I too, and many other kids, knew the feeling of excitement that Kevin was feeling. Even though at times it was scary being by myself and hearing weird noises, I would take advantage of the exciting thrill of being left home alone. From eating someone else’s candy, stealing my mother’s makeup, and watching a Tv show i wasn’t allowed to watch, being home alone was such a thrill when I was younger. There were no boundaries in my little mind, and I would feel so happily deceitful doing things I typically couldn’t in those days.
