My first summer without summer
As I drove down First Avenue last night, the sign outside Family Video caught my eye. I don’t recall what it says verbatim, but it essentially offers free rentals for report card A’s.
This immediately took me back to my days at Holy Cross Grade School, where A’s not only equaled free rentals at Blockbuster, but also personal pan pizzas at Pizza Hut. While I’m sure the latter has gone by the wayside (despite the governement’s designation of pizza as a vegetable), I couldn’t help but get a bit nostalgic about that last-day-of-school feeling.
In grade school, it meant a day filled with outdoor activities — most memorably the water balloon toss — and three months of doing nothing but sleeping in, biking around Sandy Hill Lane and playing Little League games at Chet Waggoner Little League.
