I have never been a big fan of April Fool's Day. Probably because I am gullible and fall for the silly jokes. The other reason is . . .
April Fool's + High School = Torture
As a teacher you check a few dates every year because they bring the freak out in high school kids. Most days they can be a little strange anyway, but days like Homecoming, Halloween, Valentine's Day, and April Fool's make the strangeness fester and explode like a bad zit (or a bad metaphor, lol!).
So it is April Fool's and I am at school and I am bracing for the torture, when our lovely athletic trainer comes wandering in.
Mrs. B: Hello, lovely athletic trainer!
Miss Lovely: Mrs. B, I need ALL of your students ALL day to come to the gym and take the Presidential Fitness test.
Mrs. B: What? You want to take ALL my students and make them run and do push ups?
Miss Lovely: Yes.
Mrs. B: Is this an April Fool's joke?
Miss Lovely: Nope. I will take them to the gym and make them run.
It was about this time that I heard the angels singing. So here I sit, nice and peaceful on an April Fool's Day. I have seen a few pranks here and there, but they mainly consisted of boys pointing another boy's shirt and then poking him in the nose.
I hope your April Fool's is peaceful as well!!
