"SHIT!-I'M-OLD" SUNDAYS (so old that I forget it's sunday 'till monday)

SHUT IT BACK THERE my precious little grandhoodlums! Grammybitch is tryin' to drive! Just cuz my car doesn't have a freakin' puppet show goin' on for you, doesn't mean you gotta scream and holler like that! You kids don't KNOW from road trips! You think your grammybitch is so OLD do ya? My generation was the PIONEERS for road trips!

What? NO! You think I was countin' on an abacus when I was your age huh? I HAD portable computer. Just like you. Your GreatGrampyGrumpyAss would take us on some HORRIFIC ROAD TRIPS. And we didn't have any fancy shmancy Beta-Max player in our cars back then. SO I would take along my computer...laptop, if you will.


And I would spell stuff. ALL.DAY.LONG. That's what made me smarter than the rest of the family. And I STILL AM!

And I didn't play with no stupid tele-tubby creatures either. I had a MON CHI CHI. It was based on REAL ANIMALS. Nothin' virtual about my mon chi chi. AND it was VERY realistic. That monkey could stick its thumb in its mouth! Let me sing you the song about it...

mon chi chi, mon chi chi.
Oh so soft and cudd-aly.

I could sing that song the ENTIRE road trip! I was quite the vocal talent little O. Good times. Good times.

And also we'd bring along this crazy fun water game. Oh how we'd fight over that game. And it didn't need batteries! It worked with WATER. I tell you what...we lived in forward times back then. FORWARD times.


Now as soon as we get back from the liquor store, er, GROCERY store, GrammyBitch will tell ya all about that road trip where I threw up all over your GreatUncleDrunky while he was passed out on my lap....

The Waterfun game! I loved that.

BTW, would it make me old if I can't read your damn purple font against your orange background?

kristina....yes.

Now I am singing Monchichi...in my head! :)

Those were great flashbacks!!!!!

NIKOL said...

I, too, am going to have the Monchichi song in my head now. So, thanks for that. Next you're probably going to have me sing the theme song to Silver Spoons.

Eve said...

I loved the speller, and I loved spelling "boobless" on my calculator. Oh we were naughty back in the day. Is that where you learned to spell GrammyBitch? Cuz you learned that one real G O O D!

OMG! I almost fell out of my chair laughing as soon as I scrolled to the top of Monchichi's head. I knew his familiar "Short Natural" hairstyle right away. I hated that commercial jingle, which is BURNED in my head some 30 years later and now, it will be the soundtrack in my head for at least 3 or 4 days.

I think I will have to change your "old" to "poor" - the only thing on your list that we could afford was a (much smaller version) of the wonderful waterfuls! The commericals, however, I remember!

peewee said...

oh dede, surely by NOW you know that by "MY" I mean, borrowedslashstole from a friend.

Wenbren Explains It All said...

Monchichi, wow i had totally forgotten about those creatures!I was more into Strawberry Shortcake and all her friends, I collected them all. I was so boring on road trips I would sleep all the way then my parents would wake me up "we're here!!" and that was that, a complete blur in my life!LOL!

Kris said...

Mon Chi Chi and My Buddy are my favorite toy jingles.

My Buddy, My Buddy!
My Buddy and me
We like to climb a tree

I always wanted a speak n spell. What the *#%&! I was deprived!

Little Lovables said...

OH my gosh, I had all these toys too (love the water one)! my husband and I both had those monkey thumb suckers... and the sad part is WE STILL DO!

Lady of Perpetual Chaos said...

I HAD A MON CHI CHI TOO! It was much loved. But I don't remember the jingle....

I coveted the See&Spells of others. And the water games.

Also, I can't read your font either...so I'm old too?! Or maybe just blind.

rychelle said...

oh, mon chi chi, how i loved thee...

growing up an "army brat", i experienced more than my fair share of road trips. thank God for dramamine!

peewee said...

Geez! You guys ARE old! I will change the font to black. But I better get some presents for it!

Chaka said...

When you reminded me of the water toy a flood of memories came back. Those were awesome. I also loved the old vintage Atari games that my kids make fun of today. We are old!

Counselormama said...

I wanted that Simon press the color buttons memory game, always had to use it at a friends house!
