He would of definetly sent me up stairs to change and tell me to cover myself up in some hideous sweater and then give me a one hour lecture on how I should respect myself and how guys are only out for one thing and I always hated when he did that! Bridget: I mean, how could I have taken on the role of Anne Frank? I mean, I came up here to see what it was like to be her.

So to make a long story short, you're mother went to her great-grandmother and asked, "What's up with the little pan." And do you know what she said? It's so you."
