Holidays....ever heard of em?

I recently realized that Kate and I don't really like holidays, unless they are noteworthy, BIG, celebratory holidays.  Basically, we LOVE Christmas! Okay, okay we appreciate any holiday where we get a day off. But embracing and celebrating holidays besides Christmas, count us out! Sure.....we enjoy Thanksgiving and the 4th of July, but any other holiday, Nah!  New Years: super over rated, Valentines Day: neither one of us is romantic so NOPE,  St. Patrick's Day: yuck, it just gives adults an excuse to wear weird stuff like green wigs and face paint, April Fools Day: every teachers nightmare. "You're the worst teacher ever Miss C., APRIL FOOLS!!"  The list goes on and on. Well ladies and gents I am here to tell you about an exceptional April Fools Day had by yours truly.  I didn't believe it was possible, but I was proved wrong.  Here's a fool proof way to ensure a bitchin' April Fools day (pun intended).

I was visiting my brother's family in Kansas City. My brother is a doctor but he is still very much a child at heart.  By far one of the funniest/weirdest people I know.  I was enjoying the day with him and his family when I started getting all these weird texts and calls about a flat screen TV I was supposedly "giving away." I could not figure out why I was getting these weird calls, so I called my go to gal Ally and the same thing was happening to her.  Eventually we figured out that our home teacher had put an ad up on Craigslist saying that one of us had had an awful breakup and we were getting rid of our boyfriend's TV. Ally and I laughed a little about it but mostly we were very confused for a large portion of the day.  What a perfect prank to pull on your friends and loved ones, right?  Confusing yet hilarious for the person posting the ad. Well Cody and I decided to pay it forward. We put up an ad in Kate's name for a Les Paul guitar for a ridiculous price.  Kate's phone turned off because she got so many calls and texts in such a short period of time! NAILED IT!  After we laughed until we cried. We decided to continue to pay it forward to my bro Scott in Montana.  We put up an ad for his raft and trailer- his most prized possessions.  This guy was bombarded by the whole state of Montana inquiring about his ad.  Cody and I were dying, I've never had a more hysterical April Fools Day.  I guess it's what you make of it, right? Cheers to embracing more holidays.  Shabbat Shalom!

For whatever reason I couldn't help but add some weird pics. You're Welcome.
