    when I was a kid, you could buy groceries without taking money to the store(debit cards)
    Checkers wouldn't have to hand enter your purchases (bar codes)
    Everyone was going to live like Ozzie and Harriet, Donna Reed and My Three Sons,
    when I was a kid.

    When I was a kid, “they” told me I’d have a decent salary if I got a college degree. Shoot for the moon I guess.

    I want a light saber, but I was born much too late. And too far away.

    Yeah, I wanted one, too, but I know how many times I cracked myself with nunchucks when I was a kid. With a light saber, I'd be in the E.R. every day, getting something sewn back on.

    I'd just like to relocate my Chuck Connors cap guns and holster.

    Now, where DID I put those...

    When I was a kid, I told myself that nothing after age 30 meant anything whatsoever - after all, people over 30 simply couldn't be trusted.

    Where is that little kid? He needs a taste of corporal punishment!

    Now that's what I'm talkin' about!
    I learned to holler I won't do it no more daddy, before I even knew what I'd done.
