April Fools Day trick backfires!

Posted by maryzcox on Sunday, April 1, 2007

I tried to come up with a really amusing, but not cruel, April Fools joke for my husband this year. I try to pick something that is incredible and magical, but something he would not be happy if it happened--so that he will laugh and sigh with relief when I say "April Fools. " :)

We have an old (over 10 years) Basset Hound that has been fixed for years. (Jezebel) Bob is always announcing that once she goes--there are no more dogs or pets ever in this house again. He wants to be "free" with no more high maintenence dependents or animals!

Also, as background--throughout our married life--all these incredible and magical things have happened--at least to Bob. (our twins were a total surprise--he was stunned when NPR called the house asking for me when I was out grocery shopping--his family at home was pretty quiet--so just about anything that happens around here seems out of the ordinary to him. )

So--I went out on the porch where the dog was sleeping and cried out
"Bob, Bob come here quick--you've got to see this! Jezebel has had one basset puppy during the night!
Well, he came charging out of his den at a hundred miles an hour with this excited look on his face and ran to the porch where I said "April Fools."
But I really messed up big time--because his face fell and he was so disapointed. He really thought that somehow either Jez had had some sort of weird cloned puppy, or one had wandered to our yard and she had brought it in to the porch, and evidently Mr. "We are never getting another dog again" secretly would love a new basset puppy.
I think I am going to have to give up my yearly April Fools joke.
Best wishes,
Mary Z. Cox

Next April 1 get a basset puppy and give it run of the house while insisting that there is no puppy. Invite others over after getting them to agree with the "what puppy?" game so your husband thinks he's the only one who can see Harvey the puppy pooka.
