Remember when finding a penny was a lucky thing? Now nobody bothers to pick it up.

Remember the big gun like air jet vaccine injection? That was scary, much worse than a needle.

Red face Re: Things baby boomers remember

I remember in … oh-h-h... 4th or 5th grade I think it probably was... a girl in our class, whom I sat not that far away from, pee'd her pants in class. I can still remember the puddle it created on the floor under her chair.

I recall that in 8th grade (I think it may have been) I puked in math class...

Penny candy. And when I was little I used to think “Necco Wafers” were called “nickel wafers” because they cost a nickel. As did candy bars. Small Tootsie Rolls were longer.

I remember the big crayons. And penmanship lessons. Dunno whether they still do that.
