Hoy me levanté infeliz. Carlos me despertó diciendo: “Tracy, el perro tuvo un accidente terrible en la sala. Ve a ver. Es un desastre.”

Yo sospechaba que él estaba bromeando, pero yo no estaba cierta y fui a investigar. Claro que no habia nada de accidente en la sala y el perro estaba dormido.

“Feliz Día de los Inocentes!” Carlos me dijo. Cuando vio que yo no le hice mucha gracia, él se disculpó y dijo que no más bromas por el resto del día. Ja! Como si no voy a tener mi venganza? Yo no lo creo!


Today I woke up unhappy. Carlos awakened me saying, “Tracy, the dog had a terrible accident in the living room. Go look. It’s a mess.”

I suspected that he was joking, but I wasn’t sure and I went to investigate. Of course there wasn’t any accident in the living room and the dog was asleep.

“Happy Innocents Day!” [Innocents Day is like Latin America’s April Fools Day] Carlos said. When he saw that I wasn’t amused, he apologized and said there would be no more tricks for the rest of the day. Ha! As if I won’t have my revenge? I don’t think so!


  1. Funny, I didn’t know there was another “Fool’s Day”. French (and most of Europe as far as I know) celebrate April 1st as well.

    • It’s so not fair to trick people when they’re still not totally awake! LOL… I’ll take it as a compliment that Carlos figured he could only pull one over on me if I was half asleep ;)
