Book Blogger Hop and Follow Friday

Book Blogger Hop

"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?"

My Answer:
Well, I'm not much of a prankster nor do people really go after me on April Fool's Day, so I don't have a good answer to this question. However, I do know that my younger sister got my mom with quite a few things last year. She put something (saran wrap? a rubber band? I can't remember) around the kitchen sink faucet, so that when my mom turned the sink on all of the water squirted up at her. She also got a detention slip from the band teacher saying that she was always late to class and a big disruption. My mom freaked out over that (especially since she has three girls, all of whom are perfectly well behaved and had never been disciplined in school before). Of course, the band teacher was just helping my sister trick my mom!

Q. What is the book that you really don't want to admit to loving?? 

There aren't really any books that I would never admit to loving if I actually love it. However, I guess since I like to read classics and literary works, I'm a little slow to admit to loving the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich. But we all need some quirky humor, right?!


  1. Hi! Just hopping over from Parajunkee's Blog Hop! I love Stephanie Plum! Or more acurately, I love her 'guys'! Here's mine! I'm a new follower!

  2. I'm not a prankster either, but I am the butt of other people's jokes quite often. I'm just gullible that way.

    Glad to have found you via the Hop!

  3. Oh the rubber band around the kitchen sprayer! That's a classic one. I'm not a big pranker either but I had a great one pulled on my whole family once.

  4. 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!
