Happy April Fool’s Day!
Have you tricked anyone or pulled a prank today? Or did your friends and family get you first?
Lying and deception isn’t the most ideal behavior, yet on April’s Fools, we have a good excuse to be a bit mischievous, sneaky, or even slightly naughty! Oh, the thrill of acting calm as you watch your victim react to the preposterous joke you just told! Or the tension as you watch your victim approach your pranking device! There is nothing quite like it!
Everything, however, is only good in moderation. Once it starts harming others, it stops being fun and can lead to unpleasing situations.
