    So I am feeling like a horrible human being

    I sent somebody I used to talk to an invite to Easter breakfast.

    I was going to say April Fool's but they think it's a real invite. I haven't spoken to him in a couple of months, so I thought it would be an obvious prank, I made it very lovey dovey and dramatic as if we'd been dating.

    I think I'm just going to stay silent and forget what I did..

    I never do things like this and now I remember why...I don't like to hurt people and it's a lesson learned.

    My friend once came up with an intricate april fools joke. She had been hanging out with this lesbian for a while, and lesbian innuendos were often made. She decided that on AF day, she was going to "come out" to all of our friends and tell them all she is gay. She decided not to go through with it because she was worried I might get caught up in the heat of the moment and the raging emotions and yell out "SO AM I!!" when many of them didn't quite know yet.

    Either go ahead and have the breakfast, or come clean and apologize profusely, don't be a coward and stay silent in the hope that it all goes away.

    NotInterested saidI was going to say April Fool's but they think it's a real invite.

    Maybe his acceptance is HIS April Fool's joke on YOU. icon_question.gif

    I know 2 wrongs aren't supposed to make a right, but maybe you can devise a plausible excuse why you're not going to have any Easter breakfast at all. But whatever, do it quickly, even if you decide to 'fess-up with the truth. Do NOT stay silent, which could hurt him more, cause this AIN'T funny. icon_mad.gif

    And BTW, how was the joke supposed to end, when was he gonna find out? He went there and you weren't? Like at a restaurant? Or your house door was locked? When where you gonna say April Fool's? Yesterday after you sent it, but he accepted too quickly?

    Another alternative is to have the breakfast, as a lesson to yourself not to play this kind of trick again. And if he does turn the tables and the joke's on you when he doesn't show, well, eat some crow along with your eggs.
