April Fools and Why Taylor Swift Should Never Be Part of a Prank

So my dad came home last night and said he won Cubs tickets to opening day. (I wasn't not interested.) The tickets were for a luxury box. (I was mildly interested.) He said Taylor Swift is throwing out the first pitch and singing the national anthem. (I was definitely interested, but also a bit suspicious, since I know pretty much any news related to Taylor.) Then he proceeded to say she'll possibly make a stop by the luxury box. My mom got really excited (yeah, I'm turning her into a fan), but I was like, "Hold up."  I said, "It's April first.  Is this for real?"  Then my dad shouted "April Fools!" (and right in my face, to boot.) I was not amused.  Around our house, Taylor Swift should not be part of a prank because I adore her and her music so much.

My dad has proceeded to try and make it up to me (tonight, he brought me an apple pie square).  I've told him he still hasn't made up for pulling such a mean prank.  Any food he brings me only makes up for the luxury box (you get awesome food when you're in a luxury box at a Cubs' game).  He's got to be more creative to make up for the Taylor Swift stuff.

Aprils Fools Day usually isn't fun for me.  I don't mind harmless pranks (like hacking a friend's FB account) or when you tell your parents you got an F on a test (did that to my dad once) or switching the sugar and salt.  But when you pull a prank that could emotionally affect someone, well, I don't think that's cool.

So keep that in mind if you try to pull a prank on me next year. ;)

  1. LOL! I'm laughing really hard :) That was mean of him though :P

    Someone pulled an awful prank on twitter too..... So I get notifications when certain people tweet so I heard the little "ding" noise and looked over to see "I still can't believe that Harry and Taylor got back together!"
    The notifications don't show you the entire tweet, so I went to that person's profile and read the rest.
    "Happy April Fool's Day."
    I nearly had a heart attack though!

  3. Aw that's sad of your dad. Forgive him already. :) I agree, harmless jokes are cool but not when they affect you emotionally. That was mean what your dad did, if he knew how much you love Taylor Swift.

  4. Who would you like to see Taylor date?

    1. Either get back together with Taylor Lautner, date Adam Young (except he's unfollowed her on Twitter so I doubt any romance is happening there soon), or an average guy. Preferably a guy Swiftie.

    2. cool! Usually stars date other stars but it would be nice to hear one who dates an average person. :)

    3. Yeah. :) Although she did date Conor Kennedy, and he's more of a regular guy. (A bit too young for her, though...)
