April Fools Day

I've had several conversations with people asking about April Fools pranks. I have to tell them that in our family we don't do April Fools Day. Most folks know that my associate attorney who works with me, Kristina Eno, is also my daughter. What you don't know is that her birthday is April 1st. When she was little she was always mortified that the other kids were playing jokes on each other. It also diverted attention from any attempt at school to recognize her birthday.

It's also given me an appreciation and understanding, and sympathy, for others whose birthdays fall on holidays. I also had some of that from my childhood as my sister was born on December 31st, right between Christmas and New Years on New Years Eve.
