What are some of your favorite childhood memories growing up?
I remember as a kid, sometimes I’d save up my money, and go to the candy store a couple time a week. Sometimes it was different places. But there was a specific place, that I look back at now, and wish I had gone to a lot more, because it was a hidden gem so to speak.
It was a pharmacy store, but was a local one. Like a mom and pop one, not one of those big chain ones like Walgreens. There were bar stools, and a 1950’s type set up to the side, and I never thought that it was used. One time, I asked, and the guy said that he could whip me up a chocolate milk shake, and it is used, but not that often. I don’t know if it was partly because of the décor, but looking back now, I think that was one of the best milkshakes I’ve ever had in my life! Looking back now, I wish that there were more places like that still around, but now a days it’s more about quantity, instead of quality, I guess.
It was sure cool though! and it makes me smile sometimes, just thinking about it.
