The day was April 1, also known as April Fool’s day. It was in the middle of the week, on a Wednesday. Not only were everyone’s spirits low on this fateful hump day, but we had to deal with dumb pranks all day.
The office was tense, silent, and filled with the uneasiness that comes on such high-strung days. We each scrolled through Facebook to look at everyone’s fake relationship statuses, because that’s how people prank nowadays.
Everyone began losing hope. I was on the verge of breaking my cool, when suddenly a girl named Amelia Dethloff walked into the Pioneer office. She brought with her 82 colorful cupcakes, topped with creamy icing and adorable marshmallow candies called Peeps — Peepcakes, if you will.
The Peepcakes were blue, green and purple. Blue to represent the peace and stability the Peepcakes brought the office, green to represent life and growth of new friendships, and purple to represent the Peepcake’s luxurious richness.
This had to be a prank of some kind. It was just too good to be true. It’s not often I get free food on this campus, and I wasn’t sure why I would on April Fool’s day. But hang on, the plot thickens.
She made the cupcakes for her classmates who barely touched any of them. Perhaps they thought it was a joke – but as I took my first bite into the scrumptious cake, I knew there was no joking involved. There was even a chocolate candy surprise hiding in the middle.
I gladly took two and dove into them almost instantly. They were wondrously explosive with flavor. Lives were fulfilled and hope was restored on that day. Friendships bloomed and memories were made. We laughed, we ate, and we cried.
It was the best April Fool’s day ever.
