Not in the Mood

Usually I love April Fools' Day. I love a good prank as long as nobody gets hurt. Some years I've come up with some dandy pranks for April 1. Not only do I normally enjoy dishing 'em out but taking 'em too. I get a good chuckle out of a well played prank at my expense.


This year I am not in the right frame of mind for April Fools' Day. I have already warned those around me. I am emotionally fragile right now and just can't deal with having to be on the alert for pranks or laughing genially as someone makes me look foolish. I can't deal with it right now. I am going to be one of those grumpy people everyone hates today. You know the ones, the ones to whom people say "Can't you take a joke?" My answer for now: "No. No I cannot take a joke right now. Things just don't seem that funny to me right now."

I hope the people around you respect what you are going through right now.

I freakin hate April Fool's day. I started my day being made a fool of, and i swear as much as i love the guy, he's lucky this house doesn't contain a full flight of stairs or i would have pushed him right down. I had to settle for spanky. GRR.

Bunny - Most everyone did, and the one person that played a joke on me really got a good laugh out of me. She scared the daylights out of me by emailing me that she was pregnant with the baby of the man she recently broke up with and wanted advice as to how to handle it. I bought it hook, line and sinker and offered my best advice, including sticking foot firmly in mouth by asking if she was 100% sure if it was his. Best April Fool's joke anyone played on me in a long time.

Serenity - See? Now that's the kind of joke I don't like, the kind that makes a fool of the jokee. Ah well, spanky isn't so bad, right? LOL
