A similar episode happened to me in the 4th grade. A pretty girl stood up
at show and tell with a bottle of red liquid and ask us if we could smell
her new perfume. Well I was sitting right up front and I wasn't sure if I
smelled perfume or not, but she _was_ pretty so I raised my hand affirming
that I could indeed smell perfume. "No," she smirked. "It's only red food
coloring and water." To prove her point she turned up the bottle and drank
her 'perfume.' ......The bitch wasn't pretty anymore.

LOL. Very interesting choice of words. Maybe one doesn't read fully
certain posts because they 'flabbergast' one? :)

bottoms up,
