I started to reply just to Gary on this one, but figured the rest
of you might enjoy this, as it eventually involves former Grooper
First, here's the email I sent out on April Fool's Day to various
friends. I didn't try to fool the Groop because only days before
I spoke of my love for good pranks and figured there wasn't a
chance in hell ANY of you would fall for this.
However, it was still worth trying to trick Gary...

"Oh my god Larry I can't believe you got me like that, I totally
This from someone whose not only known me for 20+ years, but who
has been a frequent victim of my foolishness in years past!
Can you say Slow Of Mind?
P.S. Chris Schechner called me at work, put on a fake New York
accent and said (I'm paraphrasing) "I'm calling from the loading
dock, I got 20 cases of shoes sitting here for a Larry Steller
from Groo's Shoe store..."
Well, having just sent out my prank email my defenses were sky
high, so I just laughed my head off and couldn't figure out who
it could be, assuming it was one of my NY friends...
