Welcome back to Case of the Mondays, where you tell Editor-at-Large, Jessie Blaeser, how and where to spend her Monday. Although there isn't much choice on the "where" part at the moment (Jessie is currently social-distancing in her childhood home in Atlanta), there's still plenty to debate over how to spend the perfect, '90s-kid day. Last week, you helped Jessie decide how to spend her birthday in self-quarantine. Now, help her choose the ultimate nostalgic activities to pass the hours. Join the reminiscing on the good ole' days—where breakfast cereals were plenty and pandemics were few—by voting below!
The easiest way to pretend to be a kid again is flip the channel back to Disney or Nickelodeon. Since adulthood hardly seems real anyway, you could just as easily be watching these cartoons on a "Monday morning before school" or on a Friday night. At this point, what's the difference? Which cartoon do you love more?
Pop-up waffle, pop-up strudel, "pop-up" tart—whatever your fancy, a toaster in the '90s could provide it.
Either way, you're moving in some capacity!
Ah, life on the go. Running out the door to go to school or work seems like a distant memory. Nevertheless, the convenience of Go-Gurt must be appreciated. Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies, on the other hand, are a delicacy for the ages. If you were coming off the bus after school, which would you grab?
Judy Blume gave us advice on everything from puberty to bullies. But the "Eragon" series offers dragon eggs, evil kings and elves, and it's hard to contend with that. Which stories are you reading before bed?
