Dude called yesterday to tell us about being ready at 5:30 AM, packing a lunch and then the man called and said due to impending rain - no work. Said he was going to school on those days he didn't work. SO...okay - exhale. Later an urgent call came. The kind that you hope to God you never hear from your kid and it went something like this - Phone rings - and it's like static, can only hear every other word, but I can hear Dude and he's yelling, and so are the 2 guys in the car with him, the reception seems to go in and out, but I can hear him yelling Mom....in a panic. Mom? Mooooooooom? MOM!!!!!! MOM?????? CAN YOU HEAR ME? -then voices in the background yelling "GO GO GO MAN GO-----turn off your lights, TURN OFF YOUR LIGHT, GOD don't hit the breaks they'll see us." then Dude "OMG MOM - we picked up this guy XX knows and apparently he has a pound of marijuana on him and the cops have been looking for him and now they think WE're in on this - more voices in the background yelling in a rush....GO GO - OMG NO MAN....HE SEES US.....GO DOWN THIS ROAD..NOW NOW...... Then I hear "Mom....MOM can you hear me?" I somehow manage a calm - "yes - what is going on?" "I cant talk Mom - the cops are looking for us, I think we ditched them and XX is driving by the house I'll be there in less than 1 minute. Will you PLEASE tell the cops I've been there all night......Oh Mom I can't be arrested again for something I didn't do." DF said the look on my face was priceless......I really was in shock. I don't know what made me think this was a joke, but I said "Okay - I'll be here." half expecting him to run across the field and into the house. Then there was silence. I said nothing.....I heard nothing......and finally DUde on the phone says "Mom......? MOM? MOM!!!!!!!!!! MOOOOOOOOOOOOM?" and I said in a voice that was out of breath - "Son - I don't know what is going on......but.......(gasping for air) I think......I need your Dad to get me to the emergency room NOW.....I don't know but I think I'm..........having...........a heart attack......" then silence........then Dude yelling MOM more intensely than before and after a longer silence I hear "Mom it was only a joke April Fools......OMG my MOM guys - turn around my Mom is having a heart attack. MOM? MOM!"? and I said "Yes......and he said "IT WAS A JOKE MOM." and you can hear the guys in the car say "Oh Dude man....sorry man...." Then I said......very softly..... I know - APRIL FOOLS... OMG I don't know who wanted to cry more - him or the guys in the car. apparently the peach does not fall very far from the fuzzy tree.
