Today started like any other day...
Okay, so it was nothing like any other day. I woke up with the biggest, most debilitating migraine EVER and left Hubby to take care of getting the kiddies to school, while I went back to bed to nurse my migraine.
I awoke only once for a glass of water and ended up answering an INEGI census on the security/insecurity of Mexico.
Still feeling the effects of the migraine, I returned to my room, in hopes that after another short nap I would be cured of this horrible malady.
I had barely fallen asleep when the phone rang. Figuring that it was Hubby calling to ask if I needed anything while he was picking the kiddies up from school, I got up to answer the phone. Instead of my Hubby's deep, sexy voice, I was greeted by a woman who said, "Stay on the line for an important message from the President of Mexico." Then a recording of Felipe Calderon's voice said, "Four years ago, the country..."
I didn't bother listening to the rest of the message, I just hung up the phone. As soon as I did, Hubby and the kiddies walked in the door and Hubby asked, "Who was that on the phone?"
Me: Felipe Calderon.
Hubby: Ha ha! No, really who was it?
Me: Felipe Calderon.
Nick: Really? What did he want?
Me: I don't know. I hung up on him.
Nick: WHAT??? Why would you do something like that? What if he get's mad at us?
Me: Sweetie, I'm sure the President has more important things to worry about than me hanging up on a recorded message.
(Enter Hope who just arrived from school and notices the worried look on Nick's face.)
Hope: What's wrong?
Nick: Felipe Calderon called and Mom hung up on him.
Hope: (Laughing uncontrollably) Mom, stop kidding around and tell Nicky the truth. Felipe Calderon did not call you.
I explained for the third or fourth time exactly what had happened. Annoyed, Hope turned to Nick and said, "It's just a recorded message. Everyone hangs up on those." Hope's simple explanation was enough for Nick and we all continued on with our day as usual. But it wasn't the last of this conversation.
Nick and a couple of his classmates were chosen to work on the class bulletin board at school. They all met at our house this afternoon to do some research online. For some strange reason, my internet connection kept going out. I couldn't figure out why, but Nick was sure he knew exactly what the problem was. "See mom! I told you the President was going to get mad. And now he's decided to hit you where it hurts most...he's taken away your internet!"
Ridiculous, right? Yeah, I thought so too. But as I was writing this post, my internet connection went out four times! Coincidence? I think not!
