April 1st is coming up and that means April Fool’s day! A few years ago my kids thought they’d be funny and wrap a rubber band around the hand sprayer at the kitchen sink. This way when I’d turn on the faucet it would spray me. Ha, ha. The thing is, they didn’t know that a plumber was coming that morning to fix the water leaking from the faucet neck. So he turns on the water to see where the leak is coming from and… yep. The poor guy got sprayed with water. Now THAT was funny! He had a good sense of humor about it, thankfully.
This year my goal is to send my agent the finished version of WHEN YOU LEAVE. And I shall title my email, “NO, this is not an April Fool’s joke, it really is my manuscript!!!”
I guess we shall see if the joke’s on me. Come Sunday, we will know if it’s ready to go or not.
