Hey Everyone! :-)
Happy April Fools Day! :-) Agent Thoth discusses more of the trials and tribulations associated with living with hominids. Incidentally, if you've missed Agent Thoth's earlier entries, you can find them here: Thoth's Journal

Agent Thoth's Personal Log
Day Eleven-Hundred-Twelve:My hominid-servant has spent the day setting up silly pranks for my fellow quadrupedal residents of my domicile and myself to fall victim to. For instance, she set up a device that projects laser beams at random. She did so knowing that the dancing dots of light would prove completely irresistible to any living being whose instincts haven’t been dulled to the point of nonexistence by the type of overly-controlled, artificial environment hominids seem to prefer.
After my youthful companion and I had exhausted ourselves chasing the ephemeral lures, my hominid-servant deactivated the machine and bellowed the words “April Fools!” as if they were an incantation. She similarly tricked the canid by miming as if she had thrown a bauble the canid is particularly fond of. When the idiotic creature dashed away in an attempt to follow the nonexistent treat, my hominid-servant made the same declaration, “April Fools!"
April, in case anyone there at Agency Headquarters is unaware, is the designation the hominids from the part of this planet that I’m stationed on have given to a certain portion of the planet’s revolution around the central star of this solar system. However, the connection between astrometry and my hominid-servant’s foolishness escapes me. Once again, I find myself despairing over the increasing unlikelihood of ever finding definitive proof of intelligent life on this planet.
