194 Days ’til 40: Disappointing Childhood Desires

 

Okay, I want to know – how many of you out there really wanted sea monkeys when you were little?  I read Archie comic books and I LOVED the advertisements in them.  I wanted my own sea monkey family – you know the one, right?  Where mom wears lipstick and there is a dad and two sea monkey kids and we can watch them grow up and do all the sorts of sea monkey things they do, like sit at a breakfast table (the photo shows them doing that!)
