I’m kinda proud of this.

My mom is a great fan of the April Fool’s prank, but she is notoriously hard to trick, so I had to do a little bit of preparation to catch her. The kitchen faucet handle over at my parents house has been a little loose for a couple of weeks, and  I have taken the opportunity several times in the last week to pester them about replacing it “before it breaks” when I visit…   [There is, of course, nothing really wrong with said faucet]

So today, I put the rinse sprayer handle down into the sink and waited for Mom to walk into the kitchen, then while I talked to her, I grabbed a cup and pretended to get a cup of water, then grabbed the hidden spray nozzle and proceeded to spray water up out of the sink onto myself, the wall, floor and Mom [just a bit] and began bellowing for her to “Get a towel… The stupid handle is broke” or faux-irritated words to that effect

In a panic she said, “Can you hold it while I run to the [linen] closet?”

At which point I turned, soaking wet, dripping water and grinning from ear to ear and said: “No… April Fool’s!!”

    No. After an exhausting 2 1/2 minutes perusing Google that was the closest image I could find to what I was describing.
    :Bites lip, looks earnestly into the camera, and …inexplicably… adopts an Arkansas accent:
    I did not April Fools prank that woman… the one in the photo.
