Don't Be a Sucker Today

Yeah, today is April Fool's Day.
Don't let anyone play any nasty tricks on you!

I remember circling April first on my calendar when I was younger so that I could beware. I grew up with two older sisters.

Tabasco SauceOne year I put Tabasco sauce in my mother's Burger King cup that was in the fridge. Then, about an hour later the guilt caught up with me so I dumped out the soda in the sink. I popped open a new Coke can and dumped the thing into my mother's cup and replaced it in the fridge.

The next day my mother told me that when she took a drink of her soda she about died. Her mouth was on fire. Apparently, a few drops of hot sauce is really potent, and rinsing the cup does not help. I don't think she believed that I had tried to not trick her. I still kind of feel bad for that. I don't play April Fool's jokes anymore.


  1. awwwwww...poor jenn's mother.
    Maybe that is why you didn't want to meet up with me...you thought i would play a trick on you....

  2. maybe that is why your mom likes me more... haha... i am just joking...
