Do You Remember When Life Was Simple

I found this list online and it made me have a few flash backs to my childhood so I thought I'd post it to give you guys a memory jog....


Before the Internet & text messaging.

Before Sidekicks & iPods.

Before PlayStation2 or X-BOX.

Before the 5 hours of homework you put off every night.


When you rented VHS tapes, not DVDs.

When gas was $0.95 a gallon & Caller ID was a new thing.

When we recorded stuff on VCRs & paid $3.50 for a movie.

When we called the radio station to request songs to hear off our walkmans.

When 2Pac and Biggie where alive.

When the Chicago Bulls were the best team ever.

Way back......


Get Over Here!!!! means something to you.

Hide-n-Go Seek in the dark.

Red Light, Green Light.

Heads Up 7 Up. (played this game in school a lot)

Playing Kickball & Dodgeball even Wallball.



Tree Houses.

Hula Hoops.

Reading R.L. Stine's Goose Bumps and the Baby Sitters Club.

The annoying Nano Pets & Furbies.

Running through the sprinklers.

Crying when Mufasa died in the Lion King.

Happy Meals where you chose a Barbie or a Hot Wheels car.

Getting the privelage to sit in the front seat of the car.

Drinking Sqeeze It "Squeeze The Fun Out Of It"


Watching Saturday Morning Cartoons in your PJ's still wrapped up in your Garfield comforter.

Hey Arnold



The original Power Rangers

Or what about:

Ren & Stimpy.

Double Dare.

Rocko's Modern Life.


Clarissa Explains it All.

salute your shorts

Are You Afraid of the Dark?

The original cast members of all that.

hey dude.


pinky and the brain.


hangin with mr.cooper.

bill-nye the science guy.

Who could forget Snick? & Nick @ Nite
with Bewitched, I Dream of Jenie, The Facts of Life & I Love Lucy.

Where everyone wanted to be in love after watching
The Wonder Years.



Kool-Aid was the drink of choice.

Wearing your new shoes on the first day of school.

Class field trips.


When Christmas was the most exciting time of year.

When $5 seemed like a million, & another dollar a miracle.

When Toys R Us was the best place to be.

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' ment arguing about who ran the fastest.

Money issues were handled by whoever was banker in 'Monopoly'.

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

Being old referred to anyone over 20.

A chance to skate as a couple at the local roller rink was like winning the lottery.

Scrapes & bruises were kissed & made better.

It was a big deal to finally be tall enought to ride the 'big people' rides at the fair.

When playing Nintendo was the hardest thing ever.

When Ninja Turtles ruled the world.

When Lisa Frank was the raddest thing ever.

When a candy bar at the grocery store was the highlight of your day.

When the only thing you cried over was your mom being late to pick you up.

When stress was addition and subtraction.

When friendships were as complicated as who's house to sleep over and who's to TP

When shaving cream was just meant for play.

When a first kiss only lead to cooties.

When valentines day meant cards for all.

When birthdays were a class event.

When a friend moving away was the saddest day of your life.

maybe even when your friends didnt break off into different crowds, you were all one group.
