I sucked at tetherball because I was short. I knew I was never going to win so my strategy, if I got the ball, was to try and hit the other person with it.

I was the tetherball champion, I could beat anybody, even though I was short. Although if the competitor was short as well, it was certainly a bonus. Alright Smaug, you and me at the playground, now! IT'S ON!!!!!!!

We used to play kiss & tag in grade school until I was traumatized by one boy holding me down to kiss my cheek and leaving snot on it.

Eww, Lodi.
Yeah, tetherball. Foursquare too. Playing in general.

I forgot about four square.

I would probably never ever think of Bob Hancock again if he hadn't snotted my cheek in 2nd grade.

Foursquare! Sometimes we got too involved and laid out for that ball. Ouch!

Necco Wafers...I liked the brown ones too. I used to play communion with them, it must have been a catholic school thing...don't get me started!

LOL! We played communion with them too! Way yummier than the "hosts" and didn't stick to the roof of your mouth.

I don't think I've been garrotted since my last tetherball game.

As for four-square, I still have fond memories of participating in a 24-hour marathon of it at an SF convention in the early 90s. Alcohol may have been involved.

Now remind me, are the inside lines considered in play and the outside lines out of it, or vice versa?

You can still get the Necco wafers. I bought a couple of packs at Dollywood in TN. Each pack had about 10 wafers and cost a quarter. Seems like we used to pay a penny or a nickel for them.

I love Beeman gum also. Found some at a country store in NC last weekend. Five sticks, $.99. When I read the ingredients, I was surprised to find it was made in Colombia. They also had Blackjack (for the few folks who like licorice), Clove, and Teaberry.

Never heard of it.

I do recall getting in trouble by the P.E. teacher in grade school because I thought the Hokey Pokey was dumb and I refused to participate.

Funny that you say that Vickie. We were discussing the theme music to the Teaberry Shuffle just this past weekend.

But that's what it's all about!

I must have gone to a really lame school - I never played tetherball or foursquare.

I used to love tetherball but I am 5'2" and I was never a good player. I learned to play at summer camp and I got my but kicked but I loved it. 4 square ah memories! How about kick the can anybody play that?

We had huge neighborhood games of kick the can! Good memories...spud, too, anyone else play that? It may have been regional, not sure.

Teaberry gum was my all time favorite gum, I remember the shuffle though I know I couldn't do it today!

The Hokey Pokey
With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.

Larry La Prise, the man who wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at age 93. The most traumatic part for the family was getting him into the coffin.

They put his left leg in..... well, you know the rest

I miss hopscotch, jump roping with lots of players, and kicball. I play hide and go seek with my grandson
I also miss tangy taffy, pixy sticks and Jolly rancher sticks. Mostly I miss most of my back teeth now! LOL
I'm getting a partial. Do I have to use that polly grip crap that Tony insists on leaving a glob of in the bathroom sink?

Haha.

I remember the Teaberry Shuffle and the Herb Alpert song that played for it.

But you don't have to remember it to see it:

How perfect was that teaberry shuffle commercial??!! Thanks, Jan, for posting it.

Chinese jump rope! My goodness, I shudder now when I think of the cadence that we said with it- "ching chang one, ching chang two...", doesn't that sound awful? Here's to heightened awareness!!

Kickball was so much fun, the only "ball" game where you could foul out. I just don't remember if it was two or three foul balls...

We played punch ball also (at least that's what we called it). Your fist was the bat and we "hit" one of those pink balls that everyone had, the kind you played stoop ball with, another good way to pass time.

I could beat the pants off of anyone in tetherball. I would have welts on my forearms. I miss it too. Anyone ever play Nationball?

You missers of chocolate Necco wafers should have tried commuting in the 60s to downtown Boston from Kenmore square, home of the Necco! The other flavors were ok, but when they made chocolate it smelled like really rich chocolate cake! Imagine smelling that while waiting for the 5:30 bus home.....
