Today, I was searching for an April Fool’s prank to play on my trophy hubby and was reminded of one I pulled a few years ago.
My daughter was fresh out of college and in the midst of looking for a teaching job. She sent out a gazillion resumes and went on a bazillion interviews. She was substitute teaching at different schools on a daily basis, and her phone was ringing off the hook.
We still had a home phone at the time, and though she used her cell phone for nearly all business activity, the occasional caller would ring the home phone.
So, on April 1st, I wrote a phone message and left it on the kitchen island for her.
“Mr. Lyon called about a job. He wants you to call him back. (248) 541-5717.”
She was all excited, anticipating a new position. I could hardly keep from laughing in her face.
If you dial that number, you will hear the other person say, “Hello. Detroit Zoo.”
“May I please speak with Mr. Lyon?”
You will hear the person on the other end say, “Excuse me?”
hahahahahahaha – I’m still laughing.
