Friday Blog Hop-April Fools!

The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy-For-Books and  is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word!  This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books!  It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read!

This week's question is:

 "Since today is April Fool's Day in the USA, what is the best prank you have ever played on someone OR that someone has played on you?"

Ok, so when I was around 13 or 14 my cousins came up from California. Only, they didn't tell anyone they were coming. My older cousin had a 6 mo old baby that none of us had met yet. They left the baby on the porch, knocked the door and took off (it was summer, warm and we were clearly home as the garage was open). I opened the door to find a random infant on my porch. My mom FREAKED out! My brother and I were begging her to keep it. She was about to call the police when my cousin came back. My mom was so mad but I thought it was fun once I got over the fact that I wasn't getting a new little sister. 

Thanks for hopping by!

Hi Rachel! That is the greatest prank I have ever heard of - brilliant! I would have hyperventilated if I'd open the door and seen a little baby:) I'm your newest follower and I hope you have a great weekend!

At first I wasn't going to participate in this week's Book Blogger Hop. I'm not even sure why.

But here I am. And I'm glad! To dispel any false impressions people may have had about me being a old, stodgy fuddy-duddy I'm happy to share some of my very best pranks with you.

Highlights include - low-grade explosives, eggs and salt shakers. Get all the side-splitting details over on my blog -

They date back to my younger years as a Brooklyn boy which brings about some introspection.

I'm going to go pull some pranks today. Look out world! I'm coming out of prankster retirement!

That was a little risky leaving after they left the baby on the porch. What if the police would have come and taken the baby. Yikes.

I am stopping by from the blog hop.

Hope you have a fun blog hop.

Stop by my blog if you like to see my answer.
