To me, it's kind of like playing "Jinks". You know, when someone says the same word at the same time, then someone calls out, "Jinks"!
Once when I was about 5 or 6 I was talking with my best friend and one of my sisters. During this conversation I said the same word as someone else and someone said Jinks and teased and teased. So, I punched my friend in the stomach.
I'm not proud of it. But I have never liked that silly game "Jinks". And I feel the same about April Fools Day. I just have never liked to be teased.
I didn't allow my kids to play "Jinks" either.
I know, what a kill joy.
I have said, "You have a spider on your head" for April Fools Day to the kids when they were young or something else unclever like that.
I think serving foods for April Fools Day (I've seen fried eggs, broccoli, toast, etc.) that are actually candy or cake is a very clever thing to do and I wish I was that clever (maybe one day).
I know. I'm silly AND boring.
It snowed today and I'm so ready for Spring!
