"The First Day of April"

April Fool's Day.  I remember how much fun it was to play silly little jokes on each other in school.  It was fun to make jokes while adults were around and not 'get into trouble'.  April Fool's Day gave everyone a license to tell silly little stories and make silly little jokes..... even us silly little kids.

This morning, my beautiful crocus felt the brunt of the joke that fell upon them during the night.  Snow.  Lots of people were not happy with Mother Nature's gift of this lovely white blanket on this 90th day of the Georgian calendar year... but the crocus didn't mind.  They stood tall (or as tall as they could stand!) - and they remain resilient.  They are beautiful.

But leaving the serious words for another day...... I have a question for you:

What are the Top 10 Symptoms that you may have PMS?

       1. Everyone around you has an attitude problem. 
       2. You're adding chocolate chips to your cheese omelet.
       3. The dryer has shrunk every last pair of your jeans.
       4. Your husband is suddenly agreeing to everything you say.
       5. Your using your cellular phone to dial up every bumpersticker that says,
              "How's my driving- call   1-800-***-**** ".
      6. Everyone's head looks like an invitation to batting practice.
      7. You're convinced there's a God - and he's male.
      8. You're counting down the days until menopause.
      9. You're sure that everyone is scheming to drive you crazy.
    10. The Ibuprofen bottle is empty and you bought it yesterday.

Tangle something.... you'll feel better.

Tomorrow's question:  How much deeper would oceans be if sponges didn't live there?
