Week # 3: April Fool's Day

April Fools' Day or All Fools' Day, although not a holiday in its own right, is a notable day celebrated in many countries on April 1. The day is marked by the commission of hoaxes and other practical jokes of varying sophistication on friends, family members, enemies, and neighbors, or sending them on fool's errand, the aim of which is to embarrass the gullible. Traditionally, in some countries, the jokes only last until noon: someone who plays a trick after noon is called an "April Fool". Elsewhere, such as in Ireland, France, and the USA, the jokes last all day. (from Wikipedia)

I had fun with this one ...
But I can barely see the print, as it's very small and gray. What happened?

Amias, only a small part of the post was made like this to avoid too much of attention in it. Will read your story in some time. I'm sure it would be a great one.

Thanks for Participating :)

Love the new blog! I don't have time to play along right now unfortunately. I was married on April fool's day - it's a fun story that I'll get around to one of these days :-)
