April Fool's Day

All day long, I've been looking around, just waiting for something to have been done. I carefully tasted the sugar in the bowl before putting some in my coffee. I checked the kitchen sprayer before turning on the water. I looked at door knobs suspiciously before touching them. All in preperation for something. Some joke pulled on me by my 2 jokester daughters.
I've even been looking at my friend's tweets and facebook status a bit sideways. Ya never know. Is it truth or a joke?

When I was a kid, I loved April Fools day. I would put salt in the sugar bowl, tape the kitchen sprayer and put vaseline on the door knobs. I kinda got in some trouble for going overboard.
A few years ago, me and the husband told the girls I was pregnant. They fell for it hook, line and sinker. Never laughed so hard in my life. I don't know what was funnier, their looks of disbelief about having a "baby brother or sister" or realizing their parents have sex!

The one I am really worried about pulling a prank is Mary, the youngest. She is a bit devious. This morning I said "Happy April Fools Day."
She kind of gave me that "I'm thinking of doing something bad" grin. And said "Hey Mom, SNAKE!"

I'm terrified of snakes. I don't mean just a little "ewww... they're slimey, weird." I mean full on panic attack, almost faint, can't see them on tv or even see a fake plastic toy one! I will flip out!

I'm afraid she will bring home a fake one and I will end up passing slap out! God help me!
