The Joke’s On You

April Fools use to be much different when we were kids. Now that we are adults, it gets increasingly difficult to decipher what’s the reality or someone is playing a joke on you. (Or perhaps I’ve become gullible as an adult — can that happen?)

With a lot of misinformation on the Internet, it doesn’t help the case of figuring out what’s real and what’s not. When we were kids it was easier to blatantly see if something was possible or not. Now, we’re not exactly sure because the world is full of possibilities. As improbable as it is for a pandemic to stop all aspects of life, we’re finally gaining a sense of a new reality. Last year seemed like a joke when it came to the beginning of this coronavirus era.

A year later, we’re not as naive as we were before and hopefully there’s a light at the end of this tunnel soon for all.
