Calle and a friend(known then for being rather nerdy D&D types) invited two high school hotties over for cocktails at his parent's house when he was but a gangly teeny bopper. The two beguiling girls accepted but left Carl's hopeful happy hour as soon as they had got their teeny belly's full of free booze. Expectant Calle and friend were left sullen in their precosiously snazzy James Bondish attire to figure out what to do with the remainders of that Friday evening. Or was it a Saturday? I can't quite remember and my files are no longer within reach. Nonetheless, he seems like a guy that's matured into an amiable enough fella' over time.
