"Jessie's Girl" blares over the pool side radios. Ghostbusters is in theaters. Cut Jersey boys swing from vines into deep pools like Tarzan. The only give aways that we weren't in 1984? The hair on the girls ain't that big, "Born in the USA" has been out for thirty years and I'm no longer enjoying my last boyhood summer before junior high.
We ate the same chicken fingers my dad bought me all those years ago under the same beach themed umbrellas. Sydney rode his christening Tarzan Swing ride, soaring twenty feet in the air over a deep clear pool. Liji, just at the 48" magic number tagged along for everything else.
