I once told a woman that I loved her as an April fools joke.
I should apologize to the universe for some of the horrible practical jokes I have pulled over my lifetime. You might say, "Victor, why not apologize to the people you pulled the jokes on?"
I am not apologizing to those people because none of them are mad at me (anymore). But I just want the universe to know that I am aware that I am tempting Karma and should think twice before pulling another "scheme".
