Jan and I were DEFINITELY in on it together. All the other mods knew about it too. We're sneaky devils, aren't we?

Sneaky devils for sure!

Well I'm claiming time zone difference for defense then. It shows March 31 for me. I NEVER would have fallen for it otherwise! There, so my never been fooled record stands, right!....Um...right?

Aah, fine...I was fooled...and you know what? I LIKED it!!

I posted it in the evening on the 31st because I don't get up early and wanted in here for the beginning of the day. That was dumb though.. lol

Oh you brat!! It was really fun though. You had me fooled and I've only once been fooled before, so you almost got another April Fool's Virgin... but not quite.

I worked in a factory as the receptionist. One of the "boys" called from up in the sales office to the reception desk and, putting on a fake voice, explained to me that He was Sergant Frank Lucasek from the Cambridge Fire Department, and that there had been a fire in the Panasonic microwave in my kitchen and that my apartment was on fire, with fire department on the scene. I asked him three times if he was joking and he said "he didn't joke about things that serious". After his third denial I flipped. I knew my X-DH was asleep in that apartment because he had worked the graveyard shift. The perpetrators of this cruel joke eventually, after calming me down and finding a tranquilizer somewhere to do so, had to drive me home to check on X-DH and my house before I could work again. The owners of the company almost fired the guys who did it. The boss even had someone drive me home because I was in no shape to drive.

I think this joke was really funny! No one was hurt or really upset and it was a good gag! Which of us does not want to test new yarn???

YOU GOT ME!!!

Don't worry about it, lots of people were fooled. That was what we'd hoped for.

Yep,I was fooled too. I studied the sample cap and wondered if the water would go through the gaps in the knitted stitch and how it would run off etc etc. Very good Aprils Fool Joke. But.... we will be on to you next year!

I think the joke your co-workers pulled was BAD! I would never do anything like that. So sad.

You're not alone. I think I would have been fooled by it too.

Maybe I should have been a con artist.
