OK, and sometimes we called them “jogging shorts” if we wanted to specify between the cut-offs and the (admittedly horrid) terrycloth shorts (and rompers). But nowadays the kids (laughingly) call them “dolphin shorts.” Which I completely don’t get.
I don’t get the “dolphin” part, and I don’t get the laughing either. In fact, I stopped watching basketball when the players started wearing those long baggy things that resembled baggy golf knickers. B-ball so lost the sexy then.

I guess, according to this 1960’s lotion dispenser, Jergens could even soften, smooth & sooth hands damaged by attacking forks and whatnot. Or maybe I’m just reading too much into the graphic.

Most of these items have never been offered before — or at such a low starting prices.
Bidding starts at $0.99 (items valued <$1,000) or $99.99 (items valued ≥$1,000) and all items are available as auctions with free shipping and no reserve.
We’re not calling them “cheesy” out of spite — these retro bikini panties include wedges of cheese in the cats and mice circle of life. Set on a backdrop of bright yellow with mod orange polka dots no less.
Mainly that old toy cash register was used to ring up sales in the basement bar, where my sister and I played barmaid and waitress, serving my parents corny cocktails like screwdrivers — an actual screwdriver in an empty glass, har har har — and equally moronic meals, made of puns and odd found basement things.
By then, the box had long been gone, but it was still awesome!
And I totally want to call my sister and reminisce… Maybe over a couple of screwdrivers.
