“Dad, I just drank a whole case of beer and am drunk as hell,” I told my father last night in a slurred drunken voice over the phone.
“Where did you get it?” He asked. “I thought you were broke. I just don’t know what we are going to do with you.”
“APRIL FOOLS!” I hollered out laughing, discarding the drunken timbre to my voice.
My father burst out laughing as well and was so relieved it was an April fool’s joke.
“You really had me going,” He said. “You sounded so drunk over this phone.”
“I just couldn’t resist,” I said. “I apologize.”
“No, don't apologize,” He said. “I love it. I deserved that.”
We said our goodbyes and hung up the phone with me still smiling and chuckling. Ya just gotta laugh along with me and not at me. I can be so mischievous sometimes.
