Necco Wafers Valentine Memory

in Valentine's Day Memories
I was in 2nd grade and my best friend and i skipped school so we could walk almost three miles uphill both ways (yes we went the way our mothers drove... one way was uphill there & the way back was also uphill) to buy our mom their favorite candy. Necco wafers and Chunky for Valentines Day. We did not have enough to buy both of our candies and our candy cigarettes but the clerk told us it was ok and to bring the money back tomorrow. So we gave our moms their presents, then asked them to pay the guy at the Tom Thumb the next day for us. They did.
