Anyway, I awoke with a start by because our ever ready security people cut a thief and I was running a fever. When I got over the shock of the theft noise, I made it to the toilet and I remembered this to be a good time to April fool my husband.
Our male cat Scofield had taken ill the previous day. We had to get the Vet to safe him. So, it was natural to run back to my husband on his sleeping bed and scream “LD, Scofield can’t move o, he has thrown up everywhere again”. Poor LD, he dashed off and ran to where Scofield was to see for himself. The cat just lied there, so he went further to examine the floor to see the vomit and at that point, I calmly told him April Fool…..
Our friend and flat mate too woke up to see me folded up in the living room. After I told her I was not feeling well, I dropped the bomb shell that Yar’adua our honourable president just resigned because he couldn't deal with so much corruption that plague our country and he felt he had failed US! My friend Seyi bought this story hook, line and sinker. She felt so sad about everything that she started providing alternatives that Yar’adua should have considered before taking the drastic step.
Well, I gently told her fool… she slapped my back before she remembered I wasn’t feeling well.April
I would have had much fun if I had made it to work to April fool my boss and others. Don’t worry she won’t sack me.
So, I have to wait one year to have a go at it again.
