Two interesting things I learned for the first time tonight that might not be interesting to anyone but me:
- The haunted house at the end of the street on Duff Drive wasn't haunted at all. Rosa Gomez confessed last night that she made the whole thing up to scare Bonnie and Debbie, inadvertently creating a neighborhood legend.
- My parents and the parents of the Elton kids conspired to let the Elton kids catch chickenpox from us. All these years, the four Elton kids have been holding this secret chickenpox grudge against the four Ransonette kids and I never knew. I thought we were just playing and the whole time it was a little contagious childhood disease funfest created by the parents. It's a good thing the Eltons are such sweet people. I'd hate to be worried that they're secretly concocting a sinister revenge scheme to infect us with a nasty toe fungus or a really bad case of pink eye.
