With all the kids sitting on Santa's knee telling him those items they want more than anything, made me think about my childhood days. What did you want more than anything in the world, how old were you and did you get it?
I wanted a Sindy.... got one on my 18th though! I dont think my parents liked me performing brain surgery on my dolls - my tiny tears went through hell (with no anaesthetic either!) - I was a strange child, but there again, Im a strange adult! hehehe
I think I was 8, maybe 9, but I really think I was 8 - and I wanted a Chemistry set. I really, really wanted one!! Didn't get it, though.
Then, when I was 9, or 10, but I think 9, I wanted this toy tree-house, thingy. Kinda like a doll house, with something like Weebles, (the tree popped up & open to expose the living quarters) and I got it. Odd, I really disliked dolls of any kind, but I liked that d@mn tree-house thingy!
An Easy Bake Oven, KCC. My sister had one and I just dreamed of making those delightful (not) brownies. I never got one, but both my girls have one now. Can you say living vicariously? I also wanted Light Bright sooooo badly. Tried to make my own version, but it just didn't turn out too well.
I remember a few years ago a friend told me about always wanting a Lite Brite and never getting it. I found one of the miniature ones that come on the end of a pen. Not sure if you've seen them. (Go to Google images and put in Lite Brite pen and there is one photo.) I bought her one. When I gave it to her she cried. She was so happy, you'd thought I had given her a million dollars.
LOL I remember the glue not working too well and I used some of my dads super glue to give myself a mustache... Trip to the ER and I really expected a good whooping but there were to many laughs at my expense. LOL I did what 7 year old boys do, play with stuff you're not supposed to play with.
There was one year that I made a list of about ten things and I got every single one of them. I commented on Christmas morning, "I got everything I wanted and more!". I remember my dad being so proud that he was able to do it. Now, mind you, I never asked for big things. So, it's not like my parents were rich and spoiled me.
I remember this poster well. A boy in my class (we were in junior high) got 3 days suspension for wearing a t-shirt to school with this exact poster on it. It was decided that it was far too revealing to wear to school.
My mother didn't want to buy me one because she said it's for boys. My father bought me one though, but I didn't get the chance to play with it cause I was too young for it then. I'm gonna buy one now after i get my X-mas bonus
Have you ever been a situation where you got the person you had your eye on then you realize that you don't want them anymore. Maybe it's because their personality that turned you off or maybe its that you only wanted...
I'm [momentarily] sick of hunting spammers and need some holiday cheer. What did you get for Christmas/Hannukah/Kwanzaa/Solstice/Festivus this year? It doesn't have to be something material, could be as...
