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.
