Think back...

Before the Internet or AIM
Before playstation2 or X-BOX
Before the 5 hours of homework you put off every night...
Before being stressed everyday…

…Way back...

I'm talking bout hide and go seek at dusk.
Red light, Green light.
Playing kickball & dodge ball until your porch light came on.
Mother May I?
Red Rover
four square
Hula Hoops
Running through the sprinkler
Happy Meals
Getting the privilege to sit in the front seat of the car


Watching Saturday Morning cartoons
Like Rocko's Modern Life and Doug
Or what about legends of the hidden temple, global guts, double dare, and who, ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARK!
Who could forget Snick
Or the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Scooby Doo, and Power Rangers,
Christmas morning...
Your first day of school
Bedtime Prayers and Goodnight Kisses
Climbing trees
Getting an ice cream off the ice cream truck
A million mosquito bites and sticky fingers
Jumping down the steps
Jumping on the bed
Pillow fights
Running till you were out of breath
Laughing so hard that your stomach hurt and you almost peed your pants
Laughing so hard that you did pee your pants
Being tired from playing all day
Your first crush...
Rainy days at school meant playing "Heads up 7-Up" in the classroom
Remember that?

I'm not finished yet...

Kool-Aid was the drink of the summer
Giving your friends a ride on your handlebars or spokes
Wearing your new shoes on the first day of school
Class Field Trips
When nearly everyone's mom was at home when the kids got there.
When getting high was swinging on the swing-set
When $5 seemed like a million, and another dollar a Miracle.
When your parents took you to McDonalds and you were so cool.
When Toys R Us overruled the "mall"

I want to go back to the 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.
Money issues were handled by whoever was the banker in "monopoly"
Catching fireflies could happily occupy an entire evening
It wasn't odd to have two or three "best" friends.
Saying cuss words were referred to the "F, B or S - word" or h-e double hockey sticks.
Being old, referred to anyone over 20.
The worst thing you could catch from the opposite sex was cooties.
The only real heart break you had was when your mom wouldn't buy you that new toy
Nobody was prettier than Mom
Nobody was cooler than Dad
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 an inch of snow was a dream come true.
Abilities were discovered because of a "double-dog-dare"
Spinning around, getting dizzy and falling down was cause for giggles.

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