Tin baths, outside netties, and chip butties. And, don't forget the Y.T.S.


I trust this video will count?
What about plugged nickles? Or wooden nickles? I am sure many would know wash boards but have you washed on one? A juice squeezer. A sock hop.

Pure nostalgia... And also frustrating when someone else in the house wants to make a phonecall. -.-

Actually yeah, we used a washboard in my old apartment because the laundromat wanted highway robbery to use the machines. >:(

Ah star 6 9, the way you redial the last number that called... I wonder if it still works.
I guess phones these days have call logs, heh.
I replied to a bunch of things!

Was that intentional, having been such a short-lived name that only a subset of a generation actually recognizes or identifies with it, or did ya just not feel like typing out "millennial?" XD

Yup. But that was widespread enough to be pretty notable to 2-3 generations.

I might know what plugged nickles are (is that one of the coin-inside-a-coin, uh, coins?), I've had wooden nickles and I think some places still make them, and I'm familiar with multiple items that seem appropriate to call a "juice squeezer" (so I don't know). I know what a washboard is, but indeed have never used one, nor do I understand what would have made them useful; I remember my mom doing laundry in the bathtub, just swishing things around with a hand and sometimes rubbing things more directly together for stubborn bits. I think I've heard of a sock hop, I might know what it is, but that's as much as I got for that one. ^^;

And I'm a millennial.

My first thought was "hey, aren't you the generation before mine? I know some of those." Then I checked and realized you're right on the line of baby Gen-X and elder Millennial, so... makes sense. XD



If the teacher pops a test
I know~ I'm in a mess
And my dog ate all my homework last night
Riding low in my chair
She won't know that I'm there
If I can hand it in tomorrow it will be~ al~right~!

Sillybandz. I genuinely miss them and remember the few months craze! I still have about twenty I wear from time to time, but really wish I had more so I could make color schemes while still having twenty-five or so on my arm.

...I looked it up. They are still being sold. Guess what I'm doing when I get some wiggle room in wallet town.


I spose this would be more of a 'no generation after me will probably get this' vs something only my generation will understand. Except... Maybe the thrill of opening a new pack!🤭
