The story starts with my previous post requesting help from you, my faithful readers (all five or so of you). Amy from South Africa suggested this idea so I must first of all acknowledge her assistance. Thank you, Amy!!! My second acknowledgement must go to my chiropractor, Dr. Jeff Anderson. He loves to hear about my April Fool's "gifts" and asked me what my plans were. I told him Amy's idea of using poppers on chair rollers, but I had no idea where to get them. As it turns out, you can only get them in states where fireworks are legal and Iowa is not one of them. He just happened to have gotten a case of them in WI and said he would be happy to share. Thank you , Dr. Anderson!!!!!!!!!!
So here they are - the wonderful box of poppers.
Now, let me introduce you to my partner in crime. Stacey is my friend, Jr. Girls co-teacher and now my April Fool's buddy. I didn't just want to keep the joy all at camp, so she met me at the church and we left "gifts" for our pastors as well.
Stacey thought that our pastor's wife, Mary would like her desk decorated a bit. We thought what better to decorate with than T.P. Mary knew we were going to leave "gifts" for the pastors, so we knew she would know this was from us. She didn't work today, so I guess the other secretary was the one to receive the gift in her honor.
Mary called me this morning to tell me that Pastor called her to tell her that everything in his office popped this morning when he went in. (Just imagine my evil laugh...ahhhh, ahhhh, ahhhh.) He thinks it was all Stacey because of the note she left on Mary's desk. I'm sure he doesn't read my blog and Mary told him that she would never reveal her sources. I'm safe for now.
This year, I had several "gifts" left for me as well. When I arrived at my desk this morning, the desktop on my computer was upside down and my mouse had been tampered with. Try moving your mouse in the opposite direction than normal to try to fix everything. That was a good one. Thanks Shane.
When I went downstairs for lunch I noticed right away that something was a muck. (I heard that in a movie once and just love that phrase.) The handles on my refrigerator and freezer had been moved to the other side. They also switched a couple of my drawers. Thank you Dan, Shane and Aaron. (My mom taught me that it's rude not to thank people for gifts.) I hope this is a gift that will be fixed though. It will drive me crazy to have to open the doors from the other direction now.
So, how did you celebrate. Come on...don't be a dud. Get in the spirit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
