Just what the title says
I'm hoping this will work.

Credit for this item really belongs to poisonivy and I. We try to make each other laugh by saying "Remember when..." and relating some story from our childhood.

It can either be:

*Bullet*Post some type of story, usually just a line or two, that happened between a few people, starting with "Remember when..."

It helps, also, if you put the name of the other person involved (and tell them to look here, as well!)

*Bullet*A bit of nostalgia, starting with "Remember when..."

Keep the comment at 18+ and below, please.

OT and replies are fine. *Smile*
