We don't need no education

Last night I left my cell phone unattended for a few hours. When I checked it, I had four missed calls from my ex-wife, but no message. I called back to see what was going on, and Togers answered. He sounded very down.

Me: What's going on?

Him: Dad? Mom told me I had to call you about my grades. I got three Ds and two Fs.

Me: [About to launch into a profanity laced tirade]

Him: April Fool's!!!

I can't believe I fell for it.

Some April Fool jokes are QUITE believable, lol.

Dee Ice Hole said...

HMMMM--sounds like he got the April Fools thing in pretty quick if he did it before you got to talk....GOOD ONE though.

He gotcha! :0)

Anonymous said... kids would have got me on that one, except they couldn't say "April Fools" because it would likely be true... :)

Heff, unfortunately, it WAS believable.

Dee Ice, he probably jumped in because of the long pause, and he knew what was about to come.

Inklings, he did.

Anonymous, I know. Kids can be frustrating, eh?
