April Fool

It was 1 April yesterday. The day where people can make fools out of others in a good-natured way. Way before this day arrived, I was already preparing to fool several people. But consumed by work, I subsequently forgot about it.

A long distance call to my daughter, chatting and half way through she said her laptop had problems. I went like, “Huh?” She said, “April Fool!” We laughed. Talk about LOL. That was the only time I got fooled. What happened to the sense of humour?

Have I forgotten to play the joker? Have I forgotten to let loose and allow myself to fool around a bit? Take my job seriously but take life less seriously and let go when the time calls for it.

So today on, I shall clown around when I need to and LOL. You, too?
