Sometimes on the radio, I hear the hosts read off a list from a magazine or newspaper about things that are common to us now, but that probably won't be around in five to ten years. Today, this list includes things like the home phone, cable boxes, piggy banks, and cars with manual transmissions. As I enter my 40's, there are many things from my childhood that I can remember that have made the list. I remember cigarette vending machines, recording music onto cassette tapes directly from the radio, and adjusting rabbit ears to get a better tv signal. Most of my memories from this list also remind me of my grandmother's house. She had a cuckoo clock, a rotary phone, had milk jugs delivered to her door, and a large freezer that opened on the top...where you could always find a box of ice cream sandwiches. I couldn't imagine a month of brain freezes with using an ice cream sandwich, so I took a few big bites of the soft chocolate "bread," and the vanilla ice cream in between. Outside of almost choking as it turned to a type of paste and mush in my mouth, my last memory before passing out (not really) was that of the onset of yet another brain freeze!
