I remember that...

After the initial $1.00, you were on the hook for 8 at normal price but you could get it down to 6 if you bought 2 at half price right away.

Then when you fulfill your obligation, you canceled and wait for the famous "Please Comeback Offer".

You know you're old if your mom rang a cow bell out the front door to gather all her kids for dinner.

Mom or dad called us from the front porch, in a pretty loud voice. This seemed normal back then, but I never hear it in our neighborhood today.

^^^I have the modern version of those pedals, so I don't need to "remember" getting whacked in the shin years ago, I need to remember to be careful to not whack my shins with them every time I ride the bike with those pedals.

...and I spent half an hour with a Torx driver taking the skin-ripping grip studs out of a brand new set of pedals last week, before they had a chance to tear my shins.....

You know you’re old when … you buy a skateboard, when you shouldn’t (but you get excited, because your son was telling you about his skating exploits). You go skating and have an awesome session … then, 30 feet from the edge of the park, you push and your calf goes “POP”. You end up on the floor. Three weeks later, you finally get to the hospital and they x-ray you, then put you in a raised boot for a month, so the muscles can bind back to your Achilles tendon.

Day one in the boot
