now this isn't a list of things from my childhood that i wish still existed. because a lot of them, most of them, do. i just wish i was at an age where they were still socially acceptable. or that i can just once again make them acceptable, at any age. my life would be a vast improvement. no, really though.
blow up furniture. do you know how much easier my life would be in terms of moving and furniture replacement if it were still acceptable to have a bright orange blow up couch?! seriously.
blanket and pillow forts. i would like to build a blanket and pillow fort in my living room and hide in it for hours until i feel like dealing with the world again. and then have a mommy clean up the mess.
scrunchies. modern day hair holding devices hurt my head and damage my hair. can't it be time to bring back scrunchies please?!
eating lunchables every day. busting out the occasional lunchable - don't even tell me you don't still do it. but i wish it were acceptable to eat pizza lunchables every single day. and dunkaroos and koala yummies. so basically i wish eating healthy never became a thing.
owning a hamster. some days i really want a rabbit, but my college roommate had rabbits and those things are a bitch to take care of. so then i think that i want a hamster, but since i'm not 10, apparently i can't get one any more. sad.
clap lights. that was my favorite part of my room as a kid. clap on! clap off! my mother eventually hid it from me because it annoyed her so much. when i finally found it some 10 years later, it didn't work any more.
candy and dessert disguised as cereal. sure they still have lucky charms but for the most part they've done away with the truly terrible for kids cereals, and that's a shame. french toast crunch, oreo o's, rice krispie treats. i'd actually eat breakfast if those were still acceptable "cereals."
shaquille o' neal movies. perhaps they never were acceptable but there was a time you could admit to watching kazaam. whatever, it was awesome, and if he made another movie, i'd watch it.
what would you still do if it were socially acceptable?
