april fools day We all know that April Fools day is approaching. Are you going on offense or defense? For those of you on offense, here is a list of fun pranks to get your wheels turning.

If you are more of a defense-type person, here are some tips for being punked-free on Monday!

1. Don’t over-react to anything that happens on April Fools Day. If it is a real emergency – different story. However, if your Oreo’s are filled with toothpaste and not the tasty cream, pretend you don’t notice. That is a practical joker’s worst nightmare.

2. Maybe do a double check in the mirror in the morning. Actually, do a full on turn about in front of the mirror to check for any unusual postings on your back.

3. Make and bring your own lunch and snacks to work/school. You don’t want any crazy food ending up on your plate!

4. Check all the volume levels in your car and on your computer/phone before turning them on or watching anything with volume.  Just in case.

5. Don’t let your belongings leave your sight.

6. Put a mirror near your computer screen so you can see behind you while working. This might be slightly overboard.


Ever wonder why there would be a day designed to torture the unassuming? So did I, so I searched for an answer.
