For April Fool this year, I was going to spin a tale of how I'd accepted a request to stand for election for Congress in 2022 and would be beginning my campaign immediately after this year's election. I think it would have been totally believable and fooled many of you.
Due to the current world situation, I clue you into my planned prank and then ensure you know that it would have been a prank and hope that you get a grin imagining how it might have played out.
April Fool is out of bounds this year - but humor still helps.
Unless you think it would have been a crappy Fool, in which case I still love you, but you're wrong ;)
(I encourage everyone to post what they would have done, in the bounds of good taste, but not actually pull the prank itself)
Universal has chosen to release some moves direct to digital in this time of "shelter in place." For $20, you can get "The Hunt," a film that should be in the theaters, to watch at home for 48 hours. This is great, as we're all going to need entertainment and lots of it. And for $20, a family of four is seeing this film at a price much less than they'd pay in a first-run theater.
My only concern? Those who invite all the neighbors over to save even more money. Because that's not social distancing, is it?
Please think about this before you do such a thing. It could save your life or the life of an at-risk loved one.
Any other time, I'd see these ludicrously cheap fares to Tokyo as a reason to do a mileage run and enjoy a few days in a great city.
And then I realize why travel prices are falling through the floor and plan my next trip to Costco, instead.
