April Fool's Day

I have never been one to do much to anyone on April Fools Day, but today was different...

I decided last week that I wanted to do something to shaylee, since she is rather gullible. :) I knew I wanted to do something related to the wedding, since that can be a high stress topic. Heather warned me that I couldnt mess with the wedding actually happening, that was too over the top. After thinking it over, I decided to do something concerning our honeymoon.

Justin and I talked about it, and we decided on a fire happening at our hotel, leaving us without reservations. Justin made me promise I would use some of the things from the Welshly Arms SNL skit with Will Ferrell. I made sure to tell her Mom, knowing Shay would call her about it. Here is what I did.

I created a fake email from Marriott Customer Service saying there had been a fire. I read this to Shay, then told her I had just gotten off the phone with Barbara Hernandez, our "customer service rep." She told me that since we made our reservation with Marriott Points, we were very low on the priority list for getting another reservation at a Marriott resort.

I then told her that Barbara suggested the Marriott Montana resort. She said honeymoon couples love it because the rooms are nice and there is nothing to do. (Sorry Trent...) She being the great person she is, was trying to be very positive. I also tried to be positive, telling her that maybe we could get in to some other Marriott hotel. I told her I would work on it.

After institute, I told her that I had found some cool stuff to do. Like helping out on a ranch, an all day horseback ride, etc. At this point she asked me if this was all a joke, but I told her that I had the email to prove it!

Finally, I decided to tell her it was all a joke. I called her and asked her to come over so I could show her something. She came over and I showed her the email as I was pulling up the SNL skit on my computer. I sat her down, and once she saw the Welshly Arms neon sign, which I had said was the name of the resort, she figured out what was going on. She wouldnt look at me for the next few minutes! I am sure she is laughing now, but she got pretty worked up about the whole thing. She hadnt had the greatest day to start with, then I did this to her! It was a great first April Fools Day entry.

Man Poor Shaylee! Honeymoon in Montana? You'd be better off getting a motel 6 room there in Cedar (if there is one) for a week. HA! Sorry Shay! You are allowed to beat him up now that you two are engaged. He may look big but he's not all that tough...(yeah, you heard me bro, eres mas debil que una mujer! :))

Trent said...

There's all kinds of stuff to do in Montana! Like...uh...ummm...hold on, hold on...I'll think of something and get back to you later.

Heather said...

Don't knock honeymoons in Cedar. Us poor folk may have done that.

Dude,
Nice try, but since you will be on your honeymoon, does it really matter where you go? The inside of a hotel room is the same anywhere in the world.
P'shaw

I guess you guys could go shoot some coyotes. Not very romantic though.

Angela and Mike said...

Ouch...I am gullible too, but Mike knows not to mess with me. The after-reaction anger he has decided isn't worth it. haha. I hope Shay has forgiven you!
