Go Back In Time

I want to go back to the time when...

Decisions were made by going

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."

Catching the fireflies could
happily occupy an entire evening.

It wasn't odd to have two
or three "best" friends.

Being old referred to anyone over 20.

The net on a tennis court was the perfect height
to play volleyball and rules didn't matter.

The worst thing you could catch
from the opposite sex was cooties.

It was magic when dad
would "remove" his thumb.

It was unbelievable that dodgeball
wasn't an Olympic event.

Having a weapon in school meant
being caught with a slingshot.

Nobody was prettier than Mom.

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 amusement park.

Getting a foot of snow
was a dream come true.

Abilities were discovered because
of a "double-dog-dare."

Saturday morning cartoons weren't
30-minute ads for action figures.

No shopping trip was complete,
unless a new toy was brought home.

made perfect sense.

Spinning around, getting dizzy and
falling down was cause for giggles.

The worst embarrassment was being
picked last for a team.

War was a card game.

Water balloons were
the ultimate weapons.

Baseball cards in the spokes transformed
any bike into a motorcycle.

Taking drugs meant
orange-flavored chewable aspirin.

Ice cream was considered
a basic food group.

Older siblings were the worst tormentors,
but also the fiercest protectors.

If you can remember most or all of these,
then you have LIVED!

Pass this on to anyone who may need a break
from his or her "grown up" life.
