Holiday Hack: Childhood Bedroom Bingo
November 28, 2017
No trip back home for the holidays is complete without a sleepover in your childhood bedroom. The place where you became who you are today, through a lot of trial and error you never want to talk about. While revisiting your old, angsty solace in your parents’ house, take a moment to see how many of these relics from your tweens and teens you can stamp off your imaginary bingo card.
Was it a Rated R movie? A dirty magazine? A hamster? We hope it wasn’t a hamster.
It probably doesn’t say, “Don’t let the bastards get you down,” but the angst level is still off the charts.
3.) A poster you definitely practiced kissing on.
Because kissing a poster of Orlando Bloom is just like kissing the real Orlando Bloom.
4.) An unfinished novel about your first crush.
It’s probably best that it’s unfinished.
5.) Remnants of a religion you no longer practice.
Remember when binge watching meant swapping out the DVD after every fourth episodes. Talk about the stone ages. Bonus points if all the DVDs are still in the box.
Face it, it’s never going to be worth a fortune.
This is like the freebie in the center of the Bingo card. It doesn’t even have to be because of a certain item. It’s just there… always there…
Just stick your head out the window and try to remember the days before you could just exit the front door at any hour like a normal person. Did you have to climb off the roof? Or did you have a ladder like Joey Potter?
RIP Goldie. Gone too soon.
Because no one saw Spotify coming.
No matter whose it is, it probably says Hollister on the front. Is it too late to give it back?
Just because you haven’t found them doesn’t mean they aren’t there.
Face it, the year of Guitar Hero was one of the best times in all our lives.
Don’t even try to separate them. They’ve bonded.
Because your teenage self just had to take advantage of the buy one get five for 1 cent deal on graphic tees from Wet Seal. (Rip Delia’s)
Go ahead, make a call and relive the horror when one of your parents picks up a phone from anywhere else in the house.
Because throwing away that homecoming shirt from 2005 would be some next level sacrilege
Bonus points if he wrote you a song. Extra bonus points if you can read the whole thing without throwing up.
If you’re honest, it was your first love. Not the dude who wrote you that love letter.
Because even though there is absolutely no way you’d ever want to be a teenager again, it’s good to be home.
