Happy April Fools: my mom just loved this day

This might seem weird to some. Bit April fool’s day makes me a little sad. It’s a day of jokes and I love pranks. Pulled one off last week on a colleague to great delight.

I got that love of pranks from my mother. She took great pleasure in planning elaborate pranks, especially on April Fool’s day. She would giggle and be so happy with herself. And, even though we knew a prank was coming she always managed to fool us. It was the best.

Thus, today I miss her pranking and I grieve a little more. But please go out and prank and find great delight in such an activity.
