April Fools fun with Stephen

I'm a lot of fun to have around on April Fool's Day:
Person: Today is April Fool's Day, 'huh?
Me: Oh man. I'm such an idiot. Gary got me with the Obama coming to campus thing. There was that video about the statues outside of the library actually being giant energy converters that take electricity out of the air. I'm hopeless. Just hopeless.
Person: Yeah, people do play a lot of practical jokes on April Fool's Day.
Me: Definately. And I'm so damn gullible.
Person: Oh hey, I forgot to tell you! I won the lottery yesterday!
Me: Wha-!? Really!? Omigod, man, that's great! Congratulations!

And so on and on and on.

Today, I turned in my last marked essay for this Master of Research that I'm doing and it will be, if Thor wills it, my last marked essay, ever, in my career as a human being. How do I feel about this? Melancholy, obviously.
