I’m not sure exactly why, but I can never bring myself to make anything of April Fools Day. I try to be careful that I don’t buy into any of the prank news stories that float around and I certainly don’t mind the fact that lots of people have fun with this holiday, but I don’t think I’ve ever pulled a significant April Fools joke of my own.
That puts me in a quandary. I am hesitant to write anything serious lest it be ignored as a joke and I have no desire to force some wit into my writing. Maybe I can luck out like last year. I didn’t even remember that it was April Fools Day, but as I look back at what I posted I can see that it was rather amusing.
