Have you ever been an April fool?

My baby fooled me; she was due on April 1, but she came on March 19. It was a total surprise. I wasn't even home at the time; I had to drive back home at 2 a.m. to go to the hospital.

I can always sense people, but this one time my ex-girlfriend played an April Fools' joke on me. She was making all of these drastic decisions all of the sudden. She got a job transfer to North Carolina, was buying a mansion there and her boyfriend proposed to her. I kind of believed her. It went on for about 15-20 minutes and then she said, "April Fools!"

My husband proposed to me on April Fools' Day. And I said yes. If I had said no, he would have said, "April Fools." We've been married five years. I don't know who the joke was on.

My dad gets my sister and I every year on April Fools' because he gets up really early every day due to his commute. So when he calls us in the morning, we are just waking up and don't remember that it is April Fools' Day.

I have. My mom asked me to write down the winning lottery ticket numbers and I gave her the wrong winning lottery numbers making her think she won. I kept her going for about 15-20 minutes. But it was only a small jackpot.
