When I was a high school student, I loved April Fool’s Day. Perhaps it’s because it marked the beginning of my birthday month and warmer weather. Or maybe I just like to prank people.
And chiiiild, did I have pranks. I had tricks up my sleeves for days on end, and laughed about said successfully pulled tricks all week. Isn’t it time that I pass on the wisdom? Yes. My gift to you on April Fool’s Day is five of the best April Fool’s prank for couples. Lay it on him, ladies!
The Door Pull
This is one of my favorite pranks that I pulled while attending Phillips Academy Andover. My minions and I tied together the door handles of two rooms. Both girls were in the room. Girl A yapping away on the phone and Girl B massacring “Real Love” by Mary J. Blige. Once the knot was tight, we inhaled and screamed, “FIRE!” Girl A stopped her chatting and Girl B her croaking. They began to pull. But the door wouldn’t budge! They continued to pull and once we heard cursing and a few sobs we untied the doors. Girl A and Girl B were set free to witness us crying from laughter. Cruel? Yes. I have more perspective as an adult. Just do this with your boo when he’s in the bathroom and have a friend pull the other door. Tell him you need to pee…badly. Let the magic happen.
If your man is like most of this generation, he’s obsessed with IG. Take over his Instagram for the day. Get his password, if you don’t know it already, and post a million selfies. The last pic should be an Instavideo where you scream, “April Fools!”
You’re always the chill girlfriend, so why not do what Andy did in “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days” and go berserk? Get mad at something minor. Throw your body on the floor. Sob. Heave. Laugh. He won’t know what hit him.
“Donate” His Clothes
You know that drawer full of t-shirts he always wear? Scare him right to his manly clothes by “donating” his tees to Goodwill. When he opens the dresser and finds it empty, he may just cry. Tell him the jig is up before then. Well, maybe make him sweat a little.
Mom’s Moving In
There’s nothing that will drive a man to tears than your mother. No matter how great she is or if he actually likes her, the thought of her moving in will freak him out. To make this convincing, have some suitcases out and some of her things laid out. And just when he doesn’t know what to do with himself you yell (all together now), “April Fool’s!” It may just be the best day ever – for you.
