Yesterday was my husband's 40th birthday, so I wanted to make it stand out. I needed a birthday idea that was different and sort of fun, not the typical "Lordy, Lordy, Look Who's Forty" sign that people put in their front yard. So, I decided I would contact a bunch of his co-workers (about 30) via email and ask them to participate in my little birthday idea. I don't know if it really qualifies as a prank, just something fun to do to recognize the fourth decade birthday. I asked his co-workers to each bring him 40 pennies. That's right! They were to hand deliver 40 pennies some time throughout the day along with a happy birthday wish. Why pennies? Because people hate all those pennies! and who wants hundreds of pennies with no where to put them? HA! Plus, I figured people wouldn't give 40 quarters. Oh well! I asked that they not be in a bag because that would make things too easy. It's a lot more memorable to get 40 or 80 pennies at one time and then being stuck with them in your pockets. He got everything from "40" being written in pennies on his desk, to forty pennies being dropped in his classroom, to lots of hand deliveries of pennies. Needless to say, he had a pile of pennies at the end of the day.....it was all in fun, of course!
