I liked Elementary School

I liked elementary school. No one made fun of me for having to take remedial reading or speech class. I don't know what the problem was, but they thought I had speech issues.
Maybe I liked elementary school because of the near-by candy store. All those jars and wrappers and colors.
Mary janes, tootsie roles, frenchies, and red licorice wheels, beaded neckless's, Sugar Daddies. candy buttons, cigar bubble gum. etc. Squirrel nuts were my favorites.
Or maybe I liked elementary school because bullies wore brogans. They were easy to detect. One sight of those shoes, you'd run in a different direction.

Everything changed in Jr. high school. :(

What was your favorite candy?
