– Do you have fond memories of playing hopscotch, building tree forts, skipping rocks or kicking the can as a child?
– Did you watch “Jaws” with one eye peeking out from behind your popcorn bucket, belt out the lyrics to Summer Lovin’ along with John Travolta and Olivia Newton John or dream of serenading (or being serenaded) by your crush with a boom box ala John Cusack in Say Anything?
– Were our childhood experiences in the 60s, 70s & 80s really all that different?
Julie Andrews shared “a few of her favorite things” via song (you’re trying to sing it right now, aren’t you)? Well, we thought we’d try to do this as well, except we can’t sing. Ok, technically we can sing, but not well. Instead, we thought we’d try the more modern approach and list our favorite childhood things in 140 characters or less.
Spoiler Alert: For those of you keeping score, most of us could not do this in 140 characters or less (it’s harder than one might think), but, we came close.
These were a few of our favorite things:
Lindsay (Fabulous Forties) – Some of my favorite 70’s things:
I loved Little Dogs, cutting oranges w/my dad for soccer games, going to the beach, hanging with friends, hanging at the pool, shopping w/ my mom, keds.
Karen (F’ing Fifties) – Some of My Favorite 70’s things:
Bonne Bell Bubble Gum Lip Smacker, Etch-A-Sketch, EZ Bake Oven, Barbie Hair Styling Head (in retrospect-so creepy) Sears Christmas Wish Book
Brooke (60-Something Baby Boomer) – Some of my favorite 60’s things:
Camp Windego summers, swim team, watching fireworks from our backyard, horses, sidewalk chalk art. Brand new school supplies and Easter outfits. My life-size doll and original Barbie. Always safe and loved.
Amanda (30-Something Millennial) – Some of my favorite 80’s things:
Going to the pool in the Summer. Eating frozen Snickers. American Girl books. Watching Alf, Fraggle Rock. Wanting to be Punky Brewster or Jem! Spandex pants (or shorts) with my New Kids on the Block t-shirt and neon slap bracelets.
