Remember when the bell rang (at school) & it was time to line up?!! I’d made it to the front a few times (little ol’ me). I didn’t, at all, like it at the very back. But anywhere in between was the place to BE! Everything would go on there! Talking, laughing, candy swaping, hair fixin’, plan makin’ for the rest of the day … when just about everything in our lives was so much fun. We went to school together, played together both inside & outside for years. We ate together, walked, rode bikes, skateboarded & caught many buses all over the place & back. We’d sit outside often times past midnight just talking after having played every game known to kids & then some! At times at night we’d have to either stay on the front & or were allowed to talk through the windows while inside! Then do it all again the next day, beginning early. We lived to be outside & according to every parent in our neighborhood we smelled like it!
