  • I dont participate. I have no issue with pranks but its my SD birthday and my best friends birthday and it seems those over trump the "fools" part of the day!!

  • Nothing so far this year. I'm not good at coming up with stuff, but can pull them off if someone else feeds me ideas! FIL has gotten me bad a few different years. I've pulled 1 mean one - my dad's a locksmith, and knew we only had 1 key for our back door. I called him one day, said I'd quick run the garbage out to the can, and the kids locked me out. He lives 20 miles away so I had to tell him rather quickly I was joking - he had fallen for it and was about ready to head over!

    A couple FIL's pulled on me - the year DH & I were dating (just engaged) I was working at a c-store that did pizzas & broasted chicken w/ potatoes on weekend nights. I was cooking and the clerk came back with a massive order - like more food than we had. I was freaking out, cussing, etc, and FIL2b came around the corner laughing so hard he could hardly get a breath, said April Fools, I cussed him out for bothering me under stress, he said April Fools

  • (cont) the order was his joke, etc, and I hit him! I was so mad! He just hugged me though. Another - I forget which child was a baby, but I had them in the walker eating - phone rang, it was FIL, he sounded awful, said he'd fallen down the stairs & couldn't get up, MIL was at work, etc. I called DH because he was outside, told him to go check on FIL. DH didn't answer though (should have been my first clue...). So I quick ran outside, left the kiddo in the walker, ran into DH at FIL's back door, cussed him out for not answering his phone because his father was laying on the floor with who-knows-what wrong, ran in the house & down the stairs, no FIL...rounded the corner and he was standing there laughing his fool a$$ off. I stormed out, ran home, baby wasn't crying but was mad & wouldn't even look at me, wouldn't finish eating, nothing, because I'd left.

    That's just 2 of the ... 6 I think, that FIL has pulled on me.
