Response to renate (Reply #2)

6. Hey renate - thank you.

I still remember looking up at that sealed window. Everybody outside was cheering and squealing with excitement as more and more of us were crowding into that VW. How many could we get? Could we set a record or something? COOL! Meanwhile I was stuck at the bottom, next to that rear window - reaching up to it, even clawing at it, momentarily thinking I could open it. I even looked for a window handle to crank open before realizing this car's rear windows were sealed shut.

It was such a huge effort just to stay calm and not start physically freaking out. Besides - there was no room inside there to do that. I forget how many kids got packed in there. It was a fair amount, for sure. The inside of that little car was STUFFED to the max. It's still unsettling to think about, all these years later.
