Mrs. Lund stood in front of the class and reminded us of a big test we had that day (we had not been previously informed of any such test.) Then she proceeded to pass out test papers to us. She instructed us to read the directions, before beginning, but like most 10-11 year olds, we did not read the directions. The test was hard, I mean HARD! It might have come from a 6th grade math teacher. About 20 minutes into the grueling exercise there started to be some giggles in the room. Once most everyone had stopped taking the test and started looking around at what everyone was giggling about, Mrs. Lund calmly walked to the front of the room, and raised the projector screen to reveal April Fools! on the chalkboard.
You see if we had actually read the directions as she had instructed us to, we would have read,"
Directions: Read all the questions on this test before beginning." The last question on the test said, "If you have read this question, you do not have to answer any of the other questions on this test."
Oh brother! It was one April Fools joke I will never forget!
Have fun today!
