I'd have to agree with the claim that our high school memories are some of
our most powerful experiences. I was almost 13 when I moved to the Bountiful
area. In a few years I made friends with 2 good kids who were like brothers to
me. We did EVERYTHING together all through high school right up through all of
us going on missions for the LDS church. With them, I felt accepted and safe.
Video games at the Four Corners arcade (Friday nights $5 got you &7.50 in
tokens) where we played for at least 2 hours (you get good at the games, ya
know!), trips to Pace's Dairy for ice cream, movies and our favorite
activity...going to Alpha Beta for a box of cherry Pop-Tarts and a quart of
chocolate milk before driving up into the foothills of Bountiful to just sit
looking out over the Salt Lake valley while consuming our food and talking.Those were many of the best experiences of my life.I
haven't seen my 2 amigos face to face in quite a few years. We exchange
e-mails and Christmas letters.I love those 2 guys and I always will.
