That was hilarious. I remember my grandfather had a station wagon, and my brother and I would be in the back making faces drivers, no seat belts, and never a collision, even though my aunts would say that my granddad drove like Chevy Chase in Vacation
I grew up in the South Bronx in the 80's I lived and so did everyone around me, we played in abandoned buildings, and there was no one to kidnap us, because everyone was getting high. Watching kids play double dutch in the street at 10 at night on the weekend, and the pump (hydrant) open all summer long.
We would have block parties and the guys would hook up their music to the street lamp after breaking into it.
And we would be playing all night and chasing each other on the fire escapes..... wait! That was dangerous, but we had fun, and you can tell who grew up where as adults, because everyone has at least one giant gash on one of their knees/elbows/chin/ or forehead from falling down.
I have mine from playing in the pump, and getting chased, then fell on a huge piece of glass
Those we the days!!! Thanks for bringing those memories back
BTW, I wanted to add that I was a tom-boy through and through, played hand ball like a champ! and any other sport, so I wasn't treated to girly, but always had funedit on 30-12-2011 by NoRegretsEver because: to add
