Got your guard up?
My guard is up.... I hate April Fool's Day
And while my guard is up, I refuse to believe anything anyone says... but all they have to do is say, "I'm serious!"... & then I fall for it! So much for that guard....
I'm horrible at jokes. I'm always afraid someone's feelings are going to get hurt - or they will be disappointed.
Have you ever seen that "lottery ticket joke" that you scratch off & people think they won a MILLION dollars, or some insane amount. People get SOOO excited - they are freaking out - plans instantly running through their minds on how happy their life will be now. APRIL FOOL'S!!! Snatch away that dream... to me, that's so cruel....
Or if you scare someone with news of "you're fired" - HAHA - April's FOOL! ... WHAT?? I thought I was headed to the unemployment line... that's not funny!
Telling someone you're pregnant or getting married... there's probably BOTH reactions to that one - fear or overwhelming joy...
Believe me, I'm no stick in the mud... I love a good laugh, but I just hate pranks & jokes... & my co workers know that... & even more so, they know I'm an easy prey... so I'm just wanting to get through the day...without wanting to punch someone in the face....or believing somone puked all over their desk (yes, that was a prank one year here... fake vomit is very believable)
You ever been pulled a good April's Fool prank off yourself? Ever been suckered into a good prank? Dont tell me about it today - I wont believe you... tomorrow, I'll believe you... or just put "I'm serious" after what you have to say.. I'll totally believe you then!
Happy Pranking Day!
