Do You Remember When Everybody Wanted to be Down?

Reminiscing on my childhood usually triggers happy memories of Nutty Buddy ice cream with the waffle cone on warm summer days, smells of freshly cut grass in the morning, playing hopscotch and jump-rope with all the cool girls with the long pig tails, and enjoying a bowl of Apple Jacks on Saturday mornings while watching Doug and Goof Troop.  Those were the days!

Does anybody want to take a trip back to the 90s with me? I'll pay the fare!

Anyways, another fond memory of childhood for me was singing on the playground.  It seemed like back then all the girls wanted to be members of SWV, Xscape, TLC, or Jade.  All the guys thought they were New Edition, Boyz II Men, or Michael Jackson.  Either way, everybody was a star on the playground.  When I wasn't a member of Xscape or TLC, I was a solo star:  Brandy.  One of the best days of my life was when my god-sister Vee bought me Brandy.  I played the poor tape so often my entire family was sick to death of it.  My favorite song to sing on the playground from the album was "I Wanna Be Down" with all my friends.

Long live the 90s!
