My mean streak
"Hi Honey, how was your day! Guess what, I have exciting news! I have tickets for a lecture tonight."
"Tickets? As in two?
"Yes, we are so lucky. They are sold out but my friend Sue is sick and she gave them to me."
"Um, for tonight?"
"Yup. We will have to hurry, it's at University of the Fraser Valley, and it starts in an hour and a half. It will take almost that long to get there."
"Um, a lecture you said?
"Yes, about the archaeology of the Old Crow site in the Yukon. Dr. Harlan Smith is speaking! I can't wait!"
"You didn't tell me about this lecture Sweetie, I wish you had called."
"Sorry, my cell phone was dead. But you know how much I love archaeolgy, so I knew you would be excited to share this with me. It will be so INTERESTING. And afterword there is an open question session we have to stay for. I want to ask Dr. Smith to explain his statistical sampling algorythm."
My Beloved looked stricken. I decided to end his misery.
"APRIL FOOL'S!!!! Go turn on the Canucks game, I'll bring us a couple of beers."
