Book Blogger Hop: April Fools

Book Blogger Hop
Today's question is as follows:

Since today is April Fool's Day, what is the best prank you have ever played on someone OR that someone has played on you?

Well, I do recall playing a prank on my younger sister. Now keep in mind that I was a lot younger when I played this prank and looking back it may have been a bit mean but at the time I thought it was hilarious. During the 80s we had this massive alarm clock in the room that we shared and my sister had no idea what the snooze button was and kept pestering me one day asking me what it was. For some reason I decided to tell her that it was a bomb button and that if I pressed it a bomb would go off in our house. I didn't think for a minute that she would believe me but low and behold she fell for it. Well anytime that she was doing something that was irritating me I would warn her that I was going to press the bomb button if she continued. My sister was terrified of that button and one day when she was being particularly annoying (which I sure wasn't really that annoying at all) I warned her I was going to press the button. My sister continued doing what she was doing and I pressed the button. I have never seen anyone run out of a room as quickly as she did that day. She was in a panic trying to get the rest of my 5 siblings out of the house. To this day, she brings it up and I will never live it down. The joys of the being an older sister, I guess.

I'm looking forward to seeing what kind of pranks you pulled. Enjoy the weekend :)

  1. Younger sisters can be a pest. I was one and after I spilled my sister's Channel No. 5 perfume, I filled it up with water so that she wouldn't find out!

  2. I get caught to my husband's jokes every year (it is now a joke in our family how gullible I am)

  7. We had 8 kids in my family, but we really didn't do anything to each other in terms of pranks. :)

    Hope you have a fun blog hop.

  8. At first I wasn't going to participate in this week's Book Blogger Hop. I'm not even sure why.

    But here I am. And I'm glad! To dispel any false impressions people may have had about me being a old, stodgy fuddy-duddy I'm happy to share some of my very best pranks with you.

    Highlights include - low-grade explosives, eggs and salt shakers. Get all the side-splitting details over on my blog - http://www.howardsherman.net

    They date back to my younger years as a Brooklyn boy which brings about some introspection.

    I'm going to go pull some pranks today. Look out world! I'm coming out of prankster retirement!
