I am the April fool

April 1, 2004

I always make a fool of myself, so today really is not much different than any other day. For my parents, however, today is a date to remember. It’s their wedding anniversary. They’ve been married 38 37 years.

I applaud my parents, who not only have built a beautiful together but have also had to put up with my brothers and me for most of that time.

Not just any ol’ fool can do that.

  6. christine says:

    Oops! Apparently, I can’t count. That’s 37 years, not 38 — still a long time!

    it always amazes me when i realize that some people have know each other (AND LOVED EACH OTHER!) longer than i have been alive.

    and i think to myself “what a wonderful world.”

  • I run a darling, friendly, little graphic design studio.
    I look on the bright side.
    I take photos. Lots of photos.
    I wish on stars and on websites.

  • I built my first web site 7 years ago and got 15 seconds of fame. (It changed my life.)
    I launched, then relaunched, an online magazine.
    I admitted to several embarrassing crushes.
    I consumed more bacon than any human should and lived to tell the tales.
