I fell for an April Fools joke today and it was the first time I remember falling for one in over 20 years.
As a cool and hip middle-ager, I am on the gram like the kids, and every morning when I am in the bathroom, I do my daily check of instagram and all the other social media things other than twitter. I’m fond of watching those little videos that people put up, and I follow about 30 animals that have their own accounts (shout out to Juniper & Fig), so it’s usually a nice way to start the day.
As a West Virginian, it is mandatory that you follow Jennifer Garner, who I would love even if she were from some hellhole like Ohio (you will always be Sydney to me, Jennifer). Among many other reasons, this is also why Ben Affleck is DEAD TO ME.
At any rate, this morning she had a cute little video in which she announced she had written a book, and it was called “Bless Your Heart.” I immediately thought “Oh, I have to get that for BFF Tammy, because she loves Jennifer.” Tammy is always sending me links to her Jennifer cooking and doing other things, so when I exited the throne room and went to the home office and proceeded to go to amazon.
And I could not find it anywhere. I looked, and looked, google searched, nothing. And then I saw someone bitching about April Fools jokes on twitter, and realized I had been had. Apparently I was not the only one.
TL:DR- At 48 I am still a sucker for a pretty face.
