Yesterday, as I drove to pick up my daughter from Penfield High School, I noticed something. More specifically I noticed the absence of something.
A building that over the years (as far as I can remember it) had been home to:
- A hair salon
- Raisman’s Ice Cream & Sandwiches
- Penfield Pizzeria
- Some kind of gourmet takeout
- Mark’s Pizzeria (for at least the last decade)
had gone to the great beyond. Where once was a structure that produced countless memories of my youth, as well as those of enumerable other Penfield-raised humans, was now a lumpy pile of dirt.
I wrote a story called “Good Boys Don’t Look In The Bag” (which ended up being Chapter 9 of my book) that took place in the now demolished building. So, as an homage to what used to be, I give you a PDF of that story, Chapter 9, for your reading pleasure.
