I can't tell my age!

Because I'm too lazy to think of anything else to post, and because I actually love this little quiz, I present to you...

The Older Than Dirt Quiz

Count all the ones that you actually remember (not that you've only heard about).
Ratings are at the bottom. The ones I REALLY remember are bold.

1. Blackjack chewing gum
2. Wax Coke-shaped bottles with colored sugar water
3. Candy cigarettes (and they had powdered sugar inside the paper so you could really blow "smoke!")
4. Soda pop machines that dispensed glass bottles
5. Coffee shops or diners with table-side jukeboxes
6. Home milk delivery in glass bottles with cardboard stoppers
7. Party lines (at my grandparents' house, but never at mine)
8. Newsreels before the movie
9. P.F. Flyers
10. Butch wax
11. Telephone numbers with a word prefix (OLive-6933) (We had letter prefixes; does that count? CR5-9999)
12. Peashooters
13. Howdy Doody (of course I know who he was, but I think he was gone before I came along)
14. 45 RPM records
15. S&H Green Stamps (My mom saved 'em, and I still remember where the Green Stamp Redemption Store was!)
16. Hi-fi's
17. Metal ice trays with lever
18. Mimeograph paper
19. Blue flashbulb (the square one on the top of my Instamatic that used 126mm film?)
20. Packards
21. Roller skate keys
22. Cork popguns
23. Drive-ins
24. Studebakers
25. Wash tub wringers

If you remembered 0-5 = You're still young
If you remembered 6-10 = You are getting older
If you remembered 11-15 = Don't tell your age
If you remembered 16-25 = You're older than dirt!

I'd love to hear your results, too! If you want to take this over to your place and post it, be sure to let me know so I can check it out. If not, just tell me in the comments how you did.

And have a great Friday, y'all!

Oh my! I remembered one more than you, though a couple of mine were different than yours. But we aren't really THAT old are we?

I can't tell my age either. :-) I think you and I must be the same age. ;-)
