April 1 gags are great

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized there is something very wrong with people whose reactions to April 1 gags (provided they are actually funny) to go insanely hostile. These are people who are incapable of laughing at themselves.

I also have noticed the same problem with people whose reaction to Thanksgiving is to call it ‘Turkey Day’ and be incapable of calling it Thanksgiving. I’ve noticed they have a big problem in giving thanks.

It is interesting the things you realize as you get older. Reader, you have a choice. When you age, you can either view old age as a comedy or as a tragedy. As we age, our bodies get older, and that is the tragedy of life. But as we age, our souls get younger, and that is the comedy of life. Next time you look into the eyes of a shriveled up old man in his wheel chair, notice the laughter in his eyes.
