I have a special spot in my heart for April Fool's Day and am sharing some of my own experiences with pranks in hopes that you'll laugh and maybe get ideas for yourself.
After my Dad's fiasco with the toilet, my Mom walked downstairs unknowingly about to become the next subject to my schemes. She went to the sink to wash her hands before she started making breakfast. She flipped the faucet on and was greeted with water spraying straight at her stomach. She was startled and immediately shut the faucet off which stopped the water. She looked all around her (including up at the ceiling) and bellowed,
"Where is that water coming from?"
She wasn't fully awake yet, so she turned the faucet back on and was greeted with yet another stream of cold water. She shut the faucet off again, looked around once more and noticed her booby trap.
You see, our sink (like many of yours). has a sprayer. If you put a rubber band around the base of the sprayer, it will automatically spray the person who turns the faucet on. This is probably my all-time favorite prank because, unless you're super observant, it works almost every time. I've been pranked with this one myself- it's classic and SO funny. The sink in our newest apartment doesn't have a sprayer- I noticed it when we toured the apartment and I've been bummed ever since. Oh well.
One of you will just have to pull the prank for me on your own sink. Just don't do it if whoever is on the receiving end of the water is wearing something nice :)
Have you ever pranked someone with this? Or gotten pranked by it?
