22-year-old Louisa Manning of Cambridgeshire, England went through an awkward phase when she was growing up . . . like all of us did. But she pulled through, and now she’s an attractive adult.
Then a few weeks ago, she bumped into a guy she’d gone to high school with, and he asked her out on a date. At first she was outraged, because the guy used to BULLY her. But then she accepted the date . . . so she could get REVENGE.
First Louisa stood him up . . . then she sent a note to the restaurant with a photo of how she USED to look, and had them give the note to him.
It said, quote, “Remember when I was fat and you made fun of my weight? No? I do. I spent the following three years eating less than an apple a day. So I’ve decided to skip dinner.
“Remember the monobrow you mocked? The hairy legs you were disgusted by? Remember how every day for three years, you and your friends called me Manbeast?
“No perhaps you don’t . . . or you wouldn’t have seen how I look eight years later and deemed me [eff]able enough to treat me like a human being.
“I thought I’d send you this as a reminder. Next time you think of me, picture that girl in this photo, because she’s the one who just stood you up.”
Louisa says the guy reached out to her on Facebook after he got the note and apologized.

So Huffington Post published a great article showcasing the most Instagrammed spots in each of the 50 states & Washington, D.C. Pretty cool, except the fact that they listed Kaufmann Stadium, home of The Royals, as the most Instagrammed spot for Kansas. Not a huge deal as I, for one, will totally take credit for being the Royals home state, however, The K is technically in Missouri. So now I’ve got to know, what is the ACTUAL most Instagrammed spot in Kansas? Kansas Speedway, The Phog, or The Bill maybe? What’s your guess?~ Carly
