Little Herbie had been blind since birth. One day at bedtime, his mother
told him that the next day was a very special one. If he prayed extra
hard, he'd be able to see when he woke up the next morning. The next
morning she came into Herbie's room and asked him if he'd prayed hard
the night before.
"Yes, Mommie," was his reply, "all night long!"
"Well, then," she said, "open your eyes and you'll know that
your prayers have been answered."
Little Herbie opened his eyes, only to cry out,
"Mother! Mother! I still can't see!"
"I know, dear," said his mother, "April Fool."
