On A for April

I'm guessing that 99% of anyone visiting this blog today already know what the A-Z challenge is, and the remaining 1% will be capable of clicking the icon in the sidebar to find out. Therefore, I will not go into details about why I am blogging six out of seven days a week this month, or why my titles suddenly will seem to have a peculiar relationship with the alphabet.

I'm also guessing that a great deal of the 800 other blogs participating in the A-Z challenge will also write about "April" today (funny how that seems appropriate), with the notable exception of Mary who claims we had a mind-melt over titles (only I used mine on Wednesday).

So what? April is a good topic to blog about. It's a spring month. At least if you're not living in Norway. Which I currently am. But we have great hopes of spring eventually catching up with us. Before summer...

Fine. So April isn't the most interesting of subjects. How about April Fool's Day? Anybody fool you today? I'm suspecting my dad will have a go - he usually does. As a kid he managed to trick me, often (when I was a kid, I mean. I didn't know my dad when he was a kid). When I grew older, I was prepared. But I never tricked him back. You'd think I would be able to, but I don't seem to plan well enough for this "beloved" holiday. Last year I had a go with my blog readers, though I think it probably only served to make them forever skeptical about the logic of my native language.

Perhaps I'd do better to choose a different topic than April, then. Aardvark? Algorithms? Arthochromatic erythroblast? Nah... I think I'll just call it a post and await tomorrow. B. B for bullfinch? Bubble baths? Brittle? I may have to think this through some more...

It's too early for anyone to fool me yet. I still have to go to bed and wake up in the morning. I am unbelievably gullible though. We'll see.

Wonderful post Cruella, I haven't played any jokes yet as I live alone. Loved the read.

Have a good day.

I didn't plan to participate, but maybe I'll change my mind. I could write a post about Anti-Christ (spell checker tried to change it to Anita-Chirst, which might be a good subject too) >:)

I totally forgot about April Fools Day and today I have to go to work and break out the pressure washer. This could be bad...

I love your wit. I have an anthill for the Aardvark though :)

Glad to have found your blog. Have had a browse through some of your pasts posts and really like your style! Best of luck with the A-Z. I'm giving it a bash too. I'm fairly new to blogging so I'm hoping it'll give me a bit of routine.

quotes on art. that's me today. i wish April were more like spring here today. it's going to be in the 90's. sometimes i don't like Phoenix, AZ very much.

Oh, I hate April Fools Day! My daughter will do pranks all day long.

Sophie Li said...

I am horribly susceptible to April Fool's Day because my knee-jerk instincts is to trust that people are telling the truth. Yes .. Im just so dull and gullible that way. *sigh*

Ann said...

I used to prank my sisters and mother for Aprils Fool Day when I was young. But since then I have been on the receiving end of the pranks. Suffering for the sins of my youth...I suppose.

Arthochromatic erythroblast? Yea, April was a good choice.

Believe it or not, you're the first "April" I've seen today. Granted I haven't been to more than 20 blogs (I haven't been counting; I'm just guessing) and people have had lots of different A's. *shrug* perhaps your more original than you thought (or I'm shelters. That's also a possibility). :)

Yay for A-Zers! Yay for April! Yay for aardvarks!

I'm limericking for the entire challenge. *nods* I figured 5 lines of text a day shouldn't be too much of a hurdle. *snort*

M Pax said...

No one has fooled me yet unless my husband lied to me earlier. Hope not. That'd make me cry.

I think this is the first April Fool's Day where I didn't come across any pranks or hear any talk about it at all today, save for around the internet (but that's to be expected).

The Words Crafter said...

No one got me for April Fools, yay!!!!

Hey, I'm all for a bubble bath before bed!

Ugh, I'm just glad the 1st is almost over. My name is April, so every year on this day, there's at least 1 person who thinks it hilarious to lamely taunt me with "April's a Fool! This is your day!" As far as the pranks, I just do them to my daughter, now. I put rubber cockroaches literally everywhere in her room while she slept.

Great post for the challenge....can't wait to read more!
