Packing Lists

Champion sweatshirts cut and the neck with shorts that went swish when you walked. Slouch socks, dirty Keds, skin so soft. Sunburns, bug juice, endless peanut butter sandwiches on Wednesdays. Barbeques, crackling bonfires, screaming girl-fights. Plastic showers, moths, shower caddies, moldy towels, pre-dinner wardrobe changes that included spritzes of Anais Anais and too much hair gel. First kisses and fumbling exploration-- wet and hot on a volleyball court or a golf course or behind a bunk. Lights Out! Raids, jacks, a sweep of baby powder will prevent splinters. Breakups, tears, Christopher Cross or Air Supply.
