ARC Giveaway and an April Fool's Day Joke on Me

DON'T FORGET TO ENTER THE GIVEAWAY FOR AN ARC OF THE HEALING SPELL!!! Go to this post from last Thursday! Easy-peasy.

On April 2nd, I got this email from my son who is away at college.

Dear Mom,
I finally convinced the hospital staff to lend me a computer. I was driving with Dave and we got in a car accident. Dave is ok, but I managed to break my femur in three places. I'll be in the hospital for a few days. If you could call BYU, and let them know, I'd appreciate it. Thanks,
Love,
Jared

I was like, What?!?

I tried to call him all morning on his cell phone and no answer. I was a bit worried because this actually happened to another one of my sons while away at college two years ago. He was in an accident and shattered his knee cap and still has screws and pins and a horrific scar across his knee. He was out for two months and lost that semester so I'm a bit disconcerted by his email, but suspicious, too . . .

Clues that this *might* be some sort of prank:

1. Why did he email when he has a cell phone? Or did his phone die?
2. Why didn't he tell me the name of the hospital?
3. I'd recently warned him about driving carefully with his friends when they go snow skiing and various places and he knew I was worried . . .  

THEN I LOOKED AT THE DATE OF THE EMAIL!
April 1 at 11:17 p.m. He slid in under the wire, that kid!



An April Fool's Joke Gone Very Bad.
