You brag about the fact you can get breakfast, lunch & dinner lap dances at 3 different establishments within 3 square miles of one another.

I grew up in the Sawgoose.

Most of them items did apply to me, with some variation.

Blessed Sacrement never had dances when i was a welp, but the KoC did....

my bands first gig was supposed to be at the Palace but our guitar player backed out at the last minute....now it's Homo Despot.

We had one jewish kid per grade and two black kids and or asian depending on the year. Diversity meant Irish OR Italian. Minority was Protestant but by only a few perentage points.

If you Dad didn't work at GE your mother DID.

The SQUARE ONE mall was an old fashioned 1950s style outside mall when i worked there at FANNY FARMERS.....and the secret government missile silos are probably still underneath.

I never really understood what this "farm" place is.

standard issue Saugus dress code: Levis, Converse Sneakers, thermal long sleeve undershirts with otehr shirt over it. Leather jackets inthe fall/winter, Jean Jackets in the Spring/summer....work boots.....

Sports was fucking fun.

The "BLUFF" was the top of this large hill that was too steep to build on top of, above a swamp and you could see the ocean to the east, mountains to the west and Boston to the south....liek a private playground....NOW houses filled that swamp and they built houses on the EDGE of the bluff by building concrete sustaining walls.......they wrecked a perfect place.....and now building on Blue Berry Hill.....

Friday night was the movies behind New England Shopping Center (now Sq. 1) Then pizza at Papa Gino's where Hollywood Video is,or late night at The Pancake House or IHOP.
