|Birdie and I and the "For Sale" Sign|
The funniest part of the prank came throughout the day. If you would have asked me if anyone would take the sign seriously, I would have guessed not. We left it up all day because it was awesome. It attracted a few unexpected visitors. The best was the twenty-something-year-old who knocked on my door with his wallet in hand. He seemed disappointed when I told him it was merely an April fools day prank. Here he was thinking he'd landed his first real estate deal and I had to dispatch him to that sad reality that although our house is not the most valuable home ever, it was worth at least $200 or more. Nellie had several great encounters due to our sign also. Guess it goes to show you it wasn't a very good joke after all. A good joke never needs to be explained.
