Here’s a thought down Memory Lane that I found with a few additions of my own. Unfortunately, I don’t know who the author is but I thought that you might enjoy this as much as I did.

When I was younger, I’d put my arms in my shirt and tell people I lost my arms.

I would restart video games when I knew that I was going to lose.

I would put my feet in plastic bags before I put my boots on to go outside and play in the snow.

I would make my bicycle sound like a motorcycle when I used clothes pins and attached my baseball cards to the spokes.

I had one of those pens that had six colors and tried to push all the buttons at once.

I would eat spinach like my hero Popeye and feel like I had the biggest muscles in the world.

I would wait behind a door to scare someone, but soon leave because they were taking too long or had to pee.

I would fake asleep so that my dad would carry me to bed.

I used to think that the moon followed our car.

I would watch those two drops of rain roll down a window and pretend it was in a race.

I used to swallow fruit seeds then be scared to death that they were going to grow into a tree in my stomach.

I used to think that if I got a pair of new sneakers, like the kind a bug NBA star would wear, I would be able to run faster and jump higher than anyone else.

Remember when we were kids and couldn’t wait to grow up?
