for the record

I am not a fan of April Fool's Day. In fact I hate most pranks. There I said it, I basically hate fun. And here are my reasons why...

//I get embarrassed really easily if too much unwanted attention is on me. I get red and splotchy and uncomfortable and I hate it. 

//I hate not being in control. Pranks on me are the opposite of control.

//Ever since I was little I have disliked watching other people do things that are awkward and uncomfortable. I would even hide behind a pillow while watching Full House if the girls were up to no good.

//Brad watches this show Impractical Jokers. Worst show on TV. The show is pretty much a group of friends pranking each other and seeing who can get the most embarrassed in front of strangers. That is my nightmare. It is like April Fools daily. Ew. 

//I hate the stupid people on facebook that pretend to be pregnant or engaged for a day or something equally as stupid and unoriginal.


Basically what I am saying is don't prank me today, don't joke with me today, don't tell me you're having a baby when you're not, and Bradley don't you even think about pretending to propose to me today or I will cut you.

No Cheers for April Fools!

I watch Impractical Jokers and cringe.

I hate pranks. I'm staying away from Facebook today because I'll just get mad.

i'm the same - i don't like practical jokes. so what i do: i pretend like nothing phases me so it's no fun for them. the resting bitch face helps a lot too :D

I've been trying to think of something to do to Tyson all morning, I lack creativity in the prank dept.

Oh dear, I hope Brad proposes. I really do... not!

Helene in Between said...

you win today with these gifs. but totally agree, I hate pranks, and it's not funny to pretend to be engaged or pregnant, ever.

I love the show Impractical Jokers! I hate being pranked but I don't mind watching it happen to others.
I'm with you on the engagement thing - if John fake proposed to me today I would kill him. Dead.

Kasey Lynne said...

Who's idea was it to make up this stupid holiday anyways?!?!

Kay said...

I also dislikes April Fools day, so this is pretty much spot on. Also, so much Michelle Tanner and I love it!

Ashley said...

I totally agree with you... and Michelle Tanner. Duh. Pranks are for the birds.

Fairy Princess Jord said...

I'm just not into coming up with pranks, I'm not funny and it's too much pressure.

Kalyn V said...

Haha I played pranks on my roommates in college..... one of them got really mad when I had a cup of water on the bathroom door and it fell on him. But he got over it!

Nadine Lynn said...

Yes to all of this!!! I hate pranks and anything associated with them as well! I too turn all red and splotchy when I get embarrassed, or angry, or sad. Just awful!

You win for all the Michelle GIFs too!!

Ashley Migneault said...

I get SO MUCH second hand embarrassment in pranking situations. I'm basically just staying away from Facebook today haha.

Lauren said...

I'm not a good prankster and I am usually pretty gullible but I think I have caught the few that came my way today... and any guy who fake proposes is just plain MEAN! I would be so mad!

Anna said...

People fake propose? What?!

Rachel said...

hahaha--I can't get too mad at pranks being married to Angel...they're a part of everyday life...even at work, his manager signed his birthday card with "please, no pranks today Angel." because Angel doesn't prank for April Fool's day...he pranks for every day.
But I would probably break up with a guy who prank-proposed.

Melissa said...

OOOOF yes. SO many stupid prank statuses yesterday. It made me want to punch ALL the faces.

Rachael Loomis said...

This is why I am such a scaredy cat. All day err day. I jump at anything and blush as red as an apple from embarrassment. I was lucky enough to get by April Fools with zero pranks though, holla!

Jess said...

April Fools Day is ridiculous. By this age nothing is funny anymore and, really, who falls for the pregnancy scares and engagements on that date.

Shane Prather said...

So true! I agree, worst holiday ever :)

Michelle said...

EXACTLY. I hate April Fools for every one of those reasons.

This is a great information for fun loving people.

This is reality that April fool's day must not be given to pranks but it must be for fun in constructive ways like having good time with others. You have good collection of prank reactions and i must consider them one of the most 11 reactions of pranks.
