A little story about Long Grove by David Arroyo
Growing up as a kid my mom worked at the Long Grove Confectionery Company. Fortunately for us she would bring home samples of her delicious creations.
They looked so good you felt bad just dropping them in your mouth. You almost wanted to display them in your curio cabinet, but only for a brief moment, of course
That was so long ago and I was so young. In fact we lived in the city of Chicago, no where near this quite town. My mom who never learned to drive would have to car pool for an hour there and back everyday just to get there .
I had no idea Long Grove was even an actual town. To my knowledge all the mentions of Long Grove were followed by “Confectionery Company”. So I thought “a business it must be”, boy was I wrong.
