  Twisted, but good, logic 😀
