This man--my husband, Chris--is a wonderful man. I've said it a thousand times and I'll say it over and over again...he's a saint to have married me. On days like these, I need to go public and just say that up front. :)
See, I spent the better portion of the last 4 days setting up my April Fool's Prank for him. He's turning 40 in a few weeks, and is completely paranoid about a surprise party. Of course, I couldn't let that go to waste--oh no way...
I took the liberty of creating 38 different mock Surprise 40th Birthday invitations just for him. Each one includes an embarrassing photo of him and hilarious details about an outrageous blowout in his honor--and I have arranged for him to get them throughout the whole day. One by one, he'll open them and read all about another possible party thrown in his honor. Is it made up--or is it real??? It will drive him insane. The perfect way to start off the celebration of his birthday month, right??
Why 38 invitations? I numbered them all, and told him there were 40 and I thought it would drive him over the edge, looking for the two that are "lost."
And you know what? One of the invitations is actually real. He has no idea.
And I can't stop laughing. I've giggled more about this in the last week than you can imagine. I've enlisted the ideas and help from friends and family, our kids and our parents--you name it. It will go down in our history as the best prank I've ever pulled off. Feather in my cap today--thank you very much.
It should be noted, this is divine payback. I turned 40 last year, and I had my turn. I think this feels so good because I normally stink at this kinda thing and this time...this ONE TIME...I am going to bask in the glory of pulling something off.
Thanks for letting me spill it here. And honey, if you read this, you can stop looking for the other 2 now. I love you to pieces...
Happy April Fool's Day everyone!!!
