No April Fools here

Halfway through Spring Break and I’m still sane and sober. It’s a good thing. We’re hitting the movies today, just in time for the thunder snow predicted. Yes. Thunder and snow, welcome to spring in Colorado. First time I heard it I thought I was hallucinating.

There will be no April Fools post today. Nothing about me being pregnant (sweet Jesus, no!), or moving, or leaving it all behind to live in Bali (though I have fantasized about that). Instead I’ll repost my April Fools post of three years ago (and will repost until the end of time…mainly because I’m lazy that way), where I sing to the heavens my deep down hatred of April Fools pranks. I was the inadvertent victim of a nasty prank ten years ago, when I was a grad student at the University of Colorado. Wow. Can’t believe it’s been ten years. Time flies when you’re birthin’ babies. 😉

Why Jen absolutely HATES April Fools Day.

Be nice to people today. No pranks. Do the opposite. Pay for the coffee of the person behind you in line. Watch a newborn for an hour so the new mom can shower for the first time in days. Take your kids to the movies. Make April Fools Day a positive thing, instead of screwing with someone with pranks. Life’s too short to be mean in the guise of being funny.
