Dumb Foam

It's been a while since I've made an embarrassing confession, so here we go. Every day I pass what used to be the 49th Street Galleria (then the Fun Dome, then some pet center) and is now an empty building. I am a little ashamed to admit that miss it. Sure, it was generally a place where stupid teens hung out doing stupid things, but there was a time when I fulfilled both those requirements (whereas now I can only meet the latter). I actually had some good times there. So next time you drive by the ghostly, mirror-windowed relic, I hope you'll spare a moment or two to contemplate the evanescence of youth. Or at least think about that one time you cheated at skee ball.

It's an empty building now?! That sucks. I remember dancing there as a little girl. Nothing like blue eye shadow on 5 year olds to make you remember a place.

Don't forget it was a reception center, buffet restaurant, some sort of school. I too miss it -- the site of my first date with Glen. Ahh.
