Pick one topic:
1. April birthstone: diamond- write about it's history, gem info, whether or not you like them, or if this is your birthstone!

2. April Fool's Day: Do you participate? Tell us about a joke you played on someone, or if one has been played on you. What do you think about this "day"?

3. What is your favorite gemstone and why?

Have fun choosing your topic! Cindy

Being the jokster that I am, with a side of sarcasm to boot, something fun always comes to fruition on April Fool's Day, also known as All Fool's Day, and our 11 year wedding anniversary!

As soon as I read choice number two, "Tell us about a joke you played on someone", a trick I played on our then middle school daughter, who is now in college, flooded my cebrial forefront..

It was a weekend day, and spur of the moment I decided to rush into her bedroom, turn on the lights, and wake her up telling her that her alarm must not have gone off and she was going to be late for school.

As she very sleepily jolted out of bed and started to put some clothes on, she suddenly realized it was not a school day!  Upset, but happy to go back to bed for a few more hours, we only laughed together many years later.  I laughed on and off all day long, each time I thought about it, and then again just now. 

Think maybe I will call her early April Fool's morning and give it another try!

Fun fact:  In Scotland, April Fool's Day is actually celebrated for two days. The second day is devoted to pranks involving the posterior region of the body. It is called Taily Day. The origin of the "kick me" sign can be traced to this observance.


  1. fun post, Re! I would hate to be woken up too early in the morning. But then the joy of knowing more sleep awaited me, would flood my senses.

  2. Very funny story! If I wasn't so frightened of what might happen to me, I might have the gumption to try this with my partner lol! I think I would "roll out of bed" easier than he with this one.

    I loved the "cebrial forefront.." -- fantastic!!!
