How did one survive growing up in the 80's and 90's?


Our baby prams had the most gorgeous lead based colours…


No such thing as tamper proof bottle tops…


Opening kitchen cupboards was a breeze… as safety locks were unheard off…


Cycling was like a breath of fresh air…


When thirsty we only drank tap water, bottled water was still a mystery…

We kept busy collecting bits & pieces so we could build all sort of things …


We were showing off how tough we are, by how high we could climb trees & then jumping down….It was great fun….



We could stay out to play for hours, as long as we got back before dark, in time for dinner…

We walked to school

We had no mobile phones, but we always managed to find each other…. How? No one knows…

We lost teeth, broke arms & legs, we got cuts and bruises and bloody noses…. nobody complained as we had so much fun, it wasn't anybody's fault, only ours


We ate everything in sight, cakes, bread, chocolate, ice-cream, sweet sugary drinks, yet, we stayed skinny by fooling around.


And if one of us was lucky to find a 1 litre coca cola bottle we all had a swag from it & guess what? Nobody picked up any germs...

We did not have Play Stations, MP3, Nintendo's, I-Pods, Video games, 99 Cable TV channels, DVD's, Home Cinema, Mobile phones, Home Computers, Laptops, Chat-rooms, Internet, etc ... BUT, we had REAL FRIENDS!!!!


We called on friends to come out to play, never rang the doorbell, just went around the back…


We loved being let loose in the big bad world…without bodyguards…

We played with sticks and stones, played cowboys and Indians, doctors and nurses, hide and seek, soccer games, over and over again…

When we failed our exams we were given a second chance by simply repeating the same grade…without visiting psychiatrists, psychologists or counselors…

Such were the days....

It happened to be an off-day for me today and I was just going through some of your previous posts and I was like WOW..seriously so genuine...some like the law of attraction, small is big, the one about change made a hell lot of sense..yet there were some like the one about fragrances, breaking the lul, late nights thoughts which were so simple yet so very true and heart touching...you surely have a flair for analyzing situations and people..keep up the genuineness..looking forward to some more gems from your end..
