Day 3368: Fools

Today is April Fool’s Day, so let’s start out with a definition of “fool.”

If I were at a restaurant and somebody said “that damn fool waiter” to me, I would get away from that person as soon as I could, and I’m not fooling.

That reminds me of the time when I was waiting at my favorite restaurant to meet a guy from a dating site for the first time who had a very prestigious job, and he was late. The waiter kept refilling my water and when I started to feel like a fool I let the waiter know what was going on. When the guy finally showed up, I wasn’t fooled by him — he seemed insensitive, entitled, and humorless — and after a few minutes I said, “Look, I don’t think this is going to work out. I don’t want either of us to waste our time,” and I said goodbye and left. It’s a good thing I wasn’t fooled by him, because later that week I met my husband, Michael, who, if he is a fool, is the same kind of fool I am.

Also, the next time I went back to my favorite restaurant, the waiter (who was no damn fool) told me that the staff who saw everything loved it when I walked out.

Here are some quotes about fools:

I obviously don’t write for fools.

In my images for today, can you spot the fool who took the photos?

Somebody who is no fool shared that image on Twitter yesterday in honor of National Crayon Day.

Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “fools.”

I look forward to reading all the comments on this “fools” post and thanks to all who helped me create it, including YOU.
