# I don't want to let my friends down

This is an entry into the Fortnightly Topic Challenge #36

I was supposed to do something, but I can't remember what it was. I know it was supposed to be fun or funny. In a typical effort to hide my plans from my friends, I made a word search that was scrambled using a Keyword Cipher. It seems; however, that I've forgotten what the Keyword was. I know it has something to with roll, but that isn't it. Rock and roll? Sick role? Kick and roll? Duck roll? Maybe you can help me remember. I do remember the keyword is a four letter word.

What activity was I planning to do with my friends?

You planned to

That's why your plans are secret, as rickrolling requires deception.

Using the key:

UP(ambiguous?, could go up+right instead of straight up)

Also fits the title:

"Never gonna give you up. Never gonna let you down"

• That's right so far, but what does it all mean? Also, you may want to list out the words, as well them showing them in the word search. – Joe-You-Know Jun 20 '18 at 16:54
• I'm guessing the "activity" involves either the Half-Life 3 announcement or Oregon Politics – David Starkey Jun 20 '18 at 19:23
• @DavidStarkey Now that's an idea I would run with. – Joe-You-Know Jun 20 '18 at 20:35
• Based on all the above, maybe the thing you were supposed to do was simply to rot13(evpx-ebyy fbzrobql)? – Mohirl Jun 21 '18 at 9:11
• @Mohirl Thanks, I went ahead and added that. I didn't come out and say it, as I didn't think the keyword would literally be the activity. Oh, and thanks for not deserting me. – hagfy Jun 21 '18 at 11:25
