Monday Morning Question

Its Monday (already). Time for the Monday Morning Question:

In "honor" of April Fool's Day coming up this week, what was the best April Fool's joke played on you or that you played on someone else?

You can either answer in Betty's comment section or in your journal and leave a link in Betty's comment section:  Her journal is Of mini-paws and menopause.   Have Fun!

I'm not much of a jokester, but one thing came to mind.

Sometimes I make a resolution, on New Years Day, to write a poem every day of the coming year.  I was doing this in 2003 and decided to have some fun on April Fool's Day.  Here's the poem I wrote before going to work that morning, and sent to the friends on my "daily poem list".  Needless to say, I had quite a bit of e-mail that evening when I got home from work.

There'll be no more poetry heading your way.
I'm tired of thinking so hard every day.
I won't be constantly making things rhyme:
I've better things I can do with my time.

I have decided no one really cares
To hear my opinions and problems and prayers.
I have found much better things I can do
Than write all this garbage and wish it on you.

Yes, you will miss it at first, I am sure.
Even bad poetry has its allure,
But later I think you will sigh with relief
And thank the good Lord my career has been brief.

Now, with that said, I will drop out of sight
Never again to sweat bullets and write.
My poems are wasted attempts, as a rule:
Now that I've said this...
            


                                    WAKE UP!!!  April fool!!!
