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. ;)
