In honor of Valentines Day, I would like to share a recent conversation from Facebook which turned in to a practical joke. My initial post wasn’t intended to be a joke, but the first response gave me the perfect opportunity. Kind of like a volleyball bump and set for the perfect spike. I have posted a portion of the conversation below with usernames omitted to protect those taken in by my ruse and certain sentences edited for clarity. Enjoy:
Glen Woods: Announcements, AnNouncements, ANNOUNCEments, SHHHHHH.
Responder 1: I’m not good with suspense!
Glen Woods: I have decided to tie the knot!
Responder 1: Congratulations! That is so cool!
Responder 2: what KNOT??????
Glen Woods: The garbage bag. It needs a knot in order to throw it safely in the garbage bin. What did YOU think I was talking about?
Responder 3: So??? What is the big announcement???
Glen Woods: Responder 3, see above :)
Responder 3: OH MY GOODNESS… obviously didn’t see the hidden comments! I was so confused til I laughed … when I got to the garbage bag comment. Goodness we sure did take the bait on that one.
