Do you remember a time when...

   Decisions were made by going "eeny-meeny-miney-moe"?

   Mistakes were corrected by simply exclaiming, "Do Over!"?


"Race issue" meant arguing about who ran the fastest



Catching the fireflies could happily occupy an entire evening?


It wasn't odd to have two or three "Best Friends"?




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

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

Saturday morning cartoons weren't 30-minute commercials for action figures?


"Oly-oly-oxen-free" 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?

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


Taking drugs meant orange-flavored chewable aspirin?


Water balloons were the ultimate weapon?



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