the demise of april fool

i enjoy playing pranks.
i never bother playing a prank on april 1.

i like being fooled.
even on april 1.

i recall, that during school days, april 1 used to see friends and some family members trying to pull a fast one. in good spirits and all that fluff of course.

since last few years, april fools day is largely some newspaper running a big scam story.

but other than that, the aam junta seem to have given up.
thats good in a way.

when did you last play an april 1 prank?

used to drag father out to the garden and say 'Aeroplane' which in those days was as common in Mysore as Spaceships. Maybe it was 1980. He would obediently look up. I would chant AprilFool. That ritual done we would resume our daily tasks. I am not a fan of the day.
