Today I was reflecting on the theme of "Silliness" for a daily photography challenge that I'm participating in this month, over on instagram (instagram.com/melanieylang). I am, and have always been, somewhat uncomfortable with what I perceive as "silly" behaviour in others, even though I'm not beyond a bit of silliness myself. So when someone made a joking comment today about me playing an April Fools Day prank, my reaction was a little extreme, which then sent me scurrying to the internet to see what's been written by others with AS about their tolerance for tomfoolery. It seems I am in good company; I found this blog post, and forwarded it to the person whose comments I had found challenging, which she took in good grace. I didn't need to do that for her, so much as for myself in my all-consuming need to not be misunderstood, and to provide others with knowledge to allow them to judge me fairly. What about you, what do you think of April Fools Day, and pranks in general?
