Waiting on Wednesday . . . and waiting, and waiting . . .

Ah, April Fool's Day, and all our thoughts turn to silly pranks. I've come up with some great ones over the years but, alas, they always fall flat upon execution. So when I heard about SIR JOHN HARGRAVE'S MISCHIEF MAKER'S MANUAL, I thought there's help for me yet! Geared toward "Young Adults" I figured there had to be something in there that I could pull off.

Double alas! It's not due out till June! Once again, the joke's on me.




Product Description From Amazon:
This is the definitive guide to pranking and mayhem. Written in the style of a training manual, but with hilarious illustrations, this book is broken up into five sections. The “Basics” shows kids how to find a pranking partner and how to pull simple pranks like making crank calls. “Prank Moves” explains how to pull pranks at places like home, school, or camp. “Do-It-Yourself” demonstrates things like putting a real worm inside an ice cube. “Experts Only” covers such advanced pranks as how to fake an alien landing. And “Recipes” gives step-by-step instructions on how to bake tuna cookies.

My kids usually pull pranks on me but they forgot to today. LOL.

Last year my son took all the Eggo waffle boxes out of the freezer and pasted some other label on them and when he complained that there were no waffles and I went out to the freezer to look (knowing that I had a huge stash in there) I actually thought that someone stole the waffles from the garage.

He got me good!

I love a nice shiny new blog to visit! Welcome!

Bart King has a book called The Pocket Guide to Mischief that's sort of a similar idea to this one. Very cute book.

I think my son would love this book. He is something of a prankster himself. I will have to keep my eyes open for this one when it comes out. Thanks.
