April Fools Jokes...

Tomorrow is April Fools Day and it's 9 o'clock at night. So I had to get busy. I planned a few tricks for my kids. One caused an explosion of dye on my hand. My kids fight over the downstairs bathroom in the morning to brush their teeth and such. Mainly because they are too lazy to climb the stairs again! So I cut a sponge, soaked it in food coloring (red to look like blood!) and put the sponge inside the faucet aerator. So when they turn the water on in the morning all the water should come out red. You are supposed to use the egg coloring tabs but I didn't have any and there is no running to Wal-Mart or Walgreens here in Oki, so food coloring it is! I also pre-poured the kids milk for the morning, coloring their milk to look like juice. They usually get juice in a cup so this should mess with their oodle-oop! The third and most boring thing I did was switch the cereal boxes. Nothing fancy, but I am certain this will get them as well. Here's a picture of my hand. Hopefully I can play it off in the morning that I broke my ink pad while scrapbooking last night and they'll be none the wiser!
Happy April Fools' Day!

How on earth did you come up with these? Hope they went off and you got the kids.

Hi Coleen! I was an editor for Oki Hai a couple of years back, and wanted to encourage you on your deployment article. When I was "in the game" the other editors and I would be astonished over which articles elicited crazy comments and which didn't. You just never know how people are going to respond to a topic. I, too, wrote with heartfelt honesty about my teenage son getting kicked off the island - in an effort to let others in the same situation know they were not alone! But there were some who read it and were offended, so there ya go. Keep writing, girl!
