I am a terrible liar. Like I can't lie even if my life depended on it. Somehow someone believed me today.
So it was like 10 p.m. April 1st and all my roomies are checking Facebook and sharing all of the hilarious April Fool's Day pranks everyone pulled on each other (you know like the typical "I'm engaged!") and I get this idea. I send a text to my mom simply saying, "I think I broke my leg." ...no response. So I sent another text that said, "I will call you when they get done with the x-ray." My mom called me 3 minutes later. I just told her that I would call her back but we were about to do the x-ray. I had to cut the conversation short because as soon as I hung up the phone my roomies and I were all laughing so hard.
Then, while I was "getting my leg x-rayed", we looked up leg x-rays Google and found one to send to my mom in about 15 minutes (because that's the amount of time it would take to get an x-ray, right?). Well my impatient mom couldn't handle it so she called after like 10 minutes. I told her the story about how my knee gave out when I was walking down the molding stairs at my apartment (they really are molding) and feel down. She totally bought it. But then I couldn't take it anymore so I said "April Fool's!"
...I haven't heard my mom say my full name in a long time.
