I hate being made to look like a fool...
Does anyone really like it? Or are some of you just better sports than I am and you don't mind giving the obligatory har-dee-har-har chuckle?
Yes, yes, some of those silly food pranks you can pull on your kids look clever and fun. Beyond that? I really don't like it.
I think some of it comes from the fact that I can be trusting and gullible at times and then I feel deceived. I can get caught up or genuinely worried and then people pull the rug out and-- ha, ha, ha-- wasn't that hysterical? You TOTALLY fell for it, JessieLeigh!
Well, yes, yes I did. And this emotional roller coaster is not one bit fun.
So... I guess what I'm getting at is this.
Please, I beg of you, please, for the love, know your audience. Is it good-natured fun that all will enjoy? Are you both pranksters who enjoy one-upping each other? Go to it.
But, much like Halloween, could we just leave trusting ol' JessieLeigh out of it?
