Being Gullible is Hard on April 1

Every year it happens. I get excited about an idea, puzzled by a choice, or downright disgusted by a theory, and then I look at the calendar. April 1st! I slap my forhead, fan my flaming face, and berate myself for being so gullible.

April

After my chagrin dies down I look on with admiration at some of the ploys that sucked me in.

I thought this was pretty funny.

I've always been a story teller. This made for some interesting missing homework and late for curfew tales. But I've never had a head for the pedantic rules of grammar and spelling. This made for some interesting comma placement and spelling choices. About ten years ago I decided to figure out how to share my stories, in spite of my shortcomings. I'm lucky to have great colleagues who can help me with the fine details. My favorite class in school was American History. The Colonial Cat's series gives me a chance to write about the great history of the United States and cats!

    I’ve been relatively unscathed the last couple of years – the kids have left!
