When you were a kid, there was nothing like a packed lunch from mom. She would throw in some Fruit Roll-Ups, Dunkaroos and a Lunchables of course. No wonder why we have an obesity problem in this country. This was our nutrition.
You had Beanie Babies all over your room. Your biggest fear in life was that the tag would rip off because you knew they would be worth something one day with the tag on only. So, do you still have them? I didn't think so.
Inflatable furniture sounded totally cool, but in reality it wasn't cool at all. It was hot. It stuck to you and made you sweat and it was constantly deflating. They were really uncomfortable and lame.
They were a stamp and a marker all in one! You marked your friends up and your papers and notes and they were so awesome. You made sure that when you wrote your crush a note, you put a little pink heart on it.
If you were writing a boy you liked, you used your Milky Pens. If you were writing a note for a friend, your Milky Pens were a must. You alternated colors and everything you owned had Milky Pen all over it.

Looking back, it was big and cumbersome but at the time it was chic and hip and high tech. This was the coolest way to listen to Nirvana, Green Day and Cake and all the cool kids had one. The fact that you could walk around while listening to a CD blew your mind.
Movie day was everyone's favorite day of school. I bet it was the teacher's favorite day too because they didn't have to deal with us. It was the perfect day to take a nap, pass notes and whisper all the latest gossip to your friends.
