It's the end of March, and while there is still snow on the ground, spring is here. And April is right around the corner. And where there's April, There's April Fool's Day. What started as a time to ridicule the fools has become a day where everyone, regardless of age, race or gender, can dump buckets of paint over each other's heads.
In past years, I've been mostly passive when it comes to this holiday. I would make big, elaborate schemes, and not follow through on them. But this year will be different. I've got a bunch of plans laid out, and I'm teaming up with my good friend Zachary, who's in the 11th grade (not to be confused with Zach the Impossibility), to pull these pranks.
Zachary is one of my best friends at my new school. Until the 8th grade, I went to the local public school system, but because of my social unawareness, I got picked on. So I left and went to this private school. It's tiny, like fifty people. It only made sense that, in such a small school, with our shared love of Coldplay music, we would become friends. We also both have Aspergers, and I guess that that was also a factor.
Now then. The pranks. I've got some very elaborate stuff planned out, and more thoughts are coming by the truckload. I'm planning to wear my Bluetooth earpiece the entire time to communicate with Zachary and coordinate on the pranks. And I thought that thing would never come in handy.
I've got a scary mask, a slingshot, a whoopee cushion, and a friend, and together, we'll be the most powerful force of pranks our school has ever seen. I'll be sure to tell you, the readers, how it turns out.
