Be an April Fool

My meta-analysis of April Fools' Day Facebook posts reveal the secluded and hidden desires we harbor.  April Fools functions as a "safe" way to made outlandish claims, unlikely realizations, and contrary observations.  I've had single friends claim to be getting married, Republicans claiming to love Obamacare, and vegetarians deciding to eat meat again.

Try it.  Give yourself permission to BE an April Fool, rather than the usual effort to fool others (what has become known as "trolling" on the Internet).  Try something foolish, walk on the wild side, do something different today.  Just make sure that you will be able to wake up tomorrow and go back to your old self - or don't!

For example, rather than being fooled into a "Rick Roll," at some point I realized that I really LIKE Rick Astley's hit single "Never Gonna Give You Up" and would never give him up. Try it!
