Surprise me with something "retro"

I remember work computers having the keys to the hard drives. No one ever locked them and I don’t remember anyone telling me where the keys were.

Good one!

And the keys were generally all the same.

No. My grandmother actually loved me. Trying to make you eat some Irish potato famine candy. I would be pissed if I were you. It’s obvious she was trying to rob you of your childhood. I bet she encouraged you to play with your ball in the street too.

Hey - don’t knock it … it’s really quite good. You still see it in grocery stores like Kroger in the deli from time to time.

Yeah I don’t think the locks were ever used. I doubt the key lasted very long in my house.

We had Astro pops and scratch and sniff stickers. I don’t think we’ve acquired the technology yet for colored pencils though.

I have no idea what this is.

It’s a cookie press. You put a die in one end, say a Christmas tree and fill it with cookie dough. When you turn the wheel, Christmas tree shaped cookies come out to bake. We have about 30 dies, stars,bells, Santas, even camels. You bake the cookies the decorate them. Here is a newer one.

We had a word processor when I was in high school. That’s what I used to do all my essays and reports on.

We didn’t get a computer at home until 95, the year after I graduated

Do the different colors have any specific meaning?
