Helena’s Practical Joke

We went to see A Wrinkle in Time at the Children’s Theatre tonight and that means that we stopped at A Slice of New York for a pizza beforehand. Since I had to return a call to Dori, I told Helena to call Dori and tell her that were were in New York for a joke while we were in the restaurant.

She only got the voice mail, so she left a message saying that we were in New York.

I had to turn the phone off because we were going to the theatre, but Dori couldn’t get back to us, and thought that we may be in New York. So Dori called Libby to find out what was going on. Then Libby got confused.

After we were home, I called Dori back and explained that it was a joke, but then Libby called. I told Helena to pretend that we were in New York and Helena had her pretty convinced.

Helena was quite proud of herself all evening after that since she had fooled Libby on the phone (she told her that we were at Dori’s and that Dori was in the bathroom, so Libby couldn’t talk to her). With all the excitement Helena had about getting her ears pierced tomorrow, she’s had a pretty exciting day.
