My son is acting in a play at the High school. I'm not thrilled with their choice of play, and feel the theme is too adult for High school teenagers, but that's another story. So last night was the opening night of the play. My son hinted that it would be nice if we brought flowers.
I asked my husband to stop at Costco and pick up some flowers on his way home. I divided them in half and tied each half with a ribbon. After the play, when the actors all came out of the theater, I gave one bunch to my son, and the other to our former Bishop's daughter who is also in the play. They weren't too fancy, but it's the thought that counts, right?
So tonight I decided to go to the play again to show support for my son. As I thought about the flowers I gave him, and also remembered the date, I decided to play a little prank on him. When he came out of the theater at the end of the play, I happily presented him with a nicely bow-tied bunch of fresh.......green.....celery. He grabbed it and melodramatically said, "And I'd like to thank my mother, and ...and....." I put my arm around him and said, "April Fools" :D
