Fool Me Once...

 

Fool Me Once

 

Fool Me Once...The day started off fine. 

 

Bright.  Sunny.  A nice and sunny Southern California day was anticipated. No foolishnesss in sight.  At least I thought so.  But it happened and as usual by surprise. But not really.  Not in hindsight. Additional thought made me realize these things occur.  Nobody's fault.  Not even my own. 

 

I could easily find fault but why?  What's the purpose?   Move on.  Stay aware.  Don't fall into traps either real or imagined.  I may not have handled it appropriately.  Walking away.  Walking off.  But the situation worked for me. At that time. For that reason.  Issue over. 

 

Time to move on.  Move forward. 

 

And as far as April Fool's Day, 2019.  Also over.  Moving on.  Gladly.

I pulled one prank. I am really over April Fool's Day. We probably just need to find fun in making people happy  :):)

Hi Michael-I enjoy fun pranks that make us all laugh, not at one person. But if it's the kind of "fool" situation, then I have better things to do.

Michael,

The whole concept of April Fool has never appealed to me.  Yes, we move on and walk away...and the joke falls flat with no one to comment or make a scene as do most crazy actions designed for a bit of attention.  And now, we have clouds today, lots of them, and we just jettisoned our plans for a trip to see the poppies!

Business takes priority and so it goes...Wishing you a great day! A

Sharon Lee - as best as possible is the goal each day.

Endre Barath, Jr. - diplomacy is a work in progress too.

James Dray - my quickness in idenitfying such foolishness needs to be combined wtih greater tolerance as appropriate.   

Kat Palmiotti - neagative energy is not positive, that's for sure.

Kathy Streib - this wasn't an April Fool's Day joke but I thought it had that type of feeling as it was taking place.  Bait-and-switch came to mind as well after the fact.

Alexandra Ron and Alexandra Seigel -- "scene" over and not to be "scene" either.

I was not party to any April Fool's jokes. Kinda too old for that crap.

I had originally planned to make my announcement about the Super Team on Monday, but then I realized it was April 1 and people might not believe me, LOL. So I pushed it to April 2.

Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Realtor Top 1% - yes, I think waiting in this particular situation was a good idea.

Laughing at yourself, keeping a positive attitude and just moving on are the best things to do in a difficult situation.  You live and you learn.  Great blog...thanks for sharing!

Regardless of what transpired on the perennially goofy April Fool's Day, it sounds as if you had the right mindset to shrug it off.

Norma J. Elkins - living and learning.  That's the way it's done.  Everyday.  Some days more than others.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - shrugging it off seems more appropriate when time and experience combines.

I don't mind April 1 at all but, I do mind drama created on other days of the year. I do exactly as you do - walk away and never look back. No sense stewing over it either - let bygones be bygones!

More fun.  More kindness.  And yes, less drama.  Debe Maxwell, CRS
