It got us thinking what the most exciting things that happened to you when you were growing up…
Someone you knew was on Winning Streak or Where in the World
There was a dog in the school yard
You got through to Longwave Radio Atlantic 252 and they played your request
The carnival came to town, and you had a fiver to spend
You got something in the post
The teacher pushed the telly on wheels into the classroom
You sent a letter complaining about some sweets and the company sent you some free sweets
This wasn’t an urban myth you know? It actually happened.
You managed to collect an entire set of Panini stickers
You had unlimited access to a bouncy castle
