I habitually tie empty plastic bags in knots, just like we were all taught in school.

Come to think of it, my mother-in-law does that too. I never understood it. But then again, she does all sorts of things I don’t understand. LITERALLY! She even speaks in tongues!

I misread Raid Goose as Red Goose. This led me to remember Red Goose Shoes.

Some companies would include gifts inside their products. Warning video is very hick. I'm very proud to be considered a hick.

I loved going to Long John Silvers for this very reason --- back then they'd give kids a little plastic duobloon and you'd put it in the prize machine, twist a knob, and get an exciting prize! I'd always wear the cardboard pirate hat too.

FUN THREAD!

:pho:
Good idea Jo.

Here I am at 9 years old with a hot rod bike, wearing Garanimals and a cowboy hat, while inadvertently giving a 2 finger salute. :D

A few years later I would become a latchkey kid when my mom started working.

I loved Garanimals.
