Tiny Story #1

I’ve never done an April Fool’s Day prank. I made one joke on the holiday. And never again. 

When I was 8, my 10 year old brother and I joked that our older brother, born on April 1st, was an April Fools prank. At 12, he wasn’t offended. But he was street smart. So, he told my parents about the joke. We got in BIG trouble. And that’s why I’ve never done an April Fool’s Day Prank and don’t consider it a fun holiday. Even as an adult, it still feels like a day of punishment for me.

Childhood feelings. They can go on forever.
