Someone known for his intense, often horrific, prose and poetry seems an odd character to write something with such obvious wry humor. It's difficult to imagine Edgar Allan Poe as a poster child for April Fools Day or humor. The myth of him carries such darkness and dreariness with it. Yet the myth is not the man. He was loved. [His wife died of tuberculosis after 9 or 10 years of marriage; when he died, he was engaged to a widow who had previously been his first fiancee but married someone else while he was away.] So this master of the macabre was also a real person. Could have fooled me!
Are there famous people who fool you with their human qualities? Or someone you may know who shows a side of him/herself that fools or surprises you? What quality do you have that would fool others because it is not one they regularly see?
