My favorite has to be the one my older sister and I jointed pulled on my younger sister:
The year was 1989. New Kids on the Block were all the rage (see not much has changed in 20 years!) and my 8-year-old sister was certain Joey McIntyre would one day be her husband. She would kiss his Tiger Beat poster each night before bed and pen constant love poems to him she was certain were hand-delivered. She was, to put it mildly, obsessed.
My clever older sister & I took full advantage of that fact when planning our prank. We recorded a portion of a local radio station and then put our acting chops to the test as we interrupted the prerecorded radio bit to act as news broadcasters reporting some breaking news: Joey McIntyre had been killed instantly in a car accident. It was tragic. The whole world was mourning (don’t laugh, there for a few years a good majority of teen girls from around the globe truly would have mourned his death!).
Because our disguised broadcaster voices were so believable, she had no reason to question the validity of the report. She sobbed for hours. She curled into a ball & rocked herself in her room as big crocodile tears streamed down her face. And while we did feel a bit sorry for her, it was only after our mother threatened to ground us that we giggled and screamed April Fools! She was 8 years old people. She had no idea what that meant. It took hours of explaining and reassuring before she finally believed us. Want to know the first thing she did once she had recovered? Wrote him a love poem of gratitude because he was still alive. It. Was. Awesome.
Now your turn. I want to hear your best pranks. Or pranks gone wrong. Or pranks done to you by others. We promise we won’t laugh at you (we’ll laugh with you!).
