1st Grade Halloween

P.S.84.  This is back when those Ben Cooper pre-packaged Costume Sets took over the United States.
I'm shocked they didn't figure out a way to just become the fashion industry -- kids (and parents) were
crazy about those things.  My mom wouldn't let me wear one on Halloween because she liked to flex
a little sewing skill.

Louie Bruno, by best friend at the time, as Dracula.  A few months later he called me a bum and
transferred to Catholic school.  I sweat his Dracula costume though.  He had that cape.

Mrs. Weinstock.

Shout-out to the Velveeta boxes Mrs. Weinstock kept her notes in.  The entire first grade curriculum was
basically stored in those Velveeta lids.  It's nice to know that in some way Velveeta took part in my
learning to read.
