Well I did squeeze myself into the middle of that scarf one time, remember? The hollow one?

Sarah said...

OMG YES. ROFL! Jess can fit into a scarf lengthwise. I've seen it.

Uh...that "beak" comment didn't have any, uh, secret meanings or anything. I just realized it might be taken amiss. It was just a silly comment with no actual content.
