I only tried to prank someone on April Fools' day once.
The target: my mom.
The prank: I put a cup of water on top of my door, so when she walked into my room, it would turn over, and she'd get wet.
The result: hard plastic cup weighted with water hit her on the head and she yelled at me for the entire length of a "Power Rangers" episode.
That's why I think April Fools' day pranks are a terrible idea.
Case in point: this girlfriend, who thought it'd be hilarious to pretend to break up with her boyfriend over text.
This is a perfect lesson in emotional Kung Fu.
It's all about using your opponent's momentum against her.
Also, take a closer look the text that the boyfriend sent just before this conversation started.
Maybe he had it coming. She did follow up on the incident.
