Big Wheels and Banana Seats

Last night Michael was writing something about fads for a school paper. We ended up on the computer looking at fads of the 60's, 70's, 80's, and 90's. I couldn't believe my ears when Michael asked me what a Big Wheel was. I know they're still around, but obviously not like when we were kids, when I think just about every kid had one.

He also had never heard of banana seats. That one I can understand a little bit better, but when I was a kid they were quite popular. They were nice because they were much easier to ride double with a friend. I find it quite amusing that things I was so used to being around and popular, were so strange and new to my teenage son. Did I grow up in the "Olden Days"? :)

Tonight Dave and I went out to dinner with some friends. When we got home Steven was doing stuff with the phone taped to his head. He was talking to my mother in law, but said he needed his hands and didn't want to hold the phone with his shoulder. We do have speaker phone, but I guess he either didn't want to use it or didn't think about it. I thought this was pretty hilarious!
