Today is the first day of April.
My thought as I was fixing my oatmeal for breakfast was that this is when April of the comic strip For Better or For Worse was born during a freak snowstorm. I couldn’t remember if she’s turning 15 or 16. Then the newspapers brought in from the front porch confirmed age 16. Kinda silly of me, thinking of a comic character like she’s a relative or something.
Next came the memory that April 1 is the birthday of my Aunt Sylvia. She was born on April Fool’s Day, then died on Halloween. Just her luck when she had to share her days with mischief makers, especially her brothers’ teasing.
While eating oatmeal and reading the comics, I came to realize that having a day for pranks would not be neglected merely because the date falls on a Sunday this year.
Seems like most of the plots had April Fool jokes.
At church, I heard about an April Fool prank.
One of the kids, a boy about 10 years old, came rushing in through the front doors saying he had to find the pastor. He was directed to where the man was chatting. The boy told the pastor that one of the tires on his truck was flat. The pastor went outside, walked down the walk to where he could see all 4 tires of the truck without actually crossing the drive lane or parking lot.
Umm, I don’t think so, they look fine from here.
Giggle “APRIL FOOL!”
Nobody has tried with me, but the day is not over yet.
