Blog Challenge Day 7: What were your favorite childhood toys?

I don't know why, but I was entertained by incredibly simple things as a kid. (I wrapped up the Contracts portion of bar study today and that statement feels an awful lot like fraudulent misrepresentation... I'm still entertained by incredibly simple things. Like this for example. Legal peeps: search for "torts" and get ready to giggle.)

One year for Christmas, my grandpa got me a box of Scotch tape because he was sick of me taking all of his tape and making tape balls. I was psyched. And in an event still commonly referred to as Boxgate, my dad threw away the box from the big-screen TV he bought for the Superbowl that I'd been playing house in for a week without checking to make sure none of my toys were inside. ALL OF MY TOYS WERE INSIDE. Including the giant stuffed bulldog I won from the claw machine at K-Mart when my mom finally gave in and let me play, thinking that if I lost once I'd lose interest. A note to all the parents out there: if you spend a month telling your kid they will lose at the claw machine and then give them a quarter, THEY WILL WIN AT THE CLAW MACHINE. And you will lose a lot more quarters.

Oh, and that baby doll that you actually fed and then it actually pooped. I had one of those too.

  6. My dad had some sort of claw machine super power so we always made him play for us. That box story had me giggling. :) This outfit is too cool.

  7. Cute outfit! Hope you're not going too crazy with the bar studying. Don't forget - it's a licensing exam, and you just have to pass. Can't get an A. This was my mantra! :)
