Food that is just food, not twisted high-fructose gene-mashups.

Being carefree?

To parents taking their kids out to play in the park and the sounds of their laughter as they played outside their homes after school? Seems like everyone is a shut in these days.

@Pandora You should come to my street. Noisy as hell with hockey, skateboards, etc. It has turned over into a neighborhood of young families lately.

Common sense?

Pandora's avatar

@janbb Not here. I think kids don’t go out because both parents go to work and either the kids go to a lot of after school activities, or they are stuck in front of the tv or computer, playing games. I guess the sicko child abductors scare a lot of parents into keeping the kids home as well.

What ever happened to canned food? Remember when several aisles in the grocery store were dedicated to it? That was back before the genetically modified fruits and vegetables and if you wanted a peach in the wintertime it came from a can. Strawberries in winter? Frozen or forget about it!

. . . parents taking responsibility for how their kids act and what they wear?

It disappeared when parents learned they could blame music, electronic media, and just about anything else other than their own lazy, inattentive selves.

Modeling clay? That stinky green kind.

The dead body I left in my closet, next to my hatchet. I can’t find it anywhere. :/

Green Goddess salad dressing? I LOVED that stuff. An icon of the 60’s & 70’s that was obsolete by the 80’s.

the JonBenet Ramsey investigation?

Area 1 instead of Area 51.

..My babies….They’re gone. They’ve been replaced by these huge people with kids of their own.

predictability? the milk man, the paperboy, evening T.V.?

Coloma's avatar

My 20 year old body? It has been replaced by a middle aged chicks muffin top. lol

ibstubro's avatar

The search for your 20 yo body was slightly less successful, @Coloma

Coloma's avatar

^^^ Ooooh….oooooh….

ibstubro's avatar

NO, @Coloma, I said your 20 yo body is, as yet, unfound.

lol

Whatever happened to the doors that the milkman put the milk in when he delivered??

ibstubro's avatar

What you talkin bout, @Willie?

I thought the milkman used to put the milk in insulated tin boxes.

Tropical_Willie's avatar

No my neighbor across the street when I was young, had a little door into the kitchen. It was between the breakfast nook and the cabinets by the kitchen sink. The house was build during the WWII time period in Southern California. It would hold four one quart glass bottles (cardboard cap and paper wrapper covering the top of the bottle.)

flip86's avatar

Rick Moranis. He was in everything back in the 80’s and 90’s, now he’s in nothing.

ibstubro's avatar

Never heard of the like, @Tropical_Willie. Thanks!

. . . chivalry? Does it only exist in 80’s movies? I want John Cusack holding a boombox outside my window. I wanna ride off on a lawnmower with Patrick Dempsey. I want Jake from Sixteen Candles waiting outside the church for me. I want Judd Nelson thrusting his fist into the air because he knows he got me. Just once I want my life to be like an 80’s movie, preferably one with a really awesome musical number for no apparent reason. But no, no, John Hughes did not direct my life

IheartMypuppy's avatar

@Blondesjon (you first answer) I agree completely, nowadays everyone is wearing clothes (that what I think) could be size (children’s) 5 but they’re (adults/Ladies) 10

I’m also going to have to say common sense, I knew this girl at school (lets for the sake of argument call her tree) So one day tree decided to pierce her ears, she used a pin from the bottom of someone’s shoes and did the first one, she didn’t have anything else to use so she only had one done, she then got in serious trouble because someone told on of the teachers, so yes I am seriously asking, whatever happened to common sense
