I remember getting together with my sisters and a couple of our girlfriends from the neighborhood and going down into our basement to play. We’d set up the canned goods that my parents kept down there to play store, stocking, arranging, buying and selling. It was like playing house and setting up our little fantasy world. Nobody came downstairs and it was cooler down there on those hot days in Virginia (right outside of DC).
