Every Friday, Jennifer from Crazy For Books sets up the Book Blogger Hop. It’s “a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word!”
This week’s question is: “Since today is April Fool’s Day in the USA, what is the best prank you have ever played on someone OR that someone has played on you?”
I really can’t recall ever playing a prank on someone or one that anyone’s played on me around or near April Fool’s Day. I’m pretty gullible though so I tend to believe a lot of things that people tell me during the rest of the year.
An example that stands out in my mind happens when I was a lot younger. There’s a food chain near where I live called Portillo’s that serves various American fast food and its decorations are similar to TGI Friday’s. One of the Portillo’s near me also has this display hanging from the ceiling that features a very realistic mannequin.
One day my father told me and my sisters that the mannequin was actually one of the restaurant workers hanging out and that if you looked closely you’d see him blinking. The next eight or so times that we went there, we looked and occasionally decided we did see him moving. And I think we were more disappointed than embarrassed when we finally figured out what was going on.
