Yep, I’m a child of the 70’s and 80’s. Phrases such as “your face is going to get stuck that way” and “you’ll put an eye out” were common around my mom’s house. There were a good number of us that hung out and it was nothing to see a dozen rolling around the neighborhood playing some game or building some structure that on at least one occasion flooded the yard. Running with scissors? that was the least of our worries. We were known to shoot off fireworks with no parental supervision (ask SIT if I let him do that), our mothers didn’t need to call our friends mother, they just handled it. And we only wore shoes under protest. We were known and in some cases feared only because of sheer numbers. Yes sir and no sir were common responses. Head over to Mostly Cajun and see the list again and reminisce about the good old days.
