Today? Do The Smirk


I love April Fools' Day. I wrote about our day last year, here.

Today?  I have the PERFECT, NO FAIL plan:

I'm doing The Smirk.

As in, this morning, when my husband pours his coffee-to-go into his travel mug, I'll say, "Enjoy your coffee..." ::smirk::

As in, when the kids come downstairs for breakfast, "Enjoy your oatmeal..."  ::smirk::

And when the lunches are packed I'll send them off with a paper bag in their hand, a peck on the cheek, and a whisper to the ear, "Enjoy your sandwich..."  ::smirk::

The town librarian who gets to see me first thing won't be left out, either,  "Here's the books I borrowed..." ::smirk::

The Smirk. To everyone and anyone that will cross my path today.

The best is yet to come: the ubercharming ultrafriendly sooooopernice welcoming gaggle of women at tonight's potluck, "Enjoy the coffee cake, ladies..." ::smirk::

I love today.

**Thanks to Mashable, for the inspiration for this post.

  3. The ::smirk:: Love it! I'm so stealing your idea tomorrow.

    I have a feeling my oldest daughter has all kinds of pranks lined up to play on me for April Fool's Day.

    Much better than hubby changing his relationship status on FB and me having to field all of the concerned friendds inboxing me.

  11. *snorty snort snot*

    Except, I'm traveling tonight.

    I really don't want the check-in attendant to say, "Have a nice flight!" ::smirk::

    I won't handle that well.

  16. Ooooh, good one! I told everybody we were having hotdogs for breakfast and they were ticked off when I said, "April Fools!" Good thing I didn't go with ice cream. It might have been war.

    Good luck with the gaggle at Potluck!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Now THAT's an effective strategy for April 1st if I've ever heard one!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Empress, I have no doubt this day rivals that of Christmas in your mind!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Fantastic plan! Please let us know how it turns out.

  20. Oh you cheeky girl. I hate April Foo's day but u almost made it fun. Just glad I am not close enough to get the smirk. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Love this. I can't even pretend to smirk because it's true. And smart. Efficient, even.

    And no one can accuse you of lying.
    Genius.

    ReplyDelete
  22. That is pure evil and I love it.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I have to say that I'm too gullible to enjoy April 1st. I tend to stay in the house, or avoid all eye contact if I must leave. You are the coolest. I am the foolest.

    ReplyDelete
  24. You are too freakin' funny. Glad I'm not going to that potluck.

    But enjoy the chocolate I sent you! Smirk. :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. You all are cracking me up. You'd better do this, at least, get one good one in.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Perfect. I'm doing this the rest of the evening!

    I won't smirking at my husband though, he hasn't quite recovered from my little ooops I'm pregnant April foolary. (I'm not, I'm too old and way too tired)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Genius. Probably the best of the day.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Ohhhhh, I really love the idea of just doing the smirk all day!! Hahaha!!! You just keep people guessing left and right. Why didn't I read this post earlier? I would've copied you.

    ReplyDelete
  29. you make me smirketh. Sadly I have a bad track record for pranks. I'm not so good. There was the one year though, when I was pregnant and I took a pregnancy test for my non pregnant friend to show to her husband.
    I had no idea she would be mean and let him fall asleep that night, talking about baby names. BWUAHAHAHA!
    I was proud to be a part of it.

    ReplyDelete
  30. hee hee. That's a good idea. Very easy prank to full off while instilling maximum paranoia in the punk'd.

    ReplyDelete
  31. So I thought I had this April Fool's Day in the bag. I woke my kids up and told them that they didn't have school today! Then my oldest says, "Mom! We know that! It's a Teacher Work Day". I check the calendar. It IS a Teacher Work Day. The joke is on me. Stupid Teacher Work Day.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'm stealing this for next year. Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Great post ::smirk::
    Just kidding, and it's the second anyway...

    ReplyDelete
  34. Oh yes the smirk!!! I love it. I've been thinking of ways on how to play pranks on my family and your idea of smirk just hit me off. I'm gonna do the smirk thing. Thanks for the idea.:-)

  35. highlarious.

    You got me.
    Completely.
    BTW- I love your voice. xoxox New Pal, Suzi

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh my god. That is BRILLIANT!!! IT's so simple yet so effective. Did it work well?

    ReplyDelete
  37. I am so sorry and embarrassed to say that there was not ONE punk in my life on this day. NOT ONE! Including from me.

    Oh sad sad life without any fun!

    I really love the 'smirking' idea. Leave them guessing.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh my, this is so deliciously evil. I'm somehow looked upon as the "prankster," though I haven't pulled an April Fools Day joke since I convinced my college roommate that I'd be undergoing a sex-change operation because I really felt I was a lesbian trapped inside a man's body.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Wait! Didn't you do your usual tricks on your kids? I remember it from last year. I was actually afraid you were going to say that it was an April Fool's that you were posting on my site , hee hee.

    ReplyDelete
  40. We wish we had smirked more on April 1, but we're loving your smirk and living vicariously through it!

    ReplyDelete
  41. So subtle, so brilliant. I am doing the smirk next year!
