I miss those nights.
Saturday, June 15, 2013
Driving home tonight with the windows down and the radio on I got a little nostalgic for the summer nights when I was in college. I always came home for the summer and worked summer jobs. But on the weekend nights friends and I would drive to the Denver suburbs (usually in my eight year old burgundy Honda Accord hatchback) to a dollar movie theater.The ceilings of the hallways had strings of flashing blue lights. After the movies we’d drive down the road to Taco Bell for 59¢ tacos. We'd sit in the car in the parking lot with the windows down, radio on and eat our tacos and talk. The cost of the evening was usually under five dollars (that’s including gas). We were young and innocent and the air was sweet with the fleeting moments of youthful freedom.
