April Fool's Day

A few days ago I gave you some ideas for pranks. Today, I did some. I practice what I preach!

Every year I play a joke or two on my wife Robin. She'd be disappointed if I didn't. This year, I played two pranks. Robin laughed at the first one and gasped at the second.

First, I replaced an image of the two of us in a framed photo on her desk with a picture of Pee-Wee Herman. (See below.) We both love Pee-Wee, especially his first film ("Pee-Wee's Big Adventure") which was directed by Tim Burton. It's a masterpiece of cinematic art.

Second, I stuck a flat pillow with an image of a pug's head on it in our medical cabinet. When Robin opened the cabinet-door to get her toothbrush, she was surprised!

  1. HA! I love the pug pillow. Early Tim Burton movies are the best.

  2. I normally don't like pranks of any kind, but these were great! Especially since Pee-Wee and pugs are two of my favorite things!

    1. No and that made it even funnier when she finally did.

  5. Ha ha! LOVE the pug...you knew I would.

    I've been having lots of difficulty lately commenting on anyone's blog that is on Blogger. I'm hoping this works as I couldn't comment anywhere yesterday.

    1. Reading you loud and clear. YOU were the reason I bought the pug pillow. Fooling Robin was only a side-benefit I came up with after bringing it home.

  6. Paul Reubens (Reubenfeld) was born in Peekskill, NY. I look for connections where ever they may lead

    1. The world is a small place. We only have to look deep enough to see connections.
