Several years of pranks by members of the class of 2015, and you would think I'd expect something. I guess I sort of let my guard down due to the fact that there was no school on April 1.
This morning when I arrived to my classroom, nothing looked out of place. I attended to my routines --- turning on my laptop, turning my keurig "on", and selecting my favorite Pandora station. I always do my grading and/or lesson planning in the early morning, so next I sat at my desk. As I sat down fully, my chair exploded with one of the loudest, piercing sounds I've heard. At first I thought it was the thunder from the severe storms that passed through Lakeview this morning, but the sound continued for a while.
To my amazement, an air can attached to the bottom of my desk was duct taped exactly at the point where my chair would hit it when I sat. WOW! This is an awesome prank. You got me good.
Thanks to Gifford, Erik, and Bennett for keeping the tradition alive.
April Fools, y'all!
