Ever want your own holiday? You couldn’t ask for a better one than April Fool’s Day. April first has always felt like my personal holiday. In elementary school, everyone of the 40 kids in my class had a special prank just for me. Throughout junior high and high school the pranks continued, including ever bigger groups of classmates.
I tried to get into the spirit. The only trick I can remember was an epic fail. I had heard the idea of replacing the sugar with salt. To me it seemed harmless. My Dad took two heaping scoops for his coffee, and took a great big swallow. It was not funny. This was my last prank.
Thank goodness April Fool’s Day only comes once a year. Now April first is a good day to lounge around the house and watch television. What a great holiday.
