License to thrill circa 1980













I used to keep this in my "treasure box". Other things kept in my treasure box: Canadian money, a sand dollar, a small silver spoon, Cabbage Patch Kids birth certificates, the rubber bands from my braces and a small cowbell which, along with some string, was once used to create an elaborate device that I hung up in my room to alert me of intruders.

Canadian money? If you have one of those old two dollar bills (the red ones) then you should look into cashing it in. It's almost worth 2 dollars US!

Sweet.

damn.. thats almost 500% appreciation.

OH, and I still use my minicowbell. Nothing beats good ol' low-tech intrusion detection. Only difference is that now is its not a pail of marbles and can of silly string awaiting the unsuspecting prowler.

Damn, the Burger King was creepy even then!

Your treasure was way better than mine. I think I just had broken bracelets made of plastic and elastic bands that I got when I was five. Plus, I never had a license plate, BK or otherwise. I'm so jealous. I think I'll go drown my sorrows ina diet coke. *sniff*

I got a fever and the only prescription is more cowbell. And maybe a license plate from the BK Lounge

Where did you hide the smack, then?

Wow! Yours really was treasure! All I found in mine was a retainer (funny, since I never had one), my Culture Club and Wham! fan club membership cards, a "Where's the Beef?" button for my way cool jean jacket, and a love letter from my 6th grade boyfriend, Dusty Sherwood, that read: "Hey, are your boobs bigger today? I think I love you more today. See you at lunch!"

Nope...didn't make that one up. I sure knew how to pick 'em then as now. What a charmer!

I do want to know how you slept with the knowledge that the BK was at your door...

Sassy- I love the casualness with which Dusty Sherwood comments on your breasts, tell you he loves you more today AND he'll see you at lunch.

Dude...I agree with Sarah, apparently the King was creepy even back then. Wow.

Thank God that was in your treasure box and not on your bike.

And for the Hors that read here the "Saftey is no accident" could be put to good use.

"Saftey is no accident" =
"Saftey is no babies" or
"Saftey is no VD"
