Life is ironic! When you are a child you are always rushing to become older and as an adult you try to find items that hark back to your childhood. Born in 1970, I am a child of the Atari, Lite Bright, and mood rings. I can recall coming home from school and tuning into my favorite show Gilligan’s Island and then shooting aliens in Space Invader’s until dinnertime. Occasionally, my entire family would sit down and play a game of Scrabble after dinner, which was a wonderful way to unwind and spend time together. Reminiscing back to a moment in life with less responsibility of adult worries is definitely some comfort!
