  5. Those were in the popular hangout in a nearby town when I was but a tad. Problem was, by the time the song you paid for got played, you were done eating and out the door.

  9. In high school, at Frisch's, we used to play a stupid game. We'd pick a number at random and say "under the sheets" after the title. I guess it doesn't beat watching trash on tik-tok but made the girls giggle.
