Blue•stock•ing, n. A woman having intellectual or literary interests.
You must pull off the act first thing in the morning! Cell phones allow for great pranks on someone living or staying with you. Call your home number, answer, make the appropriate remarks, and then announce who is on the line for your "victim." Use your cleverness to spoof your dupe. "Someone named Mary Helen Dumlof, I think she said, is on the line. She knows you from college...??" The unsuspecting party will look so perplexed and take the phone with a questionable "hello...." Then you will laugh and shout, just like a silly second grader, "April Fools!"
Mary Helen Dunlop? Is that you? I never write "there was," thanks to you!
