Sweet Revenge – April Fools!

I have some amazingly smart and funny friends, who also happen to be great writers. Fortunately for me, several of them have really engaging blogs, so even when I don’t get the chance to talk to them regularly, I can read about Sherri, Elle and Angel’s exploits (just to name a few!).

So, yesterday I read this absolutely hilarious post from Sherri’s blog… I had to repost it here for my friends. If you keep reading, promise me you’ll take note: THIS IS NOT ABOUT ME. I am NOT pregnant (nor do I hope to be ANY time soon, in case you’re wondering).

Ok… moving on. This might be the funniest April Fool’s Day piece of revenge I’ve ever heard. To frame the story for you, Sherri & her husband John had a precious baby girl, Ally Grace, in October. So, they are still adjusting to the wonders – and challenges – of being first time parents. Enjoy – Sherri, you are a genius!

Sweet April Fools Day Revenge from Baby D’s Debut by Sherri D

Someone forgot to tell John that it’s really NOT cool to call your wife the morning of April Fools Day and tell her that you’ve been in a car accident.

Let me just replay the conversation for you:

John:  Hey babe, I got in a car accident on my way to work.  Yeah, this lady cut out in front of me, and I swerved into another car to miss her.  They’re telling me I have a broken arm and have to go to the hospital.


Me:  Oh my gosh, are you okay?  Which hospital?  And how will you be able to help me with Ally Grace if you have a broken arm?  Oops, did I just say that outloud?




Me:  You’d better sleep with one eye open, because I AM COMING FOR YOU WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT IT!

Later, as I was plotting my revenge, my friend Jenny weighed in with the brilliant idea to pretend I was pregnant.  At first, I thought “no way, he will NEVER fall for that.” Which may or may not be a result of my inability to keep a straight face, and my tendency to giggle like a schoolgirl anytime I’m trying to prank someone. 

(It may or may not ALSO be due to the fact that I’ve tried pulling this one before.)

Anyway, then Jenny said, why don’t you ask one of your pregnant friends to take a test FOR you? And then I said, GENIUS.  Because it enabled me to provide him with this:

(Yes, it IS a positive pregnancy test, and yes it IS laying on my kitchen counter. Oops.)

Now here’s how THAT conversation went:

Me:  (Shaky voice–I so deserve an Oscar) Hey babe?  Um, can you look at something?  I was feeling kinda funny so I took a pregnancy test….Is it just me, or is that a plus sign in that window? 

John:  What?  Um, no.  I mean, those things can be wrong, right?  It’s really faint, so it probably doesn’t count.  (Grabbing keys) Let me run to the store and get a couple of those digital ones.  (This is how I KNOW he was freaked out, since Mr. Smart Saver NEVER lets me spend money on those “fancy” digital ones.  Ahem.)

Me:  (Slightly hysterically) WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO?!?!?!? 

John:  (Hugging me) Oh babe, it’s going to be fine….don’t worry!


John:  AHHHHHHHHHHHH (Tickling me until I screamed for mercy, with Jackson bravely running over to rescue me from the obvious torture that I was experiencing).

It. Was. Priceless.

I would like to thank Jenny for the brilliant plan, and Betsy for allowing the use of her pregnant urine.  And I would also like to thank the Academy……

Oh wait.
