If you’ve been to high school, chances are you’ve got a yearbook lying around that’s full of enough cringe-worthy quotes and photos to mortify you until your dying day.

Unless you’re Tina Fey, who’s pretty proud of hers.

Asked what quote she selected to be remembered by in the 1988 Upper Darby, Pa., high school yearbook, the 30 Rock star, 41, shared this clever gem with PEOPLE in its new issue.

“I had a good one,” she says. “We had to fill in the blank: ‘Five years from now I will be…’ and mine was ‘very, very fat.’ I figured if I’m not, then it’s like, ‘You’re not!’ And if I am, I’m like, ‘I know – I called it!'”
