Playing the Fool


I will fall for anything.

Seriously, anything.

"Did you hear that they are removing the word 'gullible' from the dictionary?"

Yup, I fell for that. In fact I even argued that the word 'gullible' is still a frequently used word in the English language and the Oxford English Dictionary would never dream of making this word archaic.

Talk about gullible!

I'm not really that into April Fool's Day. I'd like to say it is because I am such a level headed person and trickery just isn't my thing... but that would be a huge lie, as I always wish I could come up with brilliant April Fool's Day jokes and not fall for a single one.

Hmmmm.... not this year. I've already been fooled. And as for trickery of my own... I guess there isn't a lot I can do. I did tell Gracie that she was adopted. And that Will was dying of a terminal illness. She just ignored me and asked me to play Barbies with her.

And I told Annelie that I put melted lard in her bottle instead of milk, but she just stared blankly at me and finished drinking it.

I'll have to get a little more creative next year. As for playing the fool -- well I'm sure I will always be hopeless!!

I'm just as bad and believing people, even when it is far out. So easy to trick.
I don't think I could have to told my daughter her father was terminally ill, but likely I would get the same reaction.

One year my horriable rotten husband told me that our dictionary must have been defective because "gullible" was in there twice.

Yeah... I went and got the dictionary and checked only to be greeted by a post it with April Fools written on it.
