The holy grail of candy as already mentioned by Spencer in his Retro Machine Halloween Article.
Grabbing your favorite pack of cards you avoid the gum as your jaw is still sore and it is basically flavored cardboard you tear open the packages to see your new acquisitions. For me it would have been
Garbage Pail Kids
Some of my favorites: Slurpees
Then needing desperately to have something to wash down all that candy you head for a Slurpee.
A quick check to the bottom to snag your slurpee coin then proceed to make a slurpee volcano by building the mound, digging the hole, then inserting your straw somewhere else and blowing. Melted slurpee comes bubbling to the surface. Satisfied now with a brainfreeze and a stomach ache you get down to serious business.Comics and Magazines
While perusing the spinning comic rack you grab your favorites, my big three were Uncanny X-Men, Amazing Spiderman and the Incredible Hulk.
Over to the magazines to grab the latest issue of Mad Magazine because you just can't get enough Spy vs Spy. Arcade Games
In the corner there were usually one or two games. With that hold out quarter specifically guarded for this purpose you would play your favorite. I played Gauntlet. "Elf Needs Food, Badly," Valkyrie is About to Die".
Then you would attempt to play Dragon's Lair but loose miserably, but more than likely you were out of money by this time and would end up just watching the older kids play it while slurping your slurpee dregs.
"Dragon's Lair: The fantasy adventure where you become a valiant knight, on a quest to rescue the fair princess from the clutches of an evil dragon. You control the actions of a daring adventurer, finding his way through the castle of a dark wizard, who has enchanted it with treacherous monsters and obstacles. In the mysterious caverns below the castle, your odyssey continues against the awesome forces that oppose your efforts to reach the Dragon's Lair. Lead on, adventurer. Your quest awaits!"
Finally the clerk would eject you from the store and you would look at your friends and say,
"whatcha wanna do now?" and they would say, "I gotta go home my mom's probably making dinner".
