    UPDATE: My dad is improving (although we still have to convince him to go to the doctor). Thank you for your thoughts and prayers in his regard. I still need to rest a bit more, but will be back as soon as I'm able.

    A big thank you to @sweedle for co-hosting the #cees_para_u challenge with me, I really appreciate it!! ♥️

    ATTENTION PARTICIPANTS OF THE #CEES_PARA_U CHALLENGE: I had deactivated both of my accounts for Mother's Day weekend and I had expected to be back earlier this week, but unfortunately my father had a bad accident, so I've been preoccupied with getting that sorted out with my family.
    I'm reactivating my accounts for now, but my presence will be somewhat limited due to the aforementioned circumstances and my own ongoing health issues.
    For those of you whose submission has not yet been read, I will get to them as soon as possible. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding. ♥️

    The idea of a doppelganger version of myself existing in a parallel universe simultaneously fascinates me and freaks me out, so I figure it makes for an intriguing challenge concept. Read on for challenge rules and requirements please.

    CHALLENGE OBJECTIVE: Imagine you looked into the mirror and suddenly had the ability to peer into parallel universes, particularly one where a different version of yourself currently exists.
    Pen a poetic/prose piece that provides a detailed explanation of what that experience would be like, including a full character review of your "other self." This parallel self would look just like you, but the personality, life, living conditions, habits, beliefs, etc., would be totally different.
    Put your best creative efforts forward and dust off the old imagination for this challenge!

    *One submission per person, penned in English.

    REFRAIN FROM THE FOLLOWING:
    -Plagiarism
    -Heated political/religious topics
    -Inappropriate language/content
    -Offensive/foul language or topics
    -Hate speech, harassment, or bullying

    DURATION: This challenge will be open for 48 hours from the time of posting. It's over when it says "2d" in the upper right corner of this post.

    MANDATORY HASHTAG: Please use #cees_para_u for this challenge only.

    TAGGING: When participating in the challenges, please tag this account, not my main one. I won't see it there.

    ��CLOSED CHALLENGE. PLEASE AWAIT THE NEXT ONE.��

    An attribute is a quality or characteristic that an individual possesses. My personal favorite is humility because it leads to an attitude of gratitude and humanitarianism. It also helps to subdue the ego.

    A few favorite April Fool's Day related quotes:

    "Lord, what fools these mortals be."
    ~Shakespeare

    Preach it, Shakespeare! ��

    "Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me."
    ~Attributed to several different people, and classified as a Greek and Japanese proverb, so I really don't know. I guess the joke's on me for this one. ����‍♀️��

    "Our wisdom comes from our experience, and our experience comes from our foolishness."
    ~Sacha Guitry

    Makes sense to me! ��

    "Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt."
    ~Abraham Lincoln

    Right on Abe Lincoln, right on! ��

    "You can fool all the people some of the time and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time."
    ~Abraham Lincoln

    Hmm, I question this one... ��

    "I am sick to death of cleverness. Everybody is clever nowadays. You can’t go anywhere without meeting clever people. The thing has become an absolute public nuisance. I wish to goodness we had a few fools left."
    ~Oscar Wilde, The Importance of Being Earnest

    Many thanks to @in_fragments for the awesome Oscar Wilde quote contribution!

    Happy April Fool's Day, everyone!!
    Did you know that April Fool's Day has been celebrated for many centuries by various different cultures, yet its origin is still a mystery to this day?! Neither did I, so we both learned something!

    CHALLENGE OBJECTIVE: Have you ever pulled an April Fool's Day prank on someone or had one pulled on you? I'd love to hear about it in a factual, true tale today.
    Conversely, you can pen about the best April Fool's Day prank you've ever heard of. ✍️

    One submission per participant, penned in English please; and be sure that your submission adheres to all the Terms of Use of this forum because I really don't feel like writing them all out today.

    DURATION: This challenge will be open for April 1st only (per the Mountain Standard timezone/U.S.). No joke.

    MANDATORY HASHTAG: Be sure to use #cees_afc (in your caption area) for this challenge only.

    TAGGING: When participating in the challenges, please tag this account, not my main one.

    *Don't forget to support your fellow participants by checking out their submissions, commenting, and reposting! ✍️

    CHALLENGE DETAILS: I could do with a humorous distraction right now; therefore, the topic of today's challenge will be Pet Peeves.
    The term "pet peeve" refers to something that really annoys you. For example, one person's pet peeve might be the sound of people chewing their food. Someone else might be annoyed by finding crumbs in the butter dish or peanut butter in the jelly. Perhaps you're annoyed by bad drivers, certain odors, or people talking in the movie theater. The possibilities are endless!
    Determine what your biggest pet peeve is, and write a humorous, poetic depiction of it for us, in 40 lines or less. Be creative, try to provide real life examples/experiences, and do your best to make us laugh!
    One submission per participant, penned in English please.

    *Submissions should be lighthearted and entertaining, not insulting, derogatory, or offensive.*

    *Please allow up to several days for me to see all submissions.

    REFRAIN FROM THE FOLLOWING:
    -Plagiarism
    -Heated political/religious topics
    -Inappropriate language/content
    -Offensive/foul language or topics

    DURATION: This challenge will be open for 48 hours from the time of posting. It's over when it says "2d" in the upper right corner of this post.
