Happy April Fool's Day

My boyfriend and I have only been dating for about three weeks. We just recently starting telling people we were together which is why we thought it would be funny to get engaged on Facebook for April Fool's. I didn't think that we would really fool anyone other than anyone who we hadn't really seen us in a few years and didn't know better. Little did I know how serious Facebook relationship statuses actually are.

The best reaction was my father. Seven minutes after we posted it, I got a phone call from him. The first words out of his mouth were, "Are you engaged?" I could tell he was in no mood to be toyed with so I just said, "Happy April Fool's!" He must have been about to release a wave of anger and fury because he paused for a minute and then said, "Oh.... Oh. Oh that is pretty funny Maryn. Wow, you definitely got me. I'm not even going to tell you what I was saying to your mother."

When I asked him how he had found out, he said that two different girls from our church had texted him and asked him if I was engaged. He said no and asked why they thought that. They said it was on FB and so my sister went online to check and sure enough - that is what it said. That is when the yelling began.

Here are some of my other favorite comments:

?wow i didn't even get a text or a phone call....... :(

You are messing with people's minds because for all we know, you and Nate are one of those crazy couples who would get engaged after like 2 weeks of dating. But I still don't believe you.

And my personal favorite:

It's about time!
