All Fools Day

No jokes were played today by me, and none were played on me as far as I’m aware.  Some day I’d like to spend the first day of April in France where I’d be able to say April Fish for a change.  Or poisson d’avril, to be more precise.  And also see the Eiffle Tower and stuff.  It seems pranks and hoaxes and fooling people are favourite pastimes for people all over the world.  I have to admit, some of these are kind of funny.

Top 100 April Fool’s Day Hoaxes of All Time 

We made it back home today safe and sound.  It’s a five hour drive that I wish could be shorter.  But maybe the extra effort to get there makes us appreciate getting together more.   I’m glad I have a day to get myself unpacked and packed again for the next trip.  I’ve got strict orders from my sister to pack light, so God only knows what she’s planning on sending home with me.

Here’s the latest from the stars.  Tempted to throw a fit? Don’t, or you could throw something else in your life out of whack. Keep your cool while this situation develops, and you’ll see that no drastic action is necessary.  

Okay, so here I am, not taking any drastic action, and at the same time having no idea what the situation is that I’m doing nothing about.  Sounds like a normal day.  And really, right now I don’t have the energy to throw a fit.  It’s been another long day.  Maybe I’ll work on one of those fit throwing things tomorrow, depending on what the furnace guy does or does not accomplish.  So far he’s managed to mess about in our basement for two days, bringing things in and taking other things out.  Kind of reminds me of how I do housework.  Something appears to be going on, but there’s no clear evidence of any results.

Hope you had a foolishly happy day.  If not, there’s always next year to pin paper fish on peoples’ backs if you can’t think of anything original.  Or if you just want to annoy people who aren’t French.
