and by the way.....no ruffles with ridges.
oh, i'll eat them. no doubt about it. but i believe you are either a ridgy potato chip person (like my husband) or a smooth chip fan (like me:)
once, in an interview, she shared her secret and philosophy on teeth.
ahhhh, the memories:)
and they are missing out on REAL swings.
then you try to swing at the same exact speed and height as your friend and you say "we're in the same neighborhood":)
nearly breaking your ankle, twisting it at least once. childhood;)
then we have the wooden see saw, or teeter-totter.
if you're lucky not to get a sliver in your bottom, you would think you broke your tailbone because inevitably, the person on the other end (or sometimes you) would gets off without warning and
BAM...your end of the see saw bangs into the ground!
what in the heck were these things?
scary looking animals on springs. you just had to hop on them but after about 60 seconds, you would be totally bored:)
but the most amazing experience kids are missing today is the merry go round.
or whatever that short round thing was. heck, maybe they still have these playground toys. but just in case..... you know, a few of you are sitting on it and someone else pushes it. and while you're supposed to stay seated, it's a challenge to stand and move around. what a skill that was! i remember lying back, closing my eyes and feeling my head spin. then jumping off and trying to walk, but being too dizzy. SO MUCH FUN:) and life just wouldn't be complete without the memory of somebody screaming to get off and then puking their guts out. oh, that was really cool!!! yeah, they're missing out:)
there you have it...my 5 words.
my pathetically obvious example of wasting time:)
oh well...fun for a change.
