We heading to the dump on a quiet road. A few minutes later said, Wanna drive? I I don’t have a license and my is only good in New York Plus I never drove a transmission. He said, Okay. But night I’ll teach you on my its easy.

While Jerry snooped the fumes irritated my eyes and got to me. I was hoping to fart. to clear air as threw a headless doll at me. He showed me a half-filled, classic six-ounce Coca Cola and said, Thirsty, want a A few seconds later he screamed, its the mother lode. You gotta this out! From the of his voice, I guessed he found a Nickel so I tip-toed through the to his side. He lifted some sheet metal and revealed the of a bacon package with a bugs on it. Before I could my eyes from the tiny I noticed that the light seemed to effect their I fought-off the urge to vomit and back to the truck.

When Jerry got back I What were they? He Maggots.

That image has burnt into my psyche for the 39 years. But while it was still in my mind, I was led astray again by

Jerry owned a black VW bug. He enticed me to go back to with him on our day off. He described a cornucopia of girls that he in our neighborhood. The twisted reality he was going to see HIS girlfriend and wanted for the drive.

I was homesick anyway and the best of the situation. I spent the with my folks and slept in my own I liked the arrangement so much I joined Jerry two other We were going to do it one last but Jerry’s car was in the shop. That he came over after wearing his neatly pressed shirt and said, Let’s get ice in town. I said, How we gonna get He said, Follow me.

At the nature hut pointed to the Thing and whispered, it is. I said, Why are you whispering? He said, I know the gimmick. As we approached, of us noticed the big difference. the Thing’s roof was up. Jerry tried the but it was locked. When he muttered I sighed in relief, Its no big deal, about it. Jerry said, NO! I were goin’ for ice cream and goin’.
