if your stressed and over 30


Recommended Posts

You NEED to read this, it'll make you smile again!

 

Just for a minute, forget everything stressful and read

this...............

 

Close your eyes and go back in time...

Before the Internet or the Apple Mac.

Before semi-automatics, joyriders and crack....

Before SEGA or Super Nintendo...

 

Way back........

 

I'm talking about Hide and Seek in the park.

The corner shop.

 

Hopscotch.

Butterscotch.

Skipping.

Handstands.

Football with an old can.

Fingerbob.

Beano, Dandy, Buster, Twinkle and Dennis the Meanace.

Roly Poly.

Hula Hoops, jumping the stream, Building dams.

The smell of the sun and fresh cut grass.

Bazooka Joe bubble gum.

An ice cream cone on a warm summer night from the van that plays a

tune -

Chocolate or vanilla or strawberry or maybe Neapolitan or perhaps a

screwball

 

Watching Saturday morning cartoons....short commercials,

The Double Deckers, Road Runner, He-Man, Zeebedee Tiswas or

Swapshop?, and 'Why Don't You'? -

or staying up for Doctor Who.

When around the corner seemed far away and going into town seemed like

going somewhere.

 

Earwigs, wasps, stinging nettles and bee stings. Sticky fingers.

Cops and Robbers, Cowboys and Indians, and Zorro.

Climbing trees.

Building igloos out of snow banks.

Walking to school, no matter what the weather.

Running till you were out of breath, laughing so hard that your

stomach hurt.

Jumping on the bed. Pillow fights.

Spinning around, getting dizzy and falling down was cause for giggles.

Being tired from playing....remember that?

 

The worst embarrassment was being picked last for a team. Water

balloons were the ultimate weapon. Football cards in the spokes

transformed any bike into a motorcycle. Choppers and Grifters

 

I'm not finished just yet.....

Eating raw jelly. Orange squash ice pops.

 

Remember when...

There were two types of trainers - girls and boys, and Dunlop Green

Flash

and the only time you wore them at school was for P.E.

You knew everyone in your street - and so did your parents.

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

You didn't sleep a wink on Christmas eve.

When nobody owned a pure-bred dog.

When 25p was decent pocket money

When you'd reach into a muddy gutter for a penny.

When nearly everyone's mum was at home when the kids got there.

 

It was magic when dad would "remove" his thumb.

When it was considered a great privilege to be

taken out to dinner at a real restaurant with your parents.

When any parent could discipline any kid, or feed him or use him to

carry groceries and nobody,

not even the kid, thought a thing of it.

When being sent to the head's office was nothing compared to the fate

that awaited a misbehaving student at home.

Basically, we were in fear for our lives but it drive-by

shootings, drugs, gangs etc. parents and grandparents were a much

bigger threat!

and some of us are still afraid of them!!

Didn't that feel good? Just to go back and say, Yeah, I remember

that!

I remember when....

Decisions were made by going " Ip Dip Dog Sh*t "

"Race issue" meant arguing about who ran the fastest.

Money issues were handled by whoever was the banker in "Monopoly".

 

The worst thing you could catch from the opposite sex was germs.

And the worst thing in your day was having to sit next to one.

 

It was unbelievable that 'British Bulldog 123' wasn't an Olympic

event.

Having a weapon in school, meant being caught with a catapult.

 

Nobody was prettier than Mum.

Scrapes and bruises were kissed and made better.

Taking drugs meant orange-flavoured chewable aspirin.

Ice cream was considered a basic food group

Getting a foot of snow was a dream come true

Older siblings were the worst tormentors, but also the fiercest

protectors

 

Pass this on to anyone who may need a break from

their "grown up" life...

 

I DOUBLE-DARE YOU

I remeber those days too, parents complaining I never did anything other girls did and moaning about me being a complete tomboy and coming home with my clothes all dirty and ripped from this scrap or that. Other boys parents coming to the door and complaining I'd bloodied their poor sons noise again. Hell coming to think about it it was bloody brilliant. :dance: :dance:
