I never cared much for pranks on April fool’s day, but I do remember years ago when I first became a manager at work I had the privilege of being made a fool. Yes, it was a privilege of being bonded with my team. There is a closeness to friendship when a prank is played on you.
It wasn’t April first, it was just an ordinary day, when suddenly my office phone started ringing. I pulled the receiver and lo and behold the whole telephone fell into my knee, the cord was only 10 centimeter long because my friends had wired it together. I still remember trying to make excused to the person who had called me.
Later I remember coming to office early to plant my revenge. There is nothing better than hear the boom a of a party popper going off in the next room. Afterwards we laughed, made truce.
in his memory
fireworks were brighter —
