Heading into the weekend of April Fools Day, today we talked about pranks and how people can approach this silly holiday to make the most of it. We had Rabbi Irwin Kula and Reverend Sherri Hausser on live to talk about the importance of being able to laugh at yourself and take life with a grain of salt. I am a big proponent of laughing at myself, and I often boast I can't be easily embarrassed because I'm so comfortable making fun of myself.
The best prank anyone has ever played on me happened during my senior year in college. One day I got home from a busy day and walked upstairs to my room only to find that I no longer had a door! For the next week I received ransom notes for my door and was left hanging a curtain to maintain some sense of privacy. I have to say that while at first I could laugh, by the end of one week (when the door was mercifully returned) I was not such a good sport anymore.
Would love to hear about some of the better pranks any of you have played or been "had" by...are you able to laugh at yourself?
