Ok – not really a freakout – other than last week I was telling my friend I wanted to do a back to school post and I freaked out cause he told me the kids were already back to school.
WTF school? When I was a kid it was always around the first week of Sept. So I’m just gonna pretend that we’re all back in the 60s/70s/80s and show you the back to school goods you’d be seeing back then.
That’s right. Feast your eyes on some back to school shit from crinkly old newspapers that will blow. your. mind!!!!
These first few are particularly crinkly – they came from a house I’ve been helping clean out and were found wadded up around some old knick knacks and whatnot. So, I hope when you look a these you picture me rifling through the trash and squirreling wadded up balls of newspaper away in my purse cause that’s exactly what I did.
How many of you out there remember when the school lunch menu was printed in the newspaper – raise your hands! Sadly, I see very few hands raised out there. I totally remember it! I used to have the goddamn week memorized!
Here’s a sampling of what you could look forward to eating in the school cafeteria back in the olden days – with a neat little illustration for the next column at the end.
Autumn Delight Salad FTW!!!!
And in order to fill this post with more thrills, spills and chills I’m throwing in a bunch of other school/kid/teen/clothing stuffs too!
And yes I realize the dish cloths aren’t back to school related but you know I couldn’t not blow this teeny shit up!
How about a back to school “Recapture Course” at the House of Slenderizing! NO MENZ!!!
Back to School means birthday parties at the skating rink and bowling alley – obv!!
And finally, here’s some cleanliness and eating well illustrations from a Oregon Dairy Council activity booklet from 1956 that my friend’s mom had filled out in 4th grade.
And if you want more back to school goodness check out my old posts from a few years ago:
God I love this shit.
