• The Good Ol’ Days


    Shaun over at Prostituted Thoughts has a good post of what made the kids of yester-year. I’m reposting it here for nostalgia’s sake.

    “When I try and objectively compare kids nowadays and kids form my era a bit later and a lot before, I see that in comparison kids from today may be cute, but they’re wanting. They have less drive, aren’t as creative and although they’re smarter, they’re not so adept at having fun as children from past generations.

    Baseline, if you look at what makes a kid a kid, then you can put up a list like this one:


    1. Toys that went with you everywhere
    2. A body made of 23% sugar
    3. Playing outside
    4. Imagining a jungle gym was a spaceship
    5. A moldy granny you were forced to kiss on the cheek even if she smelled like cabbage and moth balls
    6. A relative that gave you awesome toys every Christmas that would annoy your parents to no end
    7. Velcro sneakers
    8. An inability to color coordinate your clothing, what we insisted was our style
    9. A squeaky voice we swore was a lot deeper than what we heard on video
    10. Saturday Morning Cartoons”

    I totally agree with you! I have such fond memories about my childhood but now I see that all the things that made it up are not here for the children. They do nothing of what I used to do and I think it’s a real shame.
