Yes- I have posted this before, years ago. It warrants a repost now and then. I wish I could find the original but I'm just not organized enough. So this is the shorter version.
April Fool's Day, 8th grade, Odgen Junior High School. I had just read the Great Santini by Pat Conroy (one of my favorite books of all time, later made into a movie starring Robert Duvall) which lead me to the greatest April Fool's Day joke ever.
Before lunch at school, I went to the girls bathroom and put a can of chunky chicken noodle soup in a ziplock bag ( I had planned ahead and brought all my supplies from home). Then I stuffed it down the front of my bulky sweater. During lunch at my packed lunch table, I told everyone I didn't feel well. I bent over the table, made awesome loud barfing sounds, and pulled the neck of my sweater down far enough to push all the soup out onto the table. I had long, stringy blond hair which hid everything nicely from sight.
My best friend was in on the joke and after my fake barfing, complete with chunky chicken noodle soup now all over the lunch table, my friend and I took spoons and began eating it. Hey, It was soup after all.
Two girls barfed on the spot, several others ran to the bathroom. I went to the principal's office until my parents arrived. I thought it was funny. I still do.
