Maybe it’s a complete lack of whimsy on my part, but I’m not a huge fan of April Fools day. At all. Having an entire day of the year where I can’t rely on what anyone says to be true, false press releases, ridiculous jokes, people telling their family they’re getting divorced when they’re not, announcing that they’re expecting a child when it isn’t so, announcing that they’re quitting, hired, accepted, rejected, releasing new makes and models of some product…
I got an email this morning that someone passed away. I hope that wasn’t a sick joke. I mean I don’t wish the person dead or ill, he’d been ill for a long time. I passed that info along to a friend trusting that no one was that cruel…
I want to just hide under a rock until the whole upside down world is right side up again…. Luckily my husband is even grumpier than I am and much too busy to play any jokes on anyone… but the rest of you? Well I’ll just choose not to believe a word that comes out of your mouths today…
Yeah, I’m all grumpy like that.

I find it interesting that folks who tend to be fans of Halloween–which I believe you guys are–tend to be far less into the whole April Fools’ Day thing. And vice versa, to an extent.
I’m naturally naive and pollyanna, so I fall for every joke, every day. Today is no different. ;)
Amen sister. Don’t like it either..
I don’t necessarily like this day either, and really don’t prank anyone. I am grown up. Maybe for kids its ok… maybe.
I cannot stand it, but then I really don’t enjoy surprises much and practical jokes kinda fall in that line.
I just thank the heavens that spring break has included April Fools’ Day the last few years; I would take the day off from teaching if it wasn’t – I say no thank you to 150+ hilarious teenage jokesters.
Rick: Good point, I am a halloween lover… but that holiday isn’t about fooling people. At least it isn’t to me. It’s just a chance to dress up in something I wouldn’t get to wear everyday, throw a themed party for my family and put makeup on my podcast guests. :)
