Yeah, with the excitement of March Madness, I forgot to post last week! Here are a few of my favorite paranormal characters; I couldn't pick just one.
Abigail St. Michael: A woman who uses her sense of touch to see the past. Since Touch of Madness will be arriving this month, I suggest you pick this up:)
I love shifters, and this is the most recent one I've read. Looking forward to reading the other books in this series:)
You always remember your first, right? Well, this was not only my first CSP book, it was my first paranormal romance. LOVE Djinni:)
Like ghosts? I highly recommend this one by Anny Cook.
Like bear shifters? Love this one by Bronwyn Green:)
And thanks to Dakota Rebel, I'm enjoying vampires. This one is my personal fave:) And I'm told there's a sequel coming soon? SWEET!
And now for this week's topic:
The best April Fool's Day prank I ever pulled happened to take place in 1983, in Washington DC. I was 17; my sis 12. She was a typical pre-teen at the time (we didn't call them 'tweens'), very self-conscious of her looks. I was VERY AWARE of this, so just as we were about to leave our motel room, I gasped.
"Uh-oh....Wendy, you have a huge stain on the back of that shirt."
She freaked. "I do? Then I can't wear this! Dad! Wait a minute!" She pushed past me to the mirror and turned around, trying to see her backside.
Her face turned red and she popped me in the stomach. "That wasn't funny!"
Meanwhile, my father returned to see why his daughters were still in the room. "Girls, let's not have any more practical jokes...we only have one day to see as much as we can, and I want a peaceful day with both of you getting along. Am I clear?"
Chastised, we proceeded to enjoy our day on the Mall and going over to Arlington Cemetery.
Will I pull any pranks this year? Probably not. And since it's also Palm Sunday....the thing which makes me giggle is kind of the sort you'd see in a Mel Brooks' comedy: Can you see people standing inside Jerusalem's gates, palm leaves in hand, waiting for Jesus to appear? And suddenly a messenger bursts into the gates.
"April Fool! He's arriving tomorrow!"
(Sorry if I offend anyone, but that just cracks me up! Has Easter ever arrived on April 1st?)
