We did it in homeroom in 1971! 12 year old girls.. yep, washed it off before going home, but I really think our mothers knew
I lived there almost 12 years with just a swamp cooler. Bloody thing was useless in haboob season!
Georgia, does he really let The Girl put him in baby clothes? We want photos!! :)
My first cat, a tabby named Sasha, would let my toddler nephew use her as a pillow, and the little girl I babysat would pull her around in a red plastic “mesh” shopping bag.. she was such a lovely girl!
I know just what you mean.. Mama left in 2014 and Daddy in 2017. I would give anything to see them again :( And my Granny, who passed in 2004, the day before her 104th birthday :(
My mother wouldn’t let me wear makeup in junior high. Guess what we 12 year olds used homeroom for … LOL! She also wouldn’t let me get my ears pierced til I was 13. And even then insisted a doctor do it, who got the holes uneven!
My sister used to sit at the table and measure when Granny cooked. The woman never measured! It took me years to finally make chicken gravy that tasted like hers (I still say she left out an ingredient when she told me!). My sister is still trying to recreate her egg noodles, and refuses to use the recipe I found that tastes just like them sigh
You know, it could be. My family is mostly Midwestern, and no one ever really said why, but we all did it. Personally I think it gives it a sweeter taste :)
I’d eat that anytime! Thankfully my husband and I are the only ones who like corn on the cob, so allllll ours!
I always salt my watermelon. I think I got that one from Daddy :)
