That was the best line from a scary story my elementary school teachers used to read out loud. You can hear it for yourself here!
If you weren’t fortunate enough to have this book as part of your childhood, and don’t care to experience it now, here’s the gist of it: A girl named Jenny always wears a ribbon around her neck, and she won’t tell her friend (later her husband) the reason why. At the end of her life, Jenny tells him he can untie it. And…
Yep. It was holding her head on.
If you happen to have a detached head, this project won’t do you much good. But if you have a firmly connected cranium—and I hope you do—you can rest easy, because it won’t strangle you either! And it will do you plenty of good as a stylish accessory that keeps your nice, normal neck warm.
It’s a hearty meal, a birthday surprise, and a prank, all in one. It doesn’t get much better when you’re celebrating with a gullible, picky friend!
Last week, I was brainstorming what we could make for a ketchup and potato fanatic’s special day. Inspiration came when I remembered a favorite idea from my past. It’s something my younger self had always wanted to try: Meatloaf Cupcakes!
