What kids used to do in class before cellphones
We used to pass notes
We used to doddle on our binders
We played with the parachute in gym
Painted your nails with white out or glue
Struggled to stay awake when the overhead projector was on
Playing with your pencil toppers- remember the trolls
Playing with your pencil box that had buttons and that thing where you could change the date
Braiding your friends hair when sitting behind them in class
