April Confusion

The first of April is the day we remember what we are the other 364 days of the year. ~Mark Twain

April Fool's Day is tomorrow! Time to get in touch with your Inner Brat.

Here are a few suggestions…..

Rise and Shine Confusion
Make getting dressed fun! Use a basting needle and thread to sew your victim's underwear together in the drawer. Then stuff tissues in the toes of his shoes. Lurk in the hallway and laugh.

Breakfast Confusion
If your family or roommates drink milk from a cardboard container, add a few drops of food coloring to the milk the night before. Then switch the inside bags of the cereal boxes, say the Captain Crunch with the Special K. If you want to get really creative, dig holes in various pieces of fruit and insert gummy worms.

Bathroom Confusion
Unravel the toilet paper a few turns and write "Help, I'm trapped in a toilet paper factory!" on the TP (or on a slip of paper you insert in the roll), then roll it back up again. The next person to use the bathroom will get a laugh.

Mouse Confusion
This is a good one if your victim spends a lot of time on the computer, especially if they're right-handed. Change their mouse buttons to the left-handed setting, so that click is on the right and right-click is on the left. The reason this doesn’t work as well on a left-handed person is because they've probably already changed the settings and will know right away what is wrong if you put it back to the default setting. But a clueless right-hander will have a harder time figuring it out. To change the settings on Windows, go to the Control Panel, then to the mouse settings and check the option to swap the Left and Right Mouse Button settings. Don't worry, it's easily changed back again.

Cookie Confusion
For moms with a lot of time on their hands (does one exist??): Scrape the filling out of some Oreo cookies and replace with white toothpaste. Yuk!

Have Fun!

Until next Friday...
