    Life Before the '80s

    When we first really met.

    I was 16, I think he was 19. I remember the girl that held his hand, and how they loved each other like crazy. She was beautiful and tough and I recall wanting to know just how she felt, being with a guy like him. Gorgeous, tough, smart, and just plain crazy. I remember how his...

    People who boasted of high IQs

    and intelligence could actually spell and use grammar properly. I'm amazed these days that some believe that their alleged IQ should not also include ensuring their sentences are structured and clearly convey their intentions of their written piece, rather than what looks like...

    The 45 Rpm Record

    When I was about 3, I was addicted to the pacifier.  This was back in the 50's when pacifers were enlongated, made of rubber, and had a ridge around the end for holding the rest of the pacifier together.  One day, the plastic part of the pacifier broke and I was left...

    Insignificant

    I remember the day I began to grow up. I was five years old, in kindergarten. We were in a "recess" period or play period or something - it's kindergarten, isn't most of the day for play? But there were these little fake Lincoln Logs - hollow plastic instead of wood...

    Played Outside

    We stayed outside from dusk to dawn never caring to come home or even eat. Someone's mom would toss us some snacks and we'd just keep going. Riding our bikes all over and playing in the street and getting dirty beyond recognition. I loved to play hide n seek and tag and cops n...

    I remember when caps on bottled soft drinks

    Wonder Twins Activate

    You have to remember this cartoon. It was the best! My brother and I played it all the time and loved coming up with different things. One would be water and the other a tiger or whatever. Of course then we'd battle each other but it was still a creative way to play.

    You could open a box of cereal without

    Repost from May 20: I first learned about sex.

    I remember back to when I was a bit younger

    and was constantly trying to prove my existence to people I thought mattered. I never really fit in but these people made it seem like the world revolved around them and everyone was desperate for approval. It seems so silly now, to really care, although I guess that's what...

    I remember when I was never told I had an

    She met me in Rome. I had flown ahead,
