My subject is
Have you ever been an April Fool? Tell a real or fictional story about a time you were played for a fool. It was submitted by The Lieber Family . 

Here goes:

I am one of those awkward, introvert types, so there are really too many feeling foolish storied to tell. I usually feel foolish at least once every day! 

So.... Umm... Yeah... I have DEFINITELY been made to feel foolish... On several occasions, actually...
Here are two of them because that's about all the humiliation I can take. ;)

Fool #1 

When Colin was a baby Deanna had a Chou Chou doll. It was about the same size he was (after a few months). One day I left all the kids home with The Hubby while I went to the doctor. 
I guess they heard be pull into the driveway because when I walked in everyone was at the top of the stairs.
The Hubby started to walk down the stairs with "Colin" in his arms. A few steps down he stumbled and dropped "Colin". 
OMG! I nearly had a heart attack on the spot. I remember screaming and running forward to try to catch "Colin". 
Then I realized it was only a doll. 
I could have killed The Hubby. Really, the only reason he's alive is that I don't look good in orange. 
He went so far as taking a Sharpie and coloring in the doll's hair to look like Colin's. 

Fool #2

I'm not sure if I've told this one before or not... Just bear with me if you've heard it. 

One day The Hubby starts to go off outside to shoot his gun. Nothing unusual in that. He did it all the time when we lived out in the country.

Then I hear him shoot. Same ol', same ol'. 

Deanna starts yelling that he shot his gun and now he's lying on the ground!

I jump up and run outside, calling his name and asking if he is OK. 

The Hubby leans up on one arm and I see blood all over his torso. 

I scream, turn around, and start running for the house to call 911. 

Then I hear him laughing and calling my name. 

It was fake blood. 

I burst into tears. 

He and Deanna set the whole thing up. He said he wanted to know how I would react in an emergency. 

Once again, he is only alive because I look bad in orange.

I am still reallllllly mad at him for both of those incidents. I don't think I will ever get over them.

Don't forget to check out all the amazing bloggers participating this month!!!!


  1. You must be a saint. I would have killed him.

  2. Oh man, even though I knew you were going to tell about being pranked, I was still shocked. Not my idea of fun. You did slap him good, right?
    Thinking of you and "Baby" Colin these days. Hope he is recovering by the hour and will get to hunt some eggs :-)

    1. THANK YOU!!!!!!
      We go for a follow up appointment today. Fingers crossed!!!

  3. He is super lucky you didn't really shoot him 😉

  4. I have to admit that if I were you I'd be permanently on a heart monitor. Good thing you don't look good in orange!

    1. It's a definite wonder that I'm not!! I think I get closer every day!!!

  5. ONLY because these did not happen to me are they hysterical but I can tell you if he did it to me...well, I don't look good in orange either! Talk about scarring you for life. Now if he does this too often he needs to be reminded of the boy who cried wolf.
    Spatulas On Parade

    1. EXACTLY!!! I don't know that I would ever believe him if something bad did happen!!

  6. Oh no!! Those are awful stories! My husband would not last long after pulling either of those one me!!

    1. Some days I definitely wish I had gone for it.... ;)

  7. Wow I would have said bugger how bad I look in orange, that man needs to bleed. You are certainly a more gracious lady than I am.

    1. I get closer to that orange jumpsuit every single day.

  8. I would have sobbed too then gone ballistic!!!! He really is lucky you are a nice person. I think a major payback is needed

    1. I wish I could think of something bad enough to do in return but my mind just doesn't think like that. LOL He is soooo lucky!

  9. That fake blood would have turned into real blood so quick! Lucky for The Big Guy, he knows better. You truly are a saint!
