I hate April Fool’s day. We spend enough time celebrating foolish behavior all year long. I’d like to have a day where we all try to make smart productive decisions instead. Could we all pull off 24hrs of wisdom? My cynicism says no. That said, I think this joke by Lisa Rinna poking fun at Brandi’s stupid wig remarks on the last episode of RHOBH is pretty fucking funny. I love Rinna, she doesn’t take herself too seriously. She is passionate about a lot of things. Her mouth sometimes gets her in trouble. She is often misunderstood. I think we could have been separated at birth, actually. I noticed a quote on her Instagram today that said, ” Relax. We are all crazy. It’s not a competition.” I think I need to add that to my TT T-shirt list.
In the spirit of my anti April Fools theme, I’m declaring today Wisdom Day. It’s the first day of the second quarter of 2016. If you are like me, you ate a full pint of pineapple coconut ice cream last night because it was half price at Publix. Then you realize that the calories remain at their full price for effects on your body. Those “not resolutions ” at the beginning of the year are all but forgotten. I literally bought the shoes but they never made it to the treadmill.
On Wisdom Day, it’s time to resolve to do a little bit better. Make wise decisions today. Eat things that honor your body. Get ready to plant your obligatory tomato plant. Get a haircut, or a manipedi, or a massage, or just give your face a nice homemade mask. There are nine months left in 2016. That’s enough time to make a baby. Surely then it is enough time to pull yourself out of the depression, boredom, general malaise hole you may find yourself in and just GET UP.
Now go do something wise.
P.S. This is an open forum.
P.P.S. Don’t believe everything you read today folks. Lisa Rinna is not bald. Trader Joes is not closing in 2017. Etc. But you can share your “favorite” prank here if you are into that sort of thing.
