[RC] April Fool's Day - sandy . l . holder

Early this morning, I decided that I HAD to play an April Fool's day joke on somebody, so I figured one of my favorite riding buddies was probably the most likely candidate.  My April Fool's day joke to my good friend went something like this:
me:  "Heh, I'm going to do the Tevis this year!"
her:  "You're WHAT?!!!"
me:  "Yeah, even though the most I've ever done is a 50, I'm going for the big one."
her:  "You've GOT to be kidding.  I SAW you after the last 50~"  <gasp, I guess I do have share this part>
me:  "Yeap. . . found a friend with a horse that's ready to take me and I'm going to do it."
her:  "Ok, so you know we've already promised to crew for other people. . . are you SURE you can MAKE IT 100 miles?!!***"
me:  "Yup!"
her:  "Oh my G * D!  I can't believe YOU are going to do TEVIS!"

By this time, I about bust a gut and started laughing. . . and in between giggles said "April Fool's Day". . .
Her:  But Sandy, you know, we could really talk to a few people, and find you a horse, I'm sure with how well you ride and take care of your boy that someone will have a horse for you?!
me:  <gulp>, oh, well, you see, I don't know if I can do a 100. . .
her:  hehehehehehe, April Fool's on you. . . LOL   =+D

ok, hmm, at which point it really MADE ME THINK <yes, it hurts>, my goal's always been to do the Tevis, but on my own horse. . . I wonder if I can do it, and when it might be possible.  Maybe not this year 'cause I think there's already a waiting list, and I haven't even made it to a ride this year yet (except if you count being an in/out timer, and volunteering), and I'm way behind schedule with my own boy due to the move into the new place. . . well, GUESS I BETTER GET GOING ON THAT GOAL. . . and know that one of these years it will be doable.

Hope you're having a great April Fool's day - for REAL!
