Close your eyes...And go back...

Before the Internet or the MAC

Before semi automatics and crack

Before SEGA or Super Nintendo...

Way back...


a.. I'm talkin' bout hide and go seek at dusk, Red light, Green light
c.. Playing kickball & dodgeball until your porch light came on
d.. Mother May I?
e.. Red Rover
f.. Hula Hoops
g.. Running through the sprinkler
h.. Happy Meals

Wait...

a.. Watchin' Saturday Morning cartoons
b.. Fat Albert, Road Runner, Smurfs, Picture Pages, G-Force & He-Man,
Woman & Super Man, Underoos
c.. Playing Dukes of Hazard
d.. Catchin' lightning bugs in a jar
e.. Christmas morning
f.. Your first day of school
g.. Bedtime Prayers and Goodnight Kisses
h.. Climbing trees
i.. Getting an Ice Cream off the Ice Cream Truck
j.. A million mosquito bites and sticky fingers
k.. Jumpin' down the steps
l.. Jumpin' on the bed
m.. Pillow fights
n.. Runnin' till you were out of breath
o.. Laughing so hard that your stomach hurt
p.. Being tired from playing
q.. Your first crush
r.. Rainy days at school meant playing "Heads up 7UP"
in the classroom Remember that?

I'm not finished yet..

a.. Kool-Aid was the drink of the summer
b.. Giving your friends a ride on your handlebars
c.. Wearing your new shoes on the first day of school
d.. Class Field Trips
e.. When nearly everyone's mom was at home when the kids got there.
f.. When a quarter seemed like a fair allowance, and another quarter a
Miracle. When any parent could discipline any kid, or feed him or use him to
carry Groceries, and nobody, not even the kid, thought a thing of it.
When your parents took you to McDonalds and you were so cool.
When being sent to the principal's office was nothing compared to the
fate that awaited a misbehaving student at home.

Basically, we were in fear for our lives but it wasn't because of drive
by shootings, drugs, gangs, etc. Our parents and grandparents were a
much bigger threat! And some of us are still afraid of em!

Didn't that feel good, just to go back and say, "Yeah, I remember that!"


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

a.. Decisions were made by going "eeny-meeny-miney-mo"
b.. Mistakes were corrected by simply exclaiming, "do over!"
c.. "Race issue" meant arguing about who ran the fastest.
d.. Money issues were handled by whoever was the banker in "monopoly"
e.. Catching fireflies could happily occupy an entire evening
f.. It wasn't odd to have two or three "best" friends.
g.. Being old, referred to anyone over 20. (CRAP! I'm officially
old!)
h.. The worst thing you could catch from the opposite sex was cooties.
i.. Nobody was prettier than Mom
j.. Scrapes and bruises were kissed and made better
k.. It was a big deal to finally be tall enough to ride the "big people"
rides at the amusement park.
l.. Getting a foot of snow was a dream come true.
m.. Abilities were discovered because of a "double-dog-dare"
n.. Spinning around, getting dizzy and falling down was cause for
giggles.
o.. The worst embarrassment was being picked last for a team.
p.. Water balloons were the ultimate, ultimate weapon.
q.. Older siblings were the worst tormentors, but also the fiercest
protector


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

Pass this on to anyone who may need a break from their "grown up"
life......I DOUBLE DOG DARE YA!!!!!!

Are you writing a country song? All good memories. I hope nothing bad happened in your life that caused all of these memories to rush back. Maybe you just saw "The Big Chill" again . . .

Seeing hid & go seek and other games pleyed outside on that list reminds me that I think all the time that, at least from my perspective, it is rare to see kids out playing in their front/back yards, riding their bikes, etc. as much as I did (at least I think I did) when I was young. There are a lot of kids in my neighborhood and I don't see them outside very much. I even lived on a busy street but I was outside all the time, I just couldn't go past the sidewalk in front of the house. Now parents are afraid of their kids being snatched by some sicko or are too busy/tired to spend time outside w/their kids, its an absolute shame, and probably one of the reasons, among many others I am sure, that kids today are more obese than in the past.

OK, off my soapbox.

I feel the same way. My kids would rather sit inside and talk on the phone then go out and find new friends. They are getting the hint that they will spend more time out side this summer.
