I LOVED THESE. Those silly rubber "Poppers" that you'd flip inside out, place on a table, and watch it scare the crap out of you when it finally popped and righted itself. Admit it, you flinched every single time.
and I think everyone we knew then had the list of numbers posted on the wall by the phone. We had an extra long cord that we could take around the corner and into a small bathroom to shut the door for more privacy.
