It was the time that the kids in school were all getting that Salk vaccine for polio. I'm not sure if I was in elementary or junior high school that I took the syringe from the doctor's office to use as a water gun. I ended up giving it or selling it I think to one of the more "less innocent tough guys" at school
Well, my parents must have been shocked when somehow the syringe was confiscated by the police and the tough guy revealed his source....little innocent me. !!! I assure you I could not be any less knowledgeable about what other use this syringe was being used for by this other guy.
The police came to our home quite menacingly I recall but finally realized the benign use I had taken it for. I don't think those water soaker water guns today would get any near that reaction from our local Officer Krupke."
