Want to know a secret – We’re having our usual family Easter egg hunt this year, but since it is April Fools Day, we are not going to really hide any and just let them look. Do you think the kids are going to kill us? APRIL FOOLS!

4.1.12 Who’s a fool?

My mother’s birthday was April 1st.  They call it April Fools day in many countries around the world,  My mother was no fool, but the earliest recorded association between April 1 and foolishness can be found in Chaucer‘s Canterbury Tales (1392) (so says Wikipedia).  My mother loved Chaucer and Shakespeare, and used to recite lines from his plays to us all the time… “All the worlds a stage, and all the men and women are merely players….”

Being Silly

I am not a prankish person.  I don’t find slapstick or sophomoric comedy funny.  But, I think I am in the minority.  Even the animals seem to prank each other.  I have watched Louise pretend that she was going to give something to Sofie (like a ring or pull toy) only to yank it away at the last moment.  I don’t think animals feel ‘foolish’ though.  I think that is a human thing.  I have never seen one of my zoo blush (can animals really get red in the face?) or get embarrassed.  They just laugh and move on.  I love that animals live so in the moment.  I assume that is why they don’t get pranked, because they don’t worry about how they appear to others and just take the moment for what it is. 

Happy birthday, Mom.  You would have been 89 today.  You would really have liked the dogs.  Say hi to Dad for me.

A pet is family, it is not a pair of shoes you return because they do not fit. Think long and hard before you get a pet.
