April Fool

I hadn’t a clue that today was the first of April until I was browsing the web and came across an announcement on the news.com site that said CNET was entering the software market and would be releasing a web browser that was so incredible it would instantly crush both Netscape and Microsoft. It was a very genuine sounding article–it really had me going for a while.

That’s about as “fooly” as my day got. When you’re busy you miss out on all the good holiday activities. I didn’t pinch anyone on St. Patrick’s Day, and I didn’t get to play any good tricks on anyone today. Of course, no one played any on me so I guess I shouldn’t complain. Not that I would have a hard time coming up with a good one to play! I could have just skipped today’s rehearsal and told Alan (our director) April Fools! I don’t think that would have gone over too well.

We always played the best April Fool’s jokes when I was in high school. One year we built a brick wall in the hallway of the school late at night, so when people turned a corner the next day, instead of having a long hallway in front of them they ran into a wall. There were other pranks, but most of them are probably still not out from under the statute of limitations…
