Just Give Me the Fucking Cheese

I don't really like April Fools' Day. I actually hate any holiday that bullies people into participating. Valentine's Day, where your husband is forced to buy you flowers or every woman in your office will pity you. St. Patrick's Day, where the country pretends to be Irish and wears green and gets drunk. And if you don't people pinch you all day long. And now April Fool's Day. Play fucked up, usually not funny and often stupid pranks on people day.

I like to laugh as much as the next person but when I go to Auntie Anne's Pretzels and they tell me they are out of cheese only to be all HA! April Fools! well that just pisses me off.

I think part of my annoyance with the holiday is that my mind just is not set up to think of elaborate pranks. And if you can't think of anything to do to others than this holiday is mainly about being a victim.

And its not like you can just punch the kid at Auntie Anne's and then say, "APRIL FOOLS!"

...but wouldn't it be funny?

what kind of ASS tells you there's no cheese for the fantabulous pretzel-goodness?

Oh man... I forgot to tell J... I TOTALLY had my sister and Mom convinced I was getting married... I let them dangle for a good 15 minutes before I decided to remind them of the date... Further proof that I was adopted, I know...
