I Really Thought This Would Be a Bigger Part of My Life

What did you grow up believing would be a consistent presence in your adult life? Quicksand? Dinner parties? The Bermuda Triangle? Movies, TV, and certain bubble bath ads definitely led us astray when it came to the realities of adult life.

What did adulthood mean to you when you were growing up? Staying up late? Doing algebra every day? Stopping, dropping, and rolling at least once a week? We asked our listeners what they thought would come in handy or plague them daily when they grew up.

Amy and Margaret discuss:

  • "Oops! All Berries" Cap'n Crunch cereal
  • Chunky statement pieces
  • How to get the upper hand in "Jeopardy"
