McKeller: “My freshman year my friends decided to play a prank on me with candy grams. They sent me an anonymous candy gram with a very long note confessing their love for me. It said to meet them in the cafeteria after school and so my friends shoved me there and I saw a senior boy waiting with his leg propped on a table with a huge grin. My friends were laughing so hard they fell to the ground and I RAN to the bathroom all the way on the other side of school.”
