A is for April Fools

No, no, you are not the fools, Dear Readers.  I am the fool.  As it turns out, I seem to be a sucker for a blog challenge.

First it was the Great Language Learning Challenge in February.
Now it's the A-Z Blogging Challenge in April.

It's not my fault.  I didn't plan to do it.  It's just that I got a text late last night from fellow blogger Jenny at The Modest Peacock.  She was all "Hey, I'm doing this.  I bet you're not, because you don't have the stones."*  And I was all...

And now we're all stuck.  It's like we're all in the first Back to the Future, I'm Marty McFly, and Blogging just called me chicken.  My hands are tied.  So for the next month I will be posting on topics from A-Z, every day but Sundays.  We'll get back to my seizure story in May.  Why?

Because I'm an April Fool.

*None of what I said she said right there was true.


Jenny said...

Thanks for the * that told the truth about what I did and did not say. :P Lol. And you don't have to wait til May for the other part of the seizure story. You can put it under L for Laughing Too Much, S for Seizures, F for Funny Story Continued... Don't let the alphabet challenge derail you. :)

I think you're gonna love it. That's how I got nearly 100 people on board with me last year: I double-dog dared them and in like 4 days there were a bunch of takers. Ah, you're an easy mark for a challenge! That's good because challenges are fun. Have a great time!

Wow, it's International Samurai Day! I'll have to wrestle someone before dinner. (wink)

Jenny said...

Although, as I think about it, what if I HAD said it to you like that?? Hmm? You've known me for nearly two decades now- would it have completely shocked you if I had sent your version of the dare in my text message?? ;)

Arlee - I'm enjoying it so far. I have the topics for the next month lined up, and several of them written. This is going to be... rewarding.

Sharon - Did you manage to get that wrestling in?

Jenny - Honestly, I'm not sure that it would have registered right away, due to how many people would have said that to me in earnest. I think it would slowly dawn on me.


Surely though, it would make my day.
