A Short Message from a Stinky April Fish

Last Friday was Poisson d'avril, a.k.a. April Fool's day. As a dumb joke, I changed my Facebook status to "engaged." I thought that all of my French and American friends would see past the scheme and play along with it.

And they did.

However, my non-April-fool-celebrating Colombian cousin thought I was actually engaged.

Oops. Next year, I'll tape a paper fish to someone's back.

  1. LOL!! good one! though I didn't get to see on FB...I've been all of a sudden busy O_o

  2. So when do we get to met the lucky young man? ... What?

  3. I ALMOST did the exact opposite, but figured it would cause more trouble/confusion that it was worth.

    Instead, I managed to leave my trunk open for 2 days and get a dead battery (so I played the April Fools joke on myself!).

    Seriously?... Reeeally??... Seriously?



Apparently, leaving comments on this blog is a hit-or-miss game of Russian roulette: you are either lucky and can comment away, or you are required to log in when the settings are CLEARLY set to allow trouble-free commenting (sorry 'bout that, folks). If anything, the Facebook page is always a viable option. :) -Barb
