Were You April Fooled?

So for the entire morning, I was going from one person to another at HQMC, trying to find out how this happened, what was on Guam that needed my presence. Nobody seemed to have a clue.

About the time I was ready to pull my hair out, my wife called to ask how my day was going. I broke the news to her about how my day wasn’t going so great and why. After I lamented for a while, she started laughing; then I noticed that everybody in my office was laughing, and I realized I’d been had.

My dear, sweet wife had planned the whole thing, gotten everybody in my section to go along with it, and even had gotten the guy who did the transfers to go along with it; she went to great lengths to give me an April Fool’s memory I’d never forget.

So, would any of you Week-Enders like to share some of your more unforgettable April Fool’s Day events? Or maybe you know of someone else who suffered at the hands of an “April Fooler.”

Share it here and maybe you’ll give some folks ideas; it’s never too early to start planning for next year…
