Default Apology for the prank

Sorry if I hurt anyone's feelings. Evil thought it would be funny and I was more than happy to go along with it, figuring that everyone would get that it's an April Fools joke. I was incorrect and I know that some people got upset about it. I want no ill will and hope that the ones that were unnerved by my post will forgive me.

I'm over it already. Besides, I got to watch you make cheese and pasta all day.

It was all supposed to be in good fun. Yes, I aske Laurel to help me out with it because we thought it'd be funny. So I am sorry if people really were worried about me for nothing.

I didn't think it was hilarious, but I didn't think it was sick, either. No problem from me. I LOVE both of your new avatars, BTW!

Laurel,
For me, that one hit close to home. I nearly lost my best friend in college the same way. He was on his way to work one morning, and a drunk ran a red light and side-swiped his VW Corrado. I got a call a few hours later informing me of the accident. It was a sad week, and the post brought back some memories.
I'm glad everyone is o.k. I'm not trying to interject one of my own life's experiences onto the forum. I know that every funny joke needs a thread of truth/plausibility. That particular one hit a bit close to home for me.

Like I said, I'm glad everyone is fine.

Better knock on some wood my friend, before something unfortunate DOES happen.

No big for either of you.

I actually posted my "disgust" response as an April fools counter to your April fools. But...then things just kind of ran away.

Apology appreciated, accepted and acknowledged as good sportsmanship.

I was not offended, but I am very hard to offend. I don't believe anything I read on the internet anyway, especially today

My boss emailed a "Resignation" letter to the whole division today that nearly gave everyone a heart attack. That was not cool.
