I'm not doing a prank post. Frankly, everything I've put out there is so, well, out there, that you'd probably believe anything I tell you.
Granted, I do love a good prank. I used to veeeerrrry gradually shift an old boss' carseats every time I moved his car, so he thought he was growing bigger or smaller, based on which side of the caterpillar's mushroom he'd eaten that morning. I also instituted a bathroom hall pass rule at an office, and, of course, there was the time I told my mom I was both gay and pregnant. (I had to wear clompy boots and eat a ton of pickles.)
Instead, I'll pass a hearty congratulations to my parents, Beth and Bill, who met at a party on this date many (many) years ago. I think meeting on April Fools' Day tells you anything you would ever need to know about my family. (If not, Factoid #2 is that my dad goes by Skeeter.)
In the comments, tell me something I could have said that would have been prankworthy. Also, tell me why people seem to have a preconception that I'm blonde.
