I come across an article about
Inexplicable fads from our childhood
Who doesn’t love a little nostalgia?
A trip down memory lane
A look back at the things that used to bring you such joy as a child
Or maybe I’m just that way cause my Dad is Mr. Nostalgia himself.
(that’s a whole ‘nother story!)
I click on the article
Probably because I was hoping the jelly shoes were on their way back in style
I see the scrunchies in every color (how about genie clips?!)
or banana clips
The slap bracelets, I could never get those to work!
The hyper-color shirts,
When you touched them or got hot in certain areas, they would change colors.
Remember, Body Glove?
Those damn 5th grade boys would smack the girls as we stood in line.
Or they would come around and say they were “FBI”
Female Body Inspectors
You clever little 5th grade boys.
I haven’t seen one of these things in ages!
I remember these little plastic wonders.
Did you have a love for skating? They had a charm for it.
Were pink flamingos your favorite? Well, there was a charm for that
Want to display your love for harmonicas? Guess what, there was a charm!
I remember playing hopscotch in elementary school and using my charms
Or broken pieces of the bracelet as place markers…
This, of course, instantly put me in shopaholic mode!
And where would one go shopping for such things?
Like totally - Ebay, duh?!
Do you love plastic Thermos'? Do you want some charms? Check out this auction!
Am I really gonna spend my hard earned adult dollars on one of these kiddy things?!
I think so.
Maybe next time you run into me I'll be rockin my charms!
