Unironed cotton sheets looked terrible and were uncomfortable
to sleep on. They weren't smooth at all. We also polished our
shoes all the time.



My wife still irons our sheets, guess she is old skool!

My dad used to make me run down to the bar and see if he was there. Talk about dumb. He could have used the phone and just called.

Another case of using drugs to win. Drugs were used to postpone puberty. How sad !

True.

Though I used some drugs at 13 recreationally, and didn't win a damn thing.

Remember when the headilght dimmer was on the
floor of your car? And you could actually change
a headlight yourself in about 2min and not have to
find a specialist to do it?

And when they gave you a new license plate every
single year and you always had to go to the DMV
to get it? None of this pay on the net and they send
you tags, there were no tags. And there was just
one kind of plate, they didn't have 10 choices.

Remember when checks were all the same? No
waterfalls, no kittens playing. Checks hell, I haven't
had paper checks in 10 years.
