April 15th - Fools of April
Do you ever, say, have half a bottle of wine with a friend, and come up with an absolutely brilliant idea? Then, when the sunlight streams through the blinds in the morning, making your temples pound, you realize your brilliant idea wasn’t exactly….brilliant?
Everyone does things we regret. For instance, not taking that last slice of pizza, not standing up for yourself, dropping out of school or committing arson.
There are levels to this, of course.
And on a side note, please don’t commit arson. It’s just mean.
I’m here to tell you something everyone should have already told you. Don’t have a cocktail on an empty stomach. I thought I was safe since it was only one beer on St. Patty’s day in college. I had, however, not taken into account that I hadn’t eaten since the day before or slept in over 48 hours on account of midterm projects being due that week.
Let me tell you, I never made that mistake again.
What we are about to do might be a mistake.
But it might not. It could be brilliant for all we know.
We’ll let you know in the morning.
