Eight-year-olds can have a bit of a mean streak in them as well as I admit that our acquaintance Billy as well as I were charter members in that group.
- All of us modeled our pranks on the antics of The Three Stooges where they would bring high-brow society ladies as well as boys to the level of a pie fight.
All of us knew we would never pull that off, however we discovered a way to vex the elderly church ladies where our parents made us go every Monday. Billy as well as I would wait until a cool, crisp, as well as dry Autumn Monday would roll around. All of us wore our rubber-soled shoes to church as well as would shuffle along the carpet building up a static charge. Then we would sneak up as well as touch a single of the seasoned church ladies as well as howl with laughter as they would let out a shriek as the spark discharged. All of us carried on with our “Spark Gang” for a few years however a single morning we discovered that our trick did not labor anymore. All of us noticed that it seemed to coincide with the upgrade of a current Heating as well as Air Conditioning system that the church had recently installed. The system worked on usual humidity to the air as well as thus eliminated the static charge putting the “Spark Gang” out of business. All of us also noticed that the church was more comfortable than before as well as that seemed to be a calming influence on rambunctious kids. That Heating as well as Air Conditioning allowed us to sit quietly through the maintenance as well as perhaps we even l earned something from the sermons. And at least I could still shock our sibling at condo until Dad decided to install our central Heating as well as Air Conditioning system at home. Heating as well as Air Conditioning sure ruined a lot of fun for guys however today they have video games I could never have imagined.
