cecilia bedelia, the skeptical

November 16, 2012

I had called Charles on business.  We have a shared phone plan and I had received a text message from our provider warning that Charles was in danger of going over his allotted text messages.  I contacted my brother who said he received the same message.  He verified that he was indeed sending more text messages than usual and asked if I could look into increasing his allowed messages so he wouldn’t have an exorbitant amount of overage charges.  I had done what he requested and was calling to give him an update.

Me: They’ve changed your message plan and post-dated it so you won’t have extra charges this month.

Charles: Sweet!  Thanks!

Me: They also said you can change it back if you want to.  Do you think you will still need to keep this?  I didn’t think you texted very much.

Charles: I’ll probably change it again ’cause I don’t usually text, but that’s the best way for us to communicate here.

Me: Where’s here?

Charles: Dude Cilyuh, I’m on vacation.  I’m in Disney World!

{I rolled my eyes.  Leave it to my brother to pick the most outlandish, improbable place just to tease me.  Ha!  I’m not that gullible, little brother! I thought.}

Me: Yeah, right!  Seriously.  Where are you?

Charles: I’m at Disney World.

Me: I don’t believe you, Charles.

Charles: Well, I’m here with seven of my classmates, even if you don’t believe me.

Me: Considering some of the stuff you’ve pulled in the past, I’m skeptical.  Post a picture on Facebook.  Then this doubting Thomas might believe you.

Charles: Don’t have my laptop with me.  Check Scott’s Facebook if you want proof.

Charles went on to tell me some of the parks he visited, which gave a little more validity to his story.  But I still checked Deacon Scott’s Facebook when I got home.  They’re at Disney.  {I’m not really sorry for doubting you, Charles… I’m sure you understand why… I luuuuuv yooooou, Deacon Carlos!}

    He did tell me he was going to go to Disney in Nov. did not know the dates but knew he and some of his friends were going to go. So he is telling the truth.

Have your say...
