There are a lot of things about our childhood that we miss. Sometimes it is nice to take a walk down memory lane and look at old pictures to remember the good times. Then there are some things from our past that we are happy to live without. No seriously. Because of these things, I don't even want to go back in time. I'm good right where I am at.
Like these little ice creams. Hey, does anyone want to eat some wood? While it is nice that these wooden spoons were good for the environment, they were terrible for our tongues. No one wants splinters, let alone splinters in our tongues. What a nightmare! You couldn't even really enjoy that perfectly portioned amount of vanilla ice cream because you were terrified of what was going to happen to your mouth when you used that dreaded spoon. I am cringing just thinking about it.
Here are some more pictures of things from back in the day that definitely won't give you any nostalgia.
Remember rectangle cafeteria pizza? This was the stupidest slice of pizza that we have ever seen! The sauce to cheese ratio was way off. There was way too much sauce and way too little cheese, yuck! But we still ate it like monsters. We certainly were not going to let it go to waste and it was way better than the hamburgers, mystery meat or the corndogs. Gross, gross and more gross. I am just going to add that we don't miss cafeteria food in general. School lunch was the worst!
The Rachel was an iconic haircut, that's for certain. The Rachel looks stupid on anyone who's not Rachel in season one of Friends. That's also for certain. Sorry if you once had that cut, but go back and take a look at pictures and tell me what you think.
Fingernail piercings were the frosted tips of the hand. There, I said it. Yes I am incredibly brave. You want to fight me on that? I didn't think so. This was basic and beige before we even knew what that meant.
Can we all stop pretending that Little Bear was a good show? It's 2017, enough time has passed. Let's be honest with ourselves. It wasn't good, we never liked it and we are glad that we don't have to watch it anymore.
How else are you supposed to clean the dust? Plus it gave you a chance to admire how much the grey was turning yellow. Isn't that fun? Guys? Look, anything to make the day go by but I am glad we are in a better place.
That's what I love about fake IDs, man. I get older, they stay the same. But I don't miss having to memorize every single detail just in case someone asked me my height or my address. Those bouncers were terrifying!
Even IF you got the timing right, chances are the DJ would start talking over the song at the end and then it would be tainted. Come on, DJ! Work with me here! I don't need your annoying voice ruining my favorite song.
It made your hair look so dry. Still, you felt so cool. You were wrong, so very wrong. Let's say "so" one more time. So. But Britney was doing it and Christina so you had to be a part of it. You just had to!
12. When These Babies Dropped On The Ground And Flew Open
...causing all of your belongings to fall all over the place. I hope you didn't have anything embarrassing in there! But hey, at least the bumps on the case were fun to draw around with your gel pen. It was the simple joys.
Hold on, let's think bigger. Why stop at candy cigarettes? What if they made candy versions of EVERYTHING that causes cancer? That's a fun idea. But seriously, I can't believe we walked around smoking fake cigarettes. That would never happen today.
CraZArt and RoseArt were the big two competitors to Crayola. It was the most one-sided competition ever. Sorry, other crayons. Crayola was and still is the only way to go and no crayon will ever compare.
