Remember back in the day when we had roller skating parties in middle school and only three TV channels? We rode our bikes for hours and no one could reach us. We didn’t have smart phones, internet, or surveillance cameras on every corner. We had shag carpeting, shag hair, and read Tiger Beat magazine.If you’re tired of reading all the depressing headlines and need a break from the endless turmoil in the world, take a fun detour back to your childhood and teenage years. Back in the Day is a collection of essays about growing up in the 70s and 80s. So kick back and reminisce about the time we were dumb enough to have a pet rock and we all had our favorite Brady Bunch kid. Life wasn’t perfect, but it was simpler and usually a lot more fun…back in the day.
