I'm not much of a practical joker.
Other than throwing cold water on the BF in the shower (only because he does the same thing to me), I don't really play jokes on him.
In anticipation of April Fool's, the BF and I decided to play a little joke on his family this past weekend. There have a been a lot of big announcements from his brothers with both of them getting married this year, so we thought we should pretend we got engaged. (FYI - we are not engaged.)
While driving, the BF thought it would be better if we told them I was knocked up instead of engaged.
"I don't think I'll be able to keep a straight face but it will be hilarious," he says after he shares his hilarious idea. But I can!
After being there for about 15 minutes, I said that the BF and I had something important to tell everyone and explained that I wasn't fat but rather we were pregnant.
Now, apparently I was incredibly believable because jaws dropped, "OH MY GODs" were shrieked and even a few "You'vvvveee got to be kidding me's!"
If I pulled this one in front of my parents, they would've laughed at me and called bullshit early on. Although we've been dating for 4 and a half years, I'm pretty sure his family doesn't get my humor or are incredibly gullible.
His mom eventually calmed down, his dad finally heard what I said that caused everyone to laugh, and she came back into the room to only hear his future sister-in-law say "well, you could be pregnant and not know it," which caused me to give her the shut-the-hell-up sign.
I do believe I pulled off my first joke pretty damn well, don't you?
