I hate it. 
I absolutely hate it. 

I think mostly because I always forget that it is April 1st. 
And I always spend a few minutes worrying about whatever the joke was. 

I remember the first time I came across a bad one. 

Someone told my sister that someone had broken into her car by breaking the windows. She went into a complete panic. For a good few minutes she killed a few cells worrying about what happened and what she should do. 

I also had one incident. This was a couple of years ago and ironically that early April 1st morning, I sent a reminder to my family. 

"Today is April 1st. Don't fall for anything outrageous people tell you."


Around noon that day, a good friend said she had an announcement. She and her husband had talked about wanting a baby boy. She told me that she was finally pregnant with one. I was very happy for her and her husband. Jumped up and down and congratulated her. Then I sent a congratulatory note to her husband. And he sent a confused response back. That's when it occurred to me. 

Once again, I had become an April's fool.

    Haha i hope that one day you write a post exploring the psychology of the desire to fuck with people in the way that so many do on april 1st. What is the pleasure they derive in tricking someone?

    @keni Well April 1st is over now so you can relax and be non-skeptical and believe everything for another 364 days ;)
