Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop

Thanks to  Crazy-for-books for hosting this hop, I hope to hop on from time-to-time......I also found some new blogs and I am looking forward to knowing what others are reading and saying! 

"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?"

Actually, I was hoping our local weatherman was playing an April Fool's joke this morning because they are calling for rain/snow mix for today.  yuck!

My Answer: I think back to when I was a senior in High School  I had a really great English teacher first period. We all came into the classroom and sat down and he announced there was going to be a pop quiz today. He walked around with a green sheet of paper placing it upside down on our desks and told us not to look at it or start yet. Everyone in class groaned and then he said it was going to be a timed test now too and we had to get it done in five minutes or it will be an F. When he said "ready, start your test now",  we turned it over and it was a sheet of paper that said April Fool's on it.   I told my son this morning, who is a freshman in HS this year, to watch out for those prankster teachers.

Looking forward to reading what others have to say!   Have a great weekend.......


  1. 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!
