be prepared....

Many autistic people experience problems with understanding jokes.
They take language literally, and they experience difficulties in "reading faces".

For themapril 1, or april fool's day, is a difficult day, because they might get involved in an april joke and act with full sincerity, only to discover that someone else has used them to play a game.

When you experience those problems be aware that everything which is not part of your daily routine and which is unusual might be an april 1 joke.

It helps to look well at the context of the issue you're faced with and to consider if the issue is not normal for the other person either.

Good luck!
