Monday 1st April, 2024

I got April fooled this morning before I even woke up.

I was having this dream, and you know how real they can be, and I realised that given my birthdate and the year, I was only actually 18 years old.

What great fortune. To be so young. Thank god for that, I’d been labouring under the impression that I was 51. But actually, I’m on the cusp of adult life.

This news that I was now only 18 filled me with hope for the future, that everything was solvable and that I have a lot more time left to do the things I want to do. Also, I seemed to have all this handy wisdom. My God, success awaits.

I did wonder why my knees were sore at such a young age, but I thought: “No matter, I’m young enough to work that out.”

But then I woke up and I was actually still 51. Doh.

April fool on me. Hope your one was more fun.

Music Round Clue for Amber Rose

This is some old school ballad action from the smoothest guy in music: LIONEL RICHIE, (aka “The Biscuit”). It’s in the music round at the Amber Rose tonight. In the video he drives around a bit in a car, in England, with the Commodores (even though he’s been solo for 2 years by this time this record was released), so I’ve no idea what’s going on there. But the song is smooth and catchy. Enjoy.
