April Fools Early

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?

Ha, hilarious. Kinda feel like Jose's parents are like, "what are you guys waiting for" - they would be so disappointed if we pulled this joke, would still be tempting though ;)

cold water in the shower is the BEST reason to have a live in boyfriend!!!!!!

It never gets old, and i laugh until I cry and my stomach is in knots!

p.s. pretending to be pregnant is bad karma! i bet the pregnant gods will bestow a child upon you now.
