Hey -- guess what? May Day is almost here. It's this Friday, to be specific. When I was a little girl, I used to make baskets out of construction paper, fill them with popcorn and leftover Easter candy, leave them on my neighbor's front steps and play ding-dong ditch. I can't help but laugh at myself two decades later. The fact my mother let me do it in the first place still perplexes me, except I now understand that most of my neighbors weren't home to be disturbed by the doorbell.
