" THE OLD DAYS"
I often look back at the yesteryear and contemplate the changes in things through time, then ponder the difference a bit further. I vividly recall when I was a kid, myself as well as all my playmates had " G.I. Joe " dolls, and trying not to sound girlish they were not referred to as dolls but " Action Figures ". If you were one of the lucky ones yours came with the Kung Foo grips. As for video games the only one available was " Pong". Yes, you remember sitting there for hours watching the little square ball being struck between two white sticks, but it was very entertaining at the time. At least back then there was no such thing as A.D.D. Instead it was just a simple case of someone giving little Johnny too many sweets and he had a sugar rush. Back when kids were very content playing outside with a new Sponge ball, not with a computer. Remember bath night ? Squirting water into your sibling's face with the hose from the rubber contraption hanging from the shower head, only to have your Mother walk in and scream as you wondered why your kid brother's breath now smelled like a dead goldfish left in vinegar.
Unlike today where children now demand their privacy, and things that are private now come in small cardboard boxes. Speaking feminine products, remember when Kotex was as big as a twin size mattress ? But in hindsight so were the bloomers they were attached to. As for the bloomers no one wears them anymore, but when did it become ok to be 250 pounds overweight and have your thong clearly showing with two ass cheeks holding the material as though it also has the Kung Foo grip. Speaking of bigger, let's not forget the hairdo's either as we have all seen pictures of Moms beehive, and some of you reading this won't admit to it, but actually wore one. But when did weaves behaving badly become ok ? Or were we not supposed to notice you left the house with a bob, then came home looking like Rapunzel after being caught in an electrical storm? Remember old cars ? Shiny chrome and classic lines they were built like tanks, but I also vividly remember there was no A.C. in a lot of them. So on a hot day you could lose the top three layers of skin from your back, or legs if you had shorts on getting out of one. So next time someone tells you how great the old days were, just remember bath night before you answer them.. :)
