Feliz Cumpleanos


Sunday the 24th of February is Carly Johnston-Young's birthday. In honor of this event, I've decided to recount one of my favorite memories of Carly:


Once upon a time at Mrs. Auernig's house in 1999, some friends and I dared Carly to eat an entire cube of butter for $50 (we were all going to chip in). Now, Carly has never been scared of calories or fat content, not even a little bit, so of course she took the dare. Now picture this-about a dozen 14-year-old girls circled up around Carly-chanting and cheering her on as she is trying to force this thing down her throat. She almost got it too (except she couldn't because it was too slippery). Watching her trying to swallow that thing was probably one of the funniest things I've ever seen. I think we even paid her $25 for her efforts.


Anyway, Carly is everything Joyce and I wish we could be. (In the voice): Carly. Happy Birthday.

Carly did you mean before you, me, Jodie, Julianne, and probably some other people? We just ruined the squad's rep, didn't we?

I am pretty sure that Aurnig started crying and then bore her testimony.
