April Fools’ Day is one of my least favorite annual observances. With its exact origins shrouded in conjecture and mystery, we have practiced it in some form or another for several centuries. It appears I am not alone in my distaste for the custom as some corporations have recently banned April Fools’ Day pranks. Given that previous “pranks” have sometimes earned companies less than funny fallout, perhaps discretion is advised.
Today I will proceed with caution, question the validity of ridiculous comments and wait for the nonsense to pass. It would appear Mark Twain is right. Today just like any other day.
Happy April Fools’ Day!
Keep on writing.
