Where did you and your friends spend time and what did you do there?

I didn’t spend a great deal of time around others during my teen years, but when I did go out, I spent some of my time visiting neighborhood peers. We would sometimes spend time playing, or waiting to play chess. There was usually only one chess board available, so we had specific rules for participation; the person who lost would have to get up from the board, and the person who won could sit and play as long as they were winning. Because there was usually only one chess game going on at any given time, some of my time was spent sitting around talking about random things with whoever was present.

Every so often, someone would host a “social” (an impromptu house party without food or drink…only loud music). It was usually held in someone’s den (playroom), during the day, with the curtains drawn, and black lights for lighting. We danced, and socialized for a couple of hours, and then the social would end as abruptly as it had started.
