we were never overweight because we were always outside
We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle, and no one
actually died from this.
We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps and then rode
the hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes. After running into the
bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem.
We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we
were back when the street lights came on. No one was able to reach us
day. No cell phones. Unthinkable!
We did not have Playstations, Nintendo 64, X-Boxes, no video games at
no 99 channels on cable, video tape movies, surround sound, personal
phones, personal computers, or Internet chat rooms.
We had friends! We went outside and found them.
We played dodge ball, and sometimes, the ball would really hurt.
We fell out of trees, got cut and broke bones and teeth, and there
lawsuits from these accidents. They were accidents. No one was to blame
us. Remember accidents?
We had fights and punched each other and got black and blue and learned
get over it.
We made up games with sticks and tennis balls and, although we were
it would happen, we did not put out any eyes.
We rode bikes or walked to a friend's home and knocked on the door, or
the bell or just walked in and talked to them.
The idea of parents bailing us out if we got in trouble in school or
b r oke a law was unheard of. They actually sided with the school or
law. Imagine that!
Just chopped about half out and there you have my childhood, but then I lived in a big family and out of the city a bit.
But I'm only 18! The other day I was at my parents place and was talking to my brother about how my youngest brother never plays footy/cricket/anything/rides bikes/whatever like we did, he has a Nintendo 64, Gameboy and PC.
And before he was even in High School, he wanted a mobile phone!
We used to do, 1, 2 and 5 cent jobs for our parents, sweep driveways for little old shop owners so we could go to the General Store (yes we had a general store) and buy Gold Medal Soft Drink to share, and the 10c bottle return was always good for a 10c lolly bag.
