Book Blogger Hop-April Fools

Friday, April 01, 2011

The Book Blogger Hop, hosted by Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books, is a change for book bloggers of all stripes to get the word out about their blog.  My hop post this week will be short and sweet...the question of the week is...

 "Since today is April Fool's Day in the USA, what is the best prank you have ever played on someone OR that someone has played on you?"
My answer is short and sweet because I have never had an April Fool's joke played on my, nor have I ever played one on someone else.  Well, unless you count the students at school who come in every April 1st and say "There's a bug in your hair!  April fools!" or "Your shoe's untied!  April fools!  Of course, as a teacher I feel obligated to look down and laugh, but really April Fools Day in my world is one long string of "tricks" that are older than me (which, of course, the kids think they made up-adorable).


  1. So, after 25 students all try the same trick how do you keep smiling? I don't know if I'd be able to.

    Have a great weekend!

  2. My students actually didn't play any tricks today.

    I am stopping by from the blog hop.

    Hope you have a fun blog hop.

    Stop by my blog if you like.

  3. 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 -

    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!

  4. I think that's the way it is supposed to be. I feel like some pranks though can be just downright mean.

    New follower.

  5. I love how kids always think they're the first ones to think of everything. So cute. And I love that you, as a teacher, play right along.

    Glad to have found you via the Hop!
