This is my evil sister.
On April 1, she posted her decision about which school to go to for her Master's in Social Work. I knew she had applied to more than one school but I wasn't too concerned about the schools she applied to.
All us siblings have done our share of traveling, especially her. She's been Guatemala, London and been a Trail Walker with the Anasazi Foundation in Arizona. So she is all about adventure.
When she announced her decision to go to China for her MSW. I had not heard about the application but was not surprised that she would seek the opportunity. But for two years? That's a long time, and she would be away from boys that she could date and marry (yes, I'm opinionated about that). So, I wanted to see what her motivation was. I called her right then.
Bits of our conversation:
Keri:..."You're totally not excited for me?!"
Me:..."I'm excited for you, its just a long time."
I'm still thinking in my head. Wow she'll come back and be totally awesome at speaking Chinese. And... I wonder how expensive it would be to visit her while she's there.
Finally near the end she said, "I'm so glad you called, cause it's just an April Fools joke."
I can't believe it and I fell for it so hard that I called her. Well done. Just wait until next year.
