So I'll say the following:
- Not everything I write here about events from the past is necessarily true (even when I don't provide a "may be exaggerated" warning).
- If I label something as "3/4 true" or "25% lie" it's quite possible that the true ratios/percentages are different.
- Overall, my memories of that time are good ones.
- The bullhorn was cool.
Then, the whole group - seven of us in all - decided to go the haunted house down the street. What happened next is immortalized in this short story, one I wrote under winter duress in Minneapolis at the turn of the century.
