so today . . . is the worst holiday ever. i don't know whose bright idea it was to make up a holiday where the way you celebrated was by lying to other people . . .
i've been trolling facebook today, and i haven't found anyone yet who was the victim of an april fool's joke and enjoyed it. the tricksters sometimes find themselves hilarious, but the victims report feeling anger, sadness, fear, and worst of all . . . momentary joy (until their unexpected happiness is squashed when they learn "it was all just a joke.")
i have played more than one prank in my life--i know this is shocking to all of you except wendy, who has been my victim on occasion--so i'm not against playing jokes. i'm just against playing MEAN jokes. and that seems to be what april fool's jokes have become . . .
it makes me sad.
