So, yesterday’s post was obviously an April Fool’s joke.
Obvious unless, of course, your computer doesn’t highlight text correctly.
As was the case for…
And my mother-in-law.
My own mother handled it quite well. She couldn’t highlight the text and she waited 45 minutes, worrying the entire time. Then she had my dad call me. He called my cell phone, which had recently switched and wasn’t working at the time. His thought?
Given what they had just read, they thought we had already closed down the phone line. Cutting costs and all that.
So, he called home and asked Heidi if I was home. She said I was at work and gave him the number. He thought that was strange but figured I just hadn’t told Heidi the news yet.
When he finally got a hold of me, I was horrified. Which was why I couldn’t stop laughing, apparently. When my mom heard it was a joke, I could hear her yelling in the background. Then she got on the phone and let me have it. Revenge has been promised, which Wandering Nana Linda warned me about.
So, I apologize. I will definitely do a better job next year. Although, it might be tough with two kids running around the house…
