I was looking for a song in an old magazine from 1950, when I came across a craft project in the magazine. The article said to “paste” something. “Pasting” was what we used to call gluing. It was a thick white glue that came in a plastic jar like the one below. You’d use a stick to glue something. Nowadays, most kids use glue that comes out of a thin hole from a bottle. (My kids never heard of paste.)
The point here is that I haven’t used or seen paste since elementary school! When I read the word, I could see it and smell it once again. These are the types of memories I treasure as an adult. They bring back the feeling of being a young kid.
What reminds you of being a kid?
