Looking at old photo albums makes me think that kids were way cooler back in the day. We built majestic snow castles in our backyards, climbed trees, wore fashionable sunglasses and had crazy haircuts. I think it's safe to say that most of us were about a hundred times cooler than we are now.

There is a similar picture of me somewhere. I ride a tricycle or a bike with training wheels and I have a lollipop in my mouth so it looks like I am smoking a cigarette. My brother always shows it to other people and tell it is a picture of his 'juvenile criminal sister'. :D
