I came over to the convent this afternoon to tie up a few loose ends (including checking email and brushing my teeth) before starting my shift at the reception desk. I would not be off again until ten.
While I was here, I decided to look for an item Sr. Elaine had offered to me, stating it was in her top drawer. Happily, I found it without too much effort. At this point, the thought crossed my mind of switching her drawers around as an April Fools trick. Instead, I admonished myself to “save some for next year.”
Throughout this day, I have been up to a bit of mischief, here and there. I suppose you might say I am acting more like a child than a grown woman, but oh well, April 1st comes but once a year.
Having done my research for fresh (and harmless) April Fools tricks, I have been victimizing others at St. Anne’s by:
- Putting a piece of tape on the computer mouse sensor so it doesn’t work
- Drawing (realistic-looking) spiders down the toilet paper roll (using a sharpie for the head and fine felt [or regular] pen for the legs works best)
- Distributing old copies (from various extra copies from months and years gone by) of our monthly newsletter to residents – instead of the current issue (which will go out tomorrow)
I have a couple of other ideas in mind for next year! I’d love to share, but I don’t dare – someone might read this and remember it on April 1st of 2020.
In the meantime, I have to hope that no one notices the specks of black marker on my hand, left behind from the toilet paper trick. I want them to be surprised to see the spiders! 🙂
