The Chain that is not A Chain but just Fun.

Rayntbradbury.com nominated me for this Friday Funday Challenge created by AGuy Called Bloke and K9 Doodlepip!

Thank you and ,well what can I say ,thankfully is not a chain because I am totally incapable to keep them up.Plus, I am still traumatized by those awful chains that were circulating when I was a teenager: the scary ones promising the biggest of the misadventures if you broke them.Bare in mind at the time there was no e-mail and no self phone(yes,I am that old!)so everything was sent by post and usually,on top of the cost of the stamp,you were also asked to add a couple of notes in the envelope.And there it was where most of our weekly allowance went.Then,it came the time that I had to pick between break the chain or buy my favorite monthly magazine.Not an easy one but bravery took over:I broke the chain saved the money and bought the magazine!Guess what?Nothing bad happened,not even a bad grade in school.On the other side,not even Tom Cruise ever swung by at one at our party .

What Tom Cruise had to do with the chain?Actually nothing but the most appealing thing of the magazine was the horoscope and what a thirteen/fourteen years old girl looks for in the horoscope ?Love,of course.And what was the object of any teenager girl lust in the eighties?Tom Cruise,of course.I must say me and my friend were quite open minded and could have been more then happy with Morten Harley too.What Tom had to his advantage ,it was that he still had some teenagerly spots that made him closer to our regular boys friends and somehow,to our eyes,more accessible….if only the ocean it was not in between!

Now,after this completely unnecessary digression I am going back to the post I have been tagged on that is not a chain and whose questions I had so much fun answering.Hope you will enjoy them too .

  3. I remember those awful postal chains with the terrible threats. I think I threw them in the bin. I didn’t have the money to do it and no access to a photocopier. They were terrible things! This is much lovelier. A bat sounds like a fab pet. I wonder if they can be house trained 😄😄

  10. So if you had appeared on a game show in the ‘80s as a teenaged girl and the host asked you which prize on the wheel of fortune you’d most like to have, you’d have replied, “Take a Cruise.” 😂

  11. Oh my gosh, you reminded me of so much!
    I loved the Goonies, hated chain letters!
    My mother gave me some Chanel No 5 recently…I’m not a perfume girl but shes always worn it and I love it.
    Haha I remember pretending to sing with a jump rope when I was really little.
    This was very interesting! And I love your humour! 😊

  17. Hi Ortensia, thanks for the follow and likes on my blog.
    I’m an 80s child myself and I really loved your post – most of the best movies were made in the 80s after all!! 🙂
    I’ll get round to reading the rest of your posts shortly and maybe even do the personal questions myself. 🙂
    Many regards and all the best, CHRIS

  18. I love bats. They remind me of little flying dogs. I also love them because they eat spiders and other insects I don’t care for.
