The 45 Rpm RecordWhen 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 with only the rubber. I was upset cause I couldn't suck on it without the whole thing going down my throat.
My Mother was very creative not to mention my whining was pretty annoying. She had to act fast. AhHa Mother decided an old 45 record, the ones with a small hole in the midde, would work perfectly. She took the nipple of the pacifier and fit the ridge into the hole of th 45. Perfect - except the thing covered my whole face. I started crying again because I couldn't see. How ridiculous I must have looked with this 45 record covering my face while I sucked the pacifier.
After breaking the top half of the record off, I had a makeshift pacifier until the stores opened. All's well that ends well.
I barely remember this but Mother filled in the holes. lol
