Wa-hoo! It’s April!
And about time! 🙂
I hope those of you who celebrate had a happy Easter and are enjoying your sugar coma from all those chocolate eggs and jelly beans!
And speaking of jelly beans, I’d like to report the disturbing news that somehow pink won the poll on Friday. Apparently the jelly bean connoisseurs didn’t show up to vote or the winner would have been red, black, or at least orange! Ack! What desperate times we live in when pink jelly beans can come out on top!
(And before all you devoted pink voters get riled up, I’m just funnin’ you – I like pink too 🙂 They are certainly better than green, purple and white! :))
Talking about jelly beans makes me think of sweet things and that makes me think of Short & Sweet which is so handy because guess what day this is? Monday Short & Sweet Day! (And look at this beautiful creation I have just in time – an updated Short & Sweet badge!!! :))

It is also April Fools Day. I was going to suggest that we all write a story about April Fools Day… but then I remembered I already did that 🙂 Plus writing a whole entire story might be a little more like a Long & Agonizing 🙂 So I have a back-up plan.
(It is important to always have a back-up plan. I think that might be part of the Boy Scout Motto or something – doesn’t it sound like it should be? Ooh, or maybe the Spy Motto! :))
So ANYway, if you would please stop nattering on about ridiculous mottos!, here shall be our Short & Sweet for Monday April 1, 2013:
Write (in the comment section) a fun (not mean) prank a kid could play for April Fools Day.
Very sweet 🙂
The prank might spark a story idea for you… or for someone else who reads it… or someone else’s prank might spark an idea for you!
Turning the clocks ahead one hour so that the rest of the family thinks they overslept and rushes around like nuts!
An older sibling telling a younger sibling it’s Backwards Day – they have to walk backwards, put their clothes on backwards, eat and drink backwards, etc 🙂
Now you try!
(And I didn’t say it was a GOOD back-up plan! :))
Happy April Fools Day Everyone! 🙂
