I think of pranks from the I wake up in the morning until the moment I go to sleep. I can’t remember the last time I didn’t pull a blam prank on my friends and family. My dad’s motto is “a family that pranks together stays together” and he knows what he’s talking about – we have our very own joke shop!

I have a little brother called Hani, who I love to boss around but he’s always pointing out what could go wrong when I’m plotting an awesome pranks. I’m the boss when it comes to pranks, so I never listen. My big sister Heena is always looking at social media and seems to be glued to YouTube videos about make-up. She should be watching videos about practical jokes. I’d love to be a famous YouTuber who’s known for being the world’s best prankster. People already ask me for advice on how to do practical jokes, so I think it’d be really fun to show the entire world! She’s sometimes grumpy, especially when she’s the victim of one of my pranks! I think it’s because she’s always stressing about the amount of homework she has to do.

Speaking of homework, I go to Bash Street School. I enjoy my lessons, but I think it’s quite boring sometimes and that’s when I get the urge to liven things up with a prank or two. When I’m not at school, I often help out in my family’s joke shop and get prank ideas there. Maybe I should play a prank on Walter’s dad – he’s the mayor of Beanotown and doesn’t enjoy the fact there’s a joke shop in town. He hates pranks. I can’t imagine not loving fun!
