Loving those lunch boxes
As a kid growing up and going to school in the 1970s and 80s, nothing was more important to me than my lunchbox. Aside from being a necessary transport for the lunches my mother packed for me, my lunchbox was also an unfettered expression of my personality. And the same can be said for my friends. Every day, we would meet during lunch to eat and would admire the lunch boxes everyone brought. If one caught our eye, then our parents would hear about it later that night.
Correction: Our parents would hear about it a lot that night. And eventually, we would wear them down so much that we soon became the proud owners of the lunch boxes we admired most.
It was quite a racket.
Earlier today, I was trying to remember some of my favorite lunch boxes from the past. Anything with Star Wars was great, but I fondly recall the Six Million Dollar Man, the Justice League and a host of others. I had some great ones, but there were even more that I didn’t have. Thanks to the internet, I have managed to find some of my favorites and hope you enjoy this quick trip down Memory Lane.
