after which you will be immune to
the April Fool's Tricks!!!
don't forget that tomorrow is the day
when the White Rabbit
looks for homage
from readers of Alice in Wonderland
And there's no fooling around with the white rabbit...
he is fanatically aware of the time!!
It behooves one to properly
acknowledge his day
at the beginning of April,
if you expect to enjoy all the delights
of this coy month...April can be a terrible flirt!!
lice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank,
and of having nothing to do:
once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading,
but it had no pictures or conversations in it, `and what is the use of a book,’ thought Alice `without pictures or conversation?’
So she was considering in her own mind
(as well as she could, for the hot day made her feel very sleepy and stupid),
whether the pleasure of making a daisy-chain would be worth the trouble
of getting up and picking the daisies,
when suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her.
There was nothing so VERY remarkable in that;
nor did Alice think it so VERY much out of the way to hear the Rabbit say to itself
`Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be late!’
(when she thought it over afterwards, it occurred to her that she ought to have wondered at this,
but at the time it all seemed quite natural);
but when the Rabbit
actually TOOK A WATCH OUT OF ITS WAISTCOAT- POCKET,
and looked at it, and then hurried on,
Alice started to her feet,
for it flashed across her mind that she had never before
seen a rabbit with either a waistcoat-pocket, or a watch to take out of it,
and burning with curiosity, she ran across the field after it,
and fortunately was just in time to see it
pop down a large rabbit-hole under the hedge."
