It’s official – I’m older than dirt

Last night my friend Ayelet and I were coming up with things that made us feel old.  Especially things that younger people say…

Later I recalled taking a quiz once about things you can remember that show your age…took a little digging, but here it is:

Older Than Dirt Quiz

     Count all the ones that you remember- not the ones you were told about!

    • Blackjack chewing gum
    • Wax Coke-shaped bottles with colored sugar water
    • Candy cigarettes
    • Soda pop machines that dispensed bottles
    • Coffee shops with tableside jukeboxes
    • Home milk delivery in glass bottles with cardboard stoppers
    • Party lines
    • Newsreels before the movie
    • P.F. Flyers
    • Butch wax
    • Telephone numbers with a word prefix (Olive – 6933)
    • Peashooters
    • Howdy Doody
    • 45 RPM records
    • S&H Green Stamps
    • Hi-fi’s
    • Metal ice trays with lever
    • Mimeograph paper
    • Blue flashbulb
    • Packards
    • Roller skate keys
    • Cork popguns
    • Drive-ins
    • Studebakers
    • Wash tub wringers
    • Using hand signals for cars without turn signals
    • Pant leg clips for bicycles without chain guards



If you remembered 0-5 = You’re still young

If you remembered 6-10 = You are getting older

If you remembered 11-15 = Don’t tell your age

If you remembered 16-25 = You’re older than dirt!

               (My score was 22, by the way….how did you do?)
