I lived in Queens until around my twelfth birthday, and I’ve always missed it. I’ve always been such a square. Recently I went to the library to hear a speech by Donna Gaines, a Ramones scholar.
Throughout the speech, I kept daydreaming about June 8, 1980, when my cousin, his girlfriend, some friends, and I went to a Ramones concert at Great Adventure.
Donna’s speech was good, but it wasn’t as interesting as being twenty years old, seeing the real Ramones. They were my fellow squares from Queens.
