I don't seem to be able to write much in this space lately, seized with an atypical silence that is coming from a place deeply embedded in my cells. Or something like that.
The job today was overspilling with April Fool's jokes, starting with a faked bloody hand photo (my hand, perylene maroon paint as blood) on facebook: "On the way to get stitches".
We removed all but one of the "8.2" candy from the tin where it's stashed, sending M. into a minor tizzy.
I taped the toilet seat down with an "OUT OF ORDER" sign.
And lastly, I spun a fictional story to G. about an intimate relationship with a police detective we all know, and had him fooled for a good thirty minutes. G. even gave me relationship advice! I hadn't realized how adept I seem to be at, ahem, lying.
In case there's any question: yes, we also worked! Hard and diligently! Laughing!
