I really like talking about my childhood. Probably 65% of my conversations have at least something related to my past mentioned.
For example, today at lunch my friends and I started talking about discipline. Whether or not spanking is ok, grounding, timeouts...you get the idea. Now, I was never grounded. Thank goodness. Although I definitely think that would have been a really effective punishment for me.
Also, we had a very animated discussion about childhood TV shows. For example, Wishbone. Who the heck came up with that idea? a little dog, that transports himself into classic literature and becomes a part of that. Do you remember the Rip van Winkle episode? Wishbone had a beard and interacted with humans. Such a weird show. I also loved Recess, Dark Wing Duck, Reading Rainbow (c'mon, who doesn't love LaVar Burton?).
Bottom line, I love talking about my childhood; my memories, the ugly years, the laughter. In my mind, it was all good.
