#1 So I decided that I needed to pull an April Fool's Joke. And so I decided to use Facebook to announce my mission call. I was called to Edinburgh Scotland and I'm leaving May 27.
Believe it or not I got congrats from at least 13 people! All telling me what an awesome missionary I'm going to be.
Sadly though, I did not actually get my mission call. But it was an awesome feeling to know I had the support of so many people. I will be really blessed when I do go. Here's hoping I can after I graduate. So the next time a mission call is posted on facebook, it will be real! But it will be over a year from now if I'm lucky.
I also called my Mom up and acted like I'd been in a car accident. - Yeah she didn't believe it.
#2 You know you have an awesome friend when they go out of their way to pull an April Fool's joke on you alone.
So the other day well April 1st. I got a text from an old roommate/ good friend Heather. And here's the general gist of our conversation.
H:So do you remember Jason we've been hanging out a lot lately.
M: Disneyworld guy ?
H: "Yeah. And well, we caught 'Spring Fever' "
And I'm going oh really.
Me: So when did this become offical? & does that me you owe me M&Ms? (given to roommates when they hold hands).....
H: What kind of ice cream do you want?
M: Ice cream (kiss) really when did this happen?.... go out for ice cream if I can pull you away from the boy or a carton?
M: Why not out for ice cream going to be with your boy all weekend?
H: He's going to be in Utah this weekend for conference.
M: you still didn't say when it happened.
H: I will tell you later I have homework.
H: You didn't say what kind.
M: If this isn't an April Fools's joke Beaver tracks or Chocolate Chip. But you haven't told me anything about this relationship.
H: If this was a joke do you honestly think I would voluntarily buy you ice cream?
M: Well then I could give you a ride to Broulims tonight I need to get something there too.
H: Are you kidding? I am so poor right now. I can't even afford ice cream for myself right now.
I ended up talking to her later that night and she still wouldn't go into detail about anything just that she would get me some and I was like if this is an April Fool's joke you still owe me ice cream. It's the week of doom (aka the major stress week that comes the week before Finals, as an education major usually this week is worse than finals week) and you will only make it worse if you back out on the ice cream.
The next day, I cornered her in class. She tried to avoid the subject, talking to all of our neighboring students, ignoring the questions, until I finally got it out of her that no, she was still VL.
Evidently she had actually planned a whole show for me. Jason was going to join us for Devotional the day before her original texts but he had got delayed and couldn't come. Then I started asking about April Fools and she wouldn't comment about when the relationship started and i got suspicious. Then she said she was going to bring a carton into class with a note on it saying April Fool's but she couldn't get to the store that morning.
Well either way Heather did get me my Chocolate Chip ice cream- Dreyer's Double Churned even!! And just in time for me to have a picker-upper during my final late nighter.
Thanks Heather. It basically made my day to get the ice cream and even the whole story that you tried to orchastrate made me feel loved. And good job going with the kiss instead of the fake engagement. It was more realistic. But I also know that I would have heard more about the relationship if you were actually in one. We know way to much about each other for you to leave out the small detail of a relationship.
And also like 2 days before you had sent me a text complaining about how annoying it was to see people kissing on campus. I couldn't see you switching philosopies that quickly.
And another clue- I know you and something like a kiss would have you chatting up a storm and sharing details! And you definately would not be going, "i've got homework"
But yeah Awesome April Fool's Day!
