That's so

The snake on Spring Garden Road years ago. As a kid, seeing Bud the Spud, petting the scales. Going to the art museum and feeling like it was in another world. AND THE COMMON’S JUNGLE GYM. The tires and rope wall. Or the bars you'd hold onto for dear life to the other side so you didn't fall in the lava. (I always fell in the lava.) Dickie Dees, yo! Blockbuster family night. Rogers was their competitor; movies and a phone display. I've been complete for a while, just never realized it. Halifax, I love you. You are my home, my memories. Couldn't pay me all the money in the world to replace that. —90's
