Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

Nostalgia time! Did you read “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark” when you were younger? We sure did. And now we’re watching the movie and re-telling it in a very NSFW manner. Definitely no young ones around while we share this tale. We have some fun stories to share, Forrest Gump quotes, and then Dalia shares the plight of the brown, black, and poor who were shipped off to die in Vietnam. Bet you all didn’t know that Dalia could sneak in more history lessons for you in these horror flicks. She’s a sneaky one! So join in on this conversation, get a little nostalgic with these story retellings, and learn a little bit of our dark U.S. history.
