My Age is Showing
My age is telling on me. They don't "crank up" cars these days do they?
The other day someone asked me what the best remedy for a yellow jacket sting was. The first thing that came to my mind was - tobacco juice. Well, it took care of many nasty bites for me growing up.
Thank goodness these days we are so pro-active in using sunscreen. In my day, they sent us out with Coppertone (to get sun) then lathered us down with Noxzema that night when we looked like lobsters. The only hair gel we had was Dippity Doo, with a choice between pink and green. We also had to guess which Twin used the Toni?
Now I look at my friends, and I find myself asking, "Does she or doesn't she?" (Some things never change.)
PS So what are they going to call it now, "pressing the button" to start a car? Of course down here we will "mash that button".
