Today, I thought I would start out with a flashback boardgame style.
As much as I hated the tedious set-up of this game, what with all of the pressing of the cardboard store fronts into their appropriate plastic slots and whatnot, I loved this game. No really. Like, when you were in fourth grade and you'd say to your friend, "If you love it so much, why don't you marry it?" It was that kind of love. My own little plastic credit card? Cha-ching! Remember how excited you would get if one of your items went on clearance? I bet I could shop 'til I dropped AND beat you back to my color-coded parking lot anyday! Let's just say.. And so began my addiction to all things shopping. I blame you, Mall Madness.
This game was a sleepover staple. Obviously, you didn't want your face covered in those ridiculous plastic zits, so you either took the dare or upped the ante and told the truth. A few of the crazy things I can remember doing include: licking water out of a bowl like a dog, walking around the room clucking like a chicken, eating a handful of dog food covered in some sort of ketchup/mustard condiment medley, as well as a more-than-healthy-dose of prank calling.. neighbors, grade school crushes, you name 'em, i called 'em.
And just when it couldn't get any worse- After a full day of shopping, followed by the 90's version of Truth or Dare, why not dial up a bunch of hotties to find out who secretly admires you? Funny how ALL of the telephone numbers began with "555." Anyone remember the winning phrase, "You're right! I really like you!" I can almost hear it now...
Speaking of pogosticks, who remembers "Pogo Ball?" Unfortunately, I do not have much to report on this either, as I spent most of my time pogostick-ing, but I will admit that these silly little pogo balls somehow incorporated themselves into my grade school phys-ed classes. Yes, that's right. Pogo Ball relays. Potato sack, what? That's old school. If you didn't Pogo Ball, you were a loser.
That's all for this week's Flashback Friday. I had almost forgotten how much fun these are to put together! Don't EVER let me go for more than two weeks without posting one! Shame on you, fellow bloggers! Just kidding. I'll be back to blogging once this weekend is over. Hubs and I will be returning to Hometown, New Jersey for a little R&R as well as my baby cousin's Christening. Pictures to follow!
