L'eggs:

Mom used to get these. I don't think they sell them anymore. She used to give me the eggs to play with, but really how many things can you do with a plastic egg.. I remember an episode of The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Rhoda was having a bad day, then she said "... and to top it all off, I bought a pair of pantyhose and the egg was empty"...

The coolest ones were the ones that were kind of 'chromed'. But still what do you do with a chromed egg.

teri said...

they still sell the pantyhose, and I think the eggs are still available.

I was still buying them a few years ago when I was still working. They just don't come in the egg anymore.

When I was about the age in my profile pic, I was in the living room with mom as she was folding the laundry that just came out of the dryer, and when I saw how tiny those pantyhose were, I laughed uncontrollably... I don't know why, but I found it incredibly hillarious for some reason..

They still make the pantyhose, but not the egg here in the US. ( they haven't since I graduated HS in '91) I remember my friends and I used to put the eggs in our shirts, to look like we were, well, "mature".

My mom did the same as Joe's. We had a bunch of those eggs floating around the toy box.

joe said...

Jayne: Um, you still don't do that, do you??? That's okay, we're all friends here. We'll still support you..

Blueroc: and did you ever use those eggs for anything?? Like jayne did?? Or maybe still does???

blueroc85 said...

No...I did not use the eggs as Jayne did. I don't remember what I did with them exactly, but I know it wasn't that....never needed any help in that dept ;)

joe said...
