Top Old-School Nostalgia in Six

This month, we asked you to turn you attention away from these messy, modern times and ponder the proverbial “good-old days” for SixContest #128. Sixers thought back fondly on playing outside (“Making potions of sticks and mud.” – JennaB125) and inside (“Rainbow road is impossible to win.” – Kenzieknaak). Some of you were trendsetters (“Our roller skates invented the craze.” – zsuzu), others were heart-breakers (“Guys fought over me in Kindergarten.” – Neesha101), and penny-pinchers (“Always checked phone-booths for missed dimes.”DynamicDbytheC). You wrote about what you ate (“Bologna, American Cheese, Wonder Bread, Mayo.” – Ellis_Reyes) and what you wore (“Shorts under skirt, now monkey bars.” – RuthieBaby). No matter when you were in school, RomanAround shares a dynamic duo we all know: “Number two pencils and wide rule.”
