You know, we never stop and think, and realize how much some of us miss these days...
Before the Internet or Text messaging...
Before the shots and joints
Before Sidekicks & Ipods
Before Playstation2 or X-BOX
Before the 5 hours of homework you put off every night...
When gas was $0.95 a gallon & Caller ID was a new thing...
When we recorded stuff on VCRs & paid $3.50 for a movie...
When we called the radio station to request songs to hear off our WALKMANS!!!
I'm talkin' bout hide and go seek at dusk!
Red light, Green light!
Heads up 7 up!
Playing kickball & dodgeball until your porch light came on.
Mother May I?
Running through the sprinkler

***Not finished yet...
Kool-Aid was the drink of the summer
Giving your friends a ride on your handlebars or spokes
Wearing your new shoes on the first day of school
Class Field Trips
When Christmas time was the most EXCITING time of the year!
When nearly everyone's mom was at home when the kids got there.
When getting high was swinging on the swingset
When $5 seemed like a million, and another dollar a Miracle.
When you begged to go to McDonalds, for dinner...EVERYDAY.
When Toys r Us overuled the "mall"
***Go back to the time when...
nobody had cable & people watched THE BOX on channel 25 & called & paid to watch music videos!!!!
Decisions were made by going "eeny-meeny-miney-moe"
Mistakes were corrected by simply exclaiming, "do over!"
"Race issue" meant arguing about who ran the fastest.
Money issues were handled by whoever was the banker in "monopoly"
It wasn't odd to have two or three "best" friends.
Being old, referred to anyone over 20.
The chance to couple skate at CN Scate Palace was like winning the lottery....
The worst thing you could catch from the opposite sex was cooties.
Nobody was prettier than Mom
Nobody was cooler than Dad
Scrapes and bruises were kissed and made better
It was a big deal to finally be tall enough to ride the "big people" rides at the fair...
Spinning around, getting dizzy and falling down was cause for giggles.
When staying up late was 10:00.
When slumber parties were the most awesome thing in the world.
When you didn't care that you weren't as skinny as the girls in Teen Magazine.
When Spice Girls, N'Sync and the Backstreet Boys were your top 3 favorite bands.
When a knife was something your mom used to cut up your hot dog for you.
When you could get lollipops from bank clerks.
Getting a pony for your birthday was what you wished for when you blew on the candles.
When playing make-believe was more fun than watching tv.
When Disney Movies were the top choice for movie night.
When saying a bad word to your parents was a big "no."
When you could still ride in the shopping cart at the grocery store.
If you can remember most or all of these, then you have LIVED!!!
