Rereading My Childhood – A Year With the BSC #19: Laughing All the Way to the ICU

A Year With the BSC is an informal series wherein I explore the 1990’s CD-ROM video game The Baby-sitters Club Friendship Kit. The game is more of a personal organizer; it features with a calendar, an address book, a stationary kit, a flyer maker, and a personality profile. I’m focusing on the more interesting aspect of the game: the personalized letters and the journal entries. The full list of entries can be found at

It’s a busy week for me, personally, with finals coming up soon and essays due, so I am happy to report it was a slow week for the BSC.


I need to know what the set-up is for the punchline, “You’re just my type – – RH Positive.” A cursory Google search told me that to be RH positive means that you have the Rhesus factor, which would affect the birth of a baby if the mother is RH negative while carrying a fetus that is RH positive. Possible birth complication is just a gold mine of great comedy material.

Also, didn’t Logan already express interest in performing? Why was it a surprise when he performed?

Lastly, oh good, a white girl performing something called “The Mummy Wrap.” I’m sure it wasn’t as white as it sounds. Just kidding. It was whiter than I anticipated. She used Miracle Whip on a cheese sandwich while wearing New Balance shoes and wondering when Beyonce “got so political. Why can’t she just make fun music for the girls and me to listen to during book club? Why does she always have to use her massive, influential platform to talk about issues that directly affect her community?”


I still think you guys should have just done a Haunted House like any good Halloweenies.


There’s like ten people in town, of course Cokie Mason heard about your comedy club.
