I was right about the April Fool pranking yesterday.

#1 Son's friends struck first, with him waking up to find the car wrapped in plastic wrap.

#2 Son climbed on the roof to throw water on his sisters, who got him back with water later in the day when his back was turned.

They ended it with #2 Son putting about half of his belongings into Bigger Girl's room when she wasn't here to see it. That prank backfired, however, when he had to drag all of the stuff back later.

Today's laugh for national humor day: Did you hear about the 83 year old lady who talked her way out of a speeding ticket by telling the officer she had to get there before she forgot where she was going? :)
