I’ve never really enjoyed April Fools Day. I can take a joke and I do have a sense of humor, so that’s not why. It’s just that because it’s a day that’s dedicated to trying your best to trick people I don’t know how to react to anything the entire day. I mean serious stuff can still happen today, so if someone tells me they’ve just lost their job or they just got mugged, or whatever then I would hate to laugh in their face because I thought they were only fooling me and then find out they were telling the truth. So it throws me off. I never even enjoyed it as a kid. I have confidence issues as it is and spending the whole day not knowing whether I’m seeing or hearing the truth anywhere does not exactly fill me with confidence. So I was kind of surprised at myself when I came up with my own April Fools joke today.
Yes, my post from this morning is only a joke. I am not tired of blogging or tweeting and I am not actually intending to stop. It is true that I am behind, but I should be caught up soon. Since I have been out of the loop for a week I didn’t really have a topic lined up for today and after a 10 hour night at work I let my exhausted mind convince me to try pranking everyone. As soon as I posted it, I went to bed and got some much needed sleep. But as soon as I woke up, my mind went straight back to my blog and I began worrying. Will people know it’s a joke? Will anyone care? What if someone leaves a comment that they are glad I’m no longer going to post? And so here I am.. sleep in the corners of my eyes, hair all disheveled, stomach growling for some breakfast and sitting at the computer freaking out about my first ever attempt at an April Fools Day joke.
I seriously hate this day.
