Eight O'clock Party

Once upon a time, when I was still in Elementary, my siblings and I have had great times. I can honestly say I don’t know why this tradition got started, but it is one not to forget. Whenever it got close to eight o’clock at night, all four of us would rush to the living room. As soon as the clock structed eight we would be crazy and yell, “Crazy eights! Crazy eights! Crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy eights!” in a musical saying. It is an old memory now, for we surely don’t do such things nowadays. I think one day when my brother gets married and has kids, I will tell them about our fun times. This is one of the many times I actually remember vividly. A special saying like this probably will not be forgotten by my siblings or me.
