Growing up in my neighbourhood in “the Hammer”, there came a time, usually around the age of 10 or 11, when you decided you didn’t want to be looked upon as just a ‘kid’ anymore.
And the only way to gain the ‘street cred’ that required was the terrifying rite of passage called, ‘Nicky-Nicky 9 Door’.
Now, ‘Nicky-Nicky 9 Door’ (also referred to as – ‘Ding-Dong-Ditch’) had four fixed rules:
RULE #1: It had to ‘go down’ on a Saturday night – and only after dark.
(So, if your parents insisted you had to be home “when the streetlights came on” – you pretty much disqualified yourself!)
RULE #2: You couldn’t rock a shortcut and knock on the screen door – it had to be the ‘real’ door! (Having to open the screen door burned precious seconds … thus, increasing the odds of getting pinched.)
RULE #3: You had to knock super hard – 3 distinct times.
(Ringing the doorbell, while knocking would elevate you to legendary status!)
RULE #4: You couldn’t pick the house yourself – that was decided for you!
(It was usually a house with a nearly rabid dog … or heaven forbid, the house everyone insisted was haunted.)
I personally accomplished the task 3 days before my 11th birthday.
PS: I’d like to take this opportunity to apologize to Mrs. Walchuk!
