[October, 1989] Unsent Letters Part 2: The Egg Scandal

(insert bad egg pun here)

Dear Chen-chi,

Remember the Halloween parade we had? On the way back upstairs you dropped the egg on the stairs by accident and a teacher came in to tell us about it and if we knew anything to write on a piece of paper an annonamous note. Well I put your name down and even though I wasn’t the only one I am still very sorry.

I mean you should not have been carrying that egg even though it was for protection and I feel that it was sort of my responsibility to tell what I know and I’m sorry.

Dear 11-year-old Damiella,

Nobody likes a snitch. Chen-chi wasn’t like those hooligans who used Halloween as an excuse to pelt people with eggs and vandalize houses with shaving cream and toilet paper. If she was packing that egg as ammunition against a possible attack from these boys, that’s her business. If anything, you should be more sympathetic after last Halloween when Mom was accosted by young thugs  who threatened to pelt her with Nair-filled eggs.

Chen-chi didn’t hurt anyone; she just made a mess on the stairs. You should have known better than to rat her out.

    I totally remember the threat of Nair-filled eggs. If you walked around my neighborhood on Nov. 1, you could practically make a caesar salad from all the ingredients you’d find on the sidewalks (well, a poisonous caesar salad if they were Nair eggs I guess!).

    I had never heard of Nair filled eggs till I read this. Now I’m afraid to leave the house. 😀

    Yeah, the threat of Nair-filled eggs always scared the crap out of me when I was a kid, especially after my mom got hassled by those hoodlums. I just imagined helpless women being struck by them and getting instant bald spots.

    I don’t remember the Nair EGGS, but I do remember the Nair scare! I was a bridesmaid for Halloween (just wore an old dress of my mother’s…tailored, of course) the year it was a really big deal and I added a purple wig to the outfit to protect my real hair!

    D, these posts are awesome. I might do random old diary entries on my blog every once an awhile if you don’t mind! Then again, I might be too embarrassed…haha
