Got out of work at 6:45PM and had it in my head to make sure I drive extra slow on the way home because it was Halloween night and I figured that would be prime time for kids to be out and about.
I saw three kids in one pack on Haskell and not another group all the way to my sister Felicia’s house where we had dinner. While at Felicia’s only one group came by, a group of four one of which was Erin McKay’s daughter and then Buzzy Boo came home dressed up like a skeleton.
Uhmmmmmm, does anyone else remember what it was like when we were middle schoolers in the early eighties?
It was egg fights on the Golf Course and you’d get cans or shaving cream and put needles in the nozzle and then melt it down so the shaving cream would squirt out 7-8 feet or so. Toilet paper in the trees? We’d come home COVERED in shaving cream and eggs.
Those were good times.
The streets were packed with kids. I’m not sure how it is around the rest of the city but our neighborhood in East Gloucester was a dead zone. Get to CVS today because I’m sure there’s a buttload of candy left over that they’ll be selling for next to nothing.
