I am one of April fool’s day’s biggest fans. Is there a day greater than this in the whole year? Yeah, I know there is Christmas, thanksgiving and all that but I love the idea of one day every year being set aside just to play pranks on others. It has always been a tradition for me to play some of the most creative pranks on the most gullible individuals. These are the kind of people who wake up on April Fools Day 2022 and not realize what day is it. I mean they just think of it as a normal day just like yesterday.
Among the April Fools’ days I recall the most is one that took place about twelve years ago. I was a senior in high school and this particular one was on a Monday school day. Everyone among the student population was very aware that it was April Fools’ Day and that you should completely not trust anyone at all. Therefore, the chances of playing a good prank on any student were very slim. Everyone was on the look out for lies, even the juniors.
So I sat down to ask myself who was the most gullible of everyone in the school. That when I had such a great idea! The teachers! They obviously did not pay any attention to April Fools’ Day. But how was I to prank a teacher? That would have been too daring but would surely earn me point among the students.
That is when I remembered this rumor among the senior students that Mr. Suelz, the history teacher and Miss Morgan, still another history teacher were spotted passionately kissing in the hall way one Friday evening after school was over and everyone had gone home. My guess was that they had a secret affair brewing in between them and that the school administration had no knowledge of it at all.
That sounded like a good recipe for some April Fools’ Day fun. I immediately made my way to a telephone and I called the principal’s office.
“Hello. Is this Mr. Butler?”
“Please could you come to the hospital? There has been an emergency. Thank you.”
I hang up and it did not take long before Mr. Butler stepped out of his office, into his car and off he drove. I knew it was only a matter of time before he knew it was a prank. So I needed to get on with my plan fast.
I made my way to the way to the principal’s office, of course not forgetting to bend over when I reached the secretaries desk so that I may not get spotted. Have I mentioned that I am very good in voice imitation? I even think I may be the second Mrs. Doubtfire. Anyway, back to my story. I picked up the phone and sounding exactly like Mr. Butler, I summoned Mr. Suelz and Miss Morgan into the office.
You must be thinking I was very stupid to call them into the office for they would easily recognize me. But the good thing bout that office is that is had this huge leather arm chair that swung side to side. So instead of facing the desk, I faced the wall as they walked in.
“Yes Mr. Butler? What did you want to see us for” I heard Suelz’ baritone voice as soon as they stepped in.
“How do you two feel about the issue of romance in the office without drawing up official notification papers?”
I got straight to the point and I must say that totally caught them off guard because of the pin drop silence that followed.
“Urghmmhh,” stammered Morgan. “He he…he was the one….”
“What! Come on. Give me a break! You are the one who seduced me into that!” muttered Suelz
They tension that had suddenly built up on them caused them to start arguing between themselves of who was to blame for this. I almost burst into laughter listening to my two teachers acting all scared and arguing between each other about who was to face the consequences.
I knew I was about to laugh out lout loud and I had to dismiss them telling them that they need to write an official report of their relationship before facing the consequences. As soon as they left the office I also stealthily stepped out to avoid being spotted and as I went to class in laughter I passed Miss Morgan getting into the women’s room in tears.
To cut a long story short, I don’t know what followed after that. But before you blame me for breaking up a happy couple put together by cupid, Mr. Suelz and Miss Morgan are currently married and have two kids.
