leeneia BS: Back When a Candy Bar Cost a Nickle (18) RE: BS: Back When a Candy Bar Cost a Nickle 06 Jun 21


Lots of things were different when a Hershey bar cost a nickel. Some differences were good, some were bad.

No bottled water. People didn't have to have water on their person all the time.

We rode bikes without helmets or lights.

As kids we left the house and went wherever we wanted for as long as we wanted, until suppertime or twilight.

No seat belts.

Some people whipped their kids with belts, and neighbors just listened to the screams.

People didn't gabble about other people's sex lives all the time. (I don't care if you are LBGTQI or A. I'm expecting the day when we have a sex classification for every letter of the alphabet.)

Hugs only occurred between small children and adults they loved.

School was so boring it was unbelievable, and apparently that was regarded as natural.

Golf courses had lots of golfers on them.

Disney movies offered glamour and magic.
