APRIL FOOLS!

WELL, I HAVE FINALLY DONE IT! I OUT WITTED THE MASTER PRACTICAL JOKER ON THE BIGGEST DAY OF THE YEAR FOR CUT UPS EVERYWHERE. SOMEHOW I MANAGED TO DODGE THE WHIZZING BULLETS COMING MY WAY FROM MARK ALL DAY. HE WAS IN CAHOOTS WITH MY SWEET SISTER LAURA, ENLISTED THE HELP OF MY LOYAL COMPANION KIM, AND EVEN INVOLVED THE GUYS AT WORK TO TRY TO PULL ONE OVER ON ME.

JUST WHEN EVERYONE THOUGHT IT WAS SAFE TO LET THEIR GUARD DOWN...I GOT HIM! WE WENT TO DAIRY QUEEN FOR DINNER AFTER MASON'S BASEBALL GAME ALONG WITH MANY OTHER FAMILIES ON OUR BASEBALL TEAM. MANY OF WHICH WERE IN LINE WITH US WHEN MARK HANDED THE CLERK HIS DEBIT CARD. SHE LOOKED AT HIM AND SAID,
"YOUR CARD WAS DENIED". HE LOOKED HER AND SAID "WHAT" AND LOOKED AT ME AND SAID, "DO YOU THINK THE DUMPSTER COMPANY DRAFTED OUR ACCOUNT?" I JUST SHRUGGED MY SHOULDERS AND SAID "HOW WOULD I KNOW?" I COULD SEE THE WHEELS SPINNING IN HIS MIND TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT COULD HAVE GONE WRONG. WITH THE REMODEL AND ADDITION ON THE HOUSE IN FULL SWING IT IS QUITE AN ART TO MANAGING THE ACCOUNTS FOR ALL THE DRAFTS AND PAYMENTS THAT ARE BEING MADE. THE CLERK FINALLY SMILED AND SAID, "APRIL FOOL". THE LINE OF 2O OR MORE PEOPLE WAITING FOR THEIR LATE NIGHT MEAL ROARED IN LAUGHTER. WHAT MARK DID NOT KNOW WAS I CALLED DAIRY QUEEN ON MY WAY TO MEET HIM THERE AND GAVE THE SWEET GIRL HIS DESCRIPTION AND ASKED HER TO PLAY ALONG. SHE DID GREAT AND BROUGHT A LOT OF SMILES TO MANY FACES...EVEN MARK.

PATTI HAD THIS QUOTE ON HER BLOG TODAY. I LOVE IT! WHAT A GOOD REMINDER NOT TO TAKE OURSELVES TOO SERIOUSLY. A GOOD LAUGH AT OURSELVES IS GOOD FOR THE SOUL.
