My calendar tells me today is April Fool’s Day. My mother and I typically like to make some sort of joke, usually silly or lame, but it’s still in good fun.
This year, however, in thinking of what might be funny, I can’t for the life of me imagine a situation that might happen to us here that I would want to tell my mother -- even as a joke!
“Hey mom, Adam’s in prison!” ... not funny.
“The chimps have been seized by the Congolese government!” ... not funny.
“There was a riot at the prison in Aketi!” ... SO not funny.
We’ll be in Rwanda by later today. Maybe things will feel funnier there!
