Back in the 60’s we were all wild childs…
We rode bikes without a helmet
We rode in cars with no seat belts nor airbags
We sat in the front seat of cars with no restraints or piled up in the back of a station wagon
We lived in apartments with lead paint
We rode our bikes across town, (just had to be in before dark)
We drank from garden hoses
We drank from dirty water fountains
We chewed gum all day then wrapped it in paper for the next day
We ate candy from the necks of other people
We didn’t wash our hands after playing in dirt – spit was our antibacterial hand sanitizer
We hit kids in the head with Dodge Balls
We climbed ropes without protection
We ate what was put in front of us and didn’t complain otherwise we got smacked in the mouth
We played in rusted out cars, taxis, and vacant railroad trains
We inhaled 2nd hand smoke from our parents and drank from their glasses
We shared everything – clothes, shoes, and bathtub water
We had the front door key to let ourselves in with no fear of being snatched
Man, we were some wild childs back in the 60’s – how did we manage to stay alive?
