Does anyone have any good April Fool stories to share? I'm pretty sure that I haven't been hoodwinked today but only time will tell!
Some of the girls at our school tried playing pranks, one of the more successful ones was when our deputy head (who is also a language teacher) went to teach her Year 9 class and they were all sitting there silently. Arms crossed. Not a murmur from anyone. Much as we would like to think that this is how all Year 9 classes are anyway, trust me, they are not! She was very suspicious. Started the class, asked a question and then one of the girls in the front row held up a card which said 'I am on a sponsored silence'. Then the next girl did the same, and the next - until the whole class were holding up signs. She was almost taken in, until one of the girls couldn't stop herself from grinning and the penny dropped ....!
Not so successful were the girls who thought it would be fun to send their parents a prank text at break time saying there had been 'an incident at the school, but don't worry I am ok'. Followed a little later with one that said 'April Fool!'. We had a call from a frantic parent who was at work, had been in a meeting when the first text came through and in the time between that and the one they sent 5 minutes later the battery on her phone died . She came out of her meeting, saw the phone needed charging, plugged it in, and the first message flashed up. Can you imagine?!
Well, tomorrow is the Eclectic Keepsakes crop and I have bags to pack, photos to print, sandwiches to make. Ooooh I wonder what flavour cup cake it will be this month? I think we will be learning different ways to make flowers etc to decorate a linen bag, big enough to transport 12 x 12 pages and papers. That could be a lot of flowers! So, thimbles at the ready .....
