When April Fool's Day rolls around each year, everyone in our family is on high alert. There is no pulling the wool over anyone's eyes in this house! So there is no sense for me to come running inside and say to Kathy: "A tree just fell on your car!" She would laugh, and say: "Sure it did..." So there is little hope that I would get anywhere with the big lie. Then I was struck by a brilliant idea - I would try something subtle. I cut a black oval from a piece of black gaffer tape, and put it under my pocket - the pocket where I always carry my fountain pen. The funny thing was, I had to walk around for half an hour before Kathy noticed it! It was fun to watch her face change when she first saw it! Mission accomplished!
