So what you’re telling me is you like big announcement posts? Judging by the explosion of hits my ‘we’re moving to Florida‘ announcement got yesterday I’d say you do. I don’t blame you. Announcements are exciting, dramatic and joyful.
How let down are you going to be then to be met with a plain old Tuesday blog post today?
Had I remembered that today was April Fool’s, oh let’s say yesterday, I may have postponed my announcement just to see how many of you believed me. Truth is we are moving and even a prank-loving girl like me knows misleading you that way is just…completely expected. Kind of like the rest of these overused Facebook jokes.
If I were going to do an April Fool’s joke related to our move, I would text Matt, who just landed in Bosnia on less than 3 hours of sleep, and tell him that I was reconsidering the house we are set to move into in Florida later this month. That I’d rather get a place on the water in Siesta Key and that I’m considering opening a yoga studio.
Well I would have nailed it if he hadn’t of gone all supportive on me and my fake attempt at a new life of zen.
An April Fool’s Tip: Know your target’s weaknesses. Trust is your weapon.

And while I do have one prank out of the way on this April Fool’s Day, I don’t feel like I’m at the top of my game. You see, I’m tired. I accompanied my cousins to the Bastille show last night at the Riviera and while they put on a great set, I was ever-so-cognizant of my increasing age throughout the night:
6:15 p.m.-This line is all kids. (you’re old)
Seriously though, everyone is either 17 or 50. (you’re old, they’re older)
6:30-I’ve never seen so many selfies in my whole life (you’re old)
6:45-Ok there’s a bar. That’s a good sign (I’m too tired to drink)
7:15-The opener hasn’t even come on and my feet hurt already (you’re old)
7:30- Everyone is snapchatting. Turns to cousins. Do you guys use SnapChat? They don’t. (whew, me neither)
8:30-OK that couple is totally in their late twenties. I’m good. (are you though?)
8:45- It’s official. I’m going to lose a little bit of hearing after this is over. Are those girls crying with joy right now? (they are)
9:30- They don’t seriously expect us to jump up and down do they? (they do)
9:50- These guys are good. I should add them to my Pandora. Do you guys use Pandora? (they don’t)
10:00- Great show. I can’t wait to get up for work tomorrow. (you’re old)
Have a good day. Stay alert my friends!
