FOR CHILDREN

Nobody's fool

April first, and time to get up. Getting dressed, Tricia put on her skirt and sweater, and reached for her shoes—the slip-on type, quick and easy in the morning. She glanced at herself in the mirror—hair tidy, face clean. Tricia liked to look smart for school.

A little later as she ran into the classroom a friend called out, "Hey! your shoelace is undone." Tricia didn't even bother to look down. "I've not got shoelaces," she laughed. Then quickly someone else said, "Your sweater's back to front." Tricia just smiled. It wasn't, and she knew it wasn't. April fool tricks like that wouldn't catch her.
