April, April, laugh thy girlish laughter, and the moment after, Weep thy girlish tears, April.

Another month has passed, Saturday’s April already! We reserve tomorrow for jokes and harmless pranks: April Fools’ Day. Did you know this lighthearted tradition originates from Hilaria, the Roman festival devoted to general rejoicing? I can’t really trick you from here, but I hope these will make you smile:
“Sometimes it takes me all day to get nothing done”
“Controlling my mouth is not the real problem, it’s my face…”
“When a woman says do whatever you want, do NOT do whatever you want!”
“People who say I’m hard to shop for clearly don’t know where to buy wine”
“Nothing is more discouraging than unappreciated sarcasm”
It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.
― Charles Dickens

Late February days; and now, at last, might you have thought that winter’s woe was past; so fair the sky was and so soft the air.
