I took a mini-road trip to Langley today with my friends. That’s right, I’ve never been to Langley — not that I had a reason to go before. Anyway, on the drive we spotted a Chuck E. Cheese’s!! I never thought I’d be so happy to see one ever.
It brought back some very special memories. I spent three birthdays there — and if you must know, my party would ALWAYS win the cheering competition. Well, something happened to Chuck E. Cheese’s; it turned into a “Jolly Genie’s”. That place only lasted a year or two and then it disappeared. It was the only Chuck E. Cheese’s/Jolly Genie’s in the Vancouver area (Coquitlam).
When it left, it seemed my childhood left as well. But when I saw this Chuck E. Cheese’s, I felt like I was five years old again. We only drove by, but it feels good to know that my childhood still exists somewhere out there.
