In honor of today's date, I thought I'd repost a quick April Fool's Day story.
Hubby "Big D" looks like a grown man but is such a child in so many ways. I say this with love. Really.
One minor example is his preference for sugary cereals such as Lucky Charms and Peanut Butter Cap'n Crunch (most commonly misspelled/mispronounced as "Captain Crunch.")
One April 1st, Big D got out the big serving bowl (big kid; big bowl) and the brand new box of Peanut Butter Cap'n Crunch. Poured the cereal into the bowl... and out came...
He uttered some very adult expletive statement along the lines of, "What the fudge?!"
And then proceeded to call the Customer Support phone number on the back of the Cap'n Cruch box (1-800-234-6281 from 8am - 4pm CT if you ever need it.)
"Hello. I would like to make a complaint," he grumbled. "I just bought a box of Peanut Butter Cap'n Crunch and there are Cheerios inside. I think something got messed up in your factory!"
As he was talking, he realised that we also had a box of Cheerios in the pantry. He opened up the box and....
"Waaaaiiit a minute..." he stalled to the customer rep on the phone. "Oh my gosh. There is Peanut Butter Cap'n Crunch in my Cheerios box. I think my kids played an April Fool's trick on me."
The customer rep replied, "Well, I was going to tell you that it would have been pretty tough since we make Cap'n Crunch here at Quaker Oats and Cheerios are made by General Mills!"
It's still as funny today as it was then!! (And I think Big D is still as embarrassed!)
