Red Kool-Aid LMAO! Out of all the positive answers they gave, I can't get over the red Kool-Aid. Who would have guessed that Angie B's favorite drink was "Red" Kool-Aid. Hold on, I can't stop laughing. But I have just have one more question....Is that Strawberry, Cherry or does Red include them all. LOL Too Cute!

Yeah I laughed really hard at the Red Kool-Aid with lemon vs. Court's protein shake. She didnt just say Kool-Aid either, she said with lemon. That is just too funny.

One more thing, I havent seen any of the movies that mean alot to Ang. I've seen Courtney's though. See, me and Mr. Vance are on the same page man. LOL! joke, joke.

Great post, girly!
