"SHIT!-I'M-OLD" SUNDAYS

OH Grandbrats!! PUT down those stupid video games! That's all you youngun's do. Virtual this and reality that. It's all BullPuckey! Back in MY day we had real games. Games that required skill and smarts and talent! And I tell you what, I kicked your GreatUncleDumbAss's B.U. double T all the time. Your Grammybitch was a PLAY-UH.

First off I had a MASTER MIND, which is interesting since that's the name of the game!


Calculator?! HAY-ELL no! This may not LOOK like a game, but it was a game to me. I would follow your great grammycrazybitch all around the grocery store and add everything up for her. I would tell her the totals each and every time she put a new item in the cart. That didn't bother her at ALL. Because I was such a whiz-kid.


Another all time favorite. I tell you what...Don't tip the waiter cuz if you do tip the waiter when you're puttin' on a plater, you'll have to tip the waiter and you'll lose the game..la la la la la....


Oh, and then there was Mr. Mouth.(deep man voice "mister mouth mister mouth") I loved all games that had to do with eating.


Oh and then there was Perfection! This game was stressful little O's. VERY stressful. There was a timer and a loud buzzer and explosions! Oh. Good times. Best part? You could play it alone. And Being a latch-key-kid, I had to hone my skillz all by myself. Which was good, cuz then I would kick everyone else's arse!

What's a latch-key-kid you say? Oh don't worry, it's illegal now. But GreatGrammyCrazyBitch had NOOOOO problem leaving me at the mercy of GreatUncleDumbAss.

ANd OH! The playdough Barber Shop. That was my favorite loner game. In fact. I wouldn't share that bad boy with ANYone. LOVED to cut the beard of the hippie beard guy.


Good ole Stay Alive. I loved games where you annihilated your opponent. That's why I went into yoga, kids. To torture people in the name of peace! haha! I'm just KIDDING grandkiddlets, juuuuuust kidding.


Lame? LAME?!??!? WHA-CHYOU TALKIN' BOUT WILLIS??! I PITY THE FOOL WHO DON'T PLAY REAL GAMES. Now go get Grammybitch a Wine Cooler.

I won't lie old woman. I've never heard of any of those except Perfection. Which I had. And hated.
I found an old Mr. Professor calculator in one of my classroom drawers, now that? Bring back memories.

I FORGOT about Professor Calculator!! HAHA! Those were awesome. I never had one, they were for the cool kids. But I always wanted one.It's okay though, I still got my pocket adder!

Seriously, how are you not dead yet? You are clearly about 105. WAAAAY older than me.

I had several of those games. Apparently, I'm old too.

Do you remember the commercial for Stay Alive? The one where the kid at the end says "I'm the sole surviver!"
I never liked that commercial.

Oh my god, I had all those games. Don't Tip the Waiter was one of a long list of "Don't" games -

Don't Break the Ice
Don't Blow Your Top
Don't Cook Your Goose

YOU ARE KILLING ME!!! I'm about to go to eBay right now and start buying all of these. And don't listen to Sara or Kristina P., you're not old. They're just young. :)

I had totally forgotten about Mr. Mouth and Stay Alive! I loved them. And I had that same exact Play-Dough barber shop. AND, my boys have Perfection and I can verify that it is still as stressful today as it was back then.

I love Mr Mouth!! I think we are very nearly the same age, young peewee!

I think there's going to be a bidding war on eBay soon...

peewee said...

oh please..Kristina and Sara are LYING.

I guess I need to expand outside of the train game...I forgot about all of these!

I must admit the only game I had/have is Perfection. I bought that for my kids. You can still buy it, I know, Unbelievable...

I remember the pocket adder, too. We've come a long way, baby...

I had Mastermind. Actually, my friend had Mastermind. I had Mastermind - Travel. Because you never know when you would want to whoop up on someone while on the go.
But I also had Kerplunk! Straws and marbles; who needs anything else?

NIKOL said...

I'm seriously contemplating going over to eBay to buy a copy of Mastermind. I loved that game!

Lin said...

I used to LOVE Perfection and Don't tip the Waiter! And I completely forgot about Stay Alive. It was sort of a horizontal Kerplunk! in a way, wasn't it.

CynthiaK said...

Everyone loved Perfection, non? Okay, not everyone, but I did.

And wow, Master Mind! And Mr. Mouth! Oh, yeah, baby!!
