Show Description
Being April Fool's Day, Shep tells about the time when he was a kid in school and he gets a note in class from Patty Ramaley (sp.?). In the note she says she is madly in love with him. Shep rushes home excited, deciding not to sell seeds for school that day. He heads to Patty's house and knocks on her door. Her mother answers the door and asks Shep what he wants. He tells her to tell Patty he is here. Patty tells her mother from the next room that they don't need any seeds. Shep is confused and Patty seems to know nothing asking what he wants. He fakes it and asks about the math homework and then leaves. As he leaves the house, he hears giggling coming from under Patty's porch. Schwartz yells out April fools!
