Life is so much simpler when you're a kid; you don't have to worry about bills, your body isn't failing on you in every possible way, and your food is always made for you by your parents. It's pretty great.
Thing is though, because we had it so easy, the smallest things would just absolutely ruin our day and turn us into crying messes. Here's just a few things that, in retrospect, probably weren't worth getting upset over.
Waiting for your sibling to die so you could have the freaking controller
When you walked into the school gym and saw the ropes hanging from the ceiling
When your Happy Meal was missing a toy
When these bastards failed at their job and just tore up the paper, or left it a blurry mess
Discovering that the anti-skip feature was a total lie
These next few used to absolutely crush us...
Going to rent the new movie or game you were stoked about, only to find out all the copies were already gone
Getting stuck with a coconut Freezie
When it took literal minutes to connect to the internet
When your parents manage to always trip on your controller cables (just look where you're walking, mom!)
Forgetting your money on Book Fair day
When the batteries died just as you were about to beat your high score
And finally, these mofos only having two possible temperatures; frozen, and molten lava

Those "dumb babies" as Angelica Pickles would say were a lot more clever than they let on, and in their many adventures they inspired us kids to believe that we could do anything. I mean, we don't have to question how or why a baby keeps a screwdriver in his diaper, because the logistics of where he got it or how he keeps it in there without hurting himself is beyond me, but that's not what matters here. What does matter is that these
Halloween was basically the most important time of the year when we were kids. I mean, it's when you get to dress up in a costume that makes you happy and run around your town demanding candy from strangers, what's not to love?While it wasn't quite as hyped up as Christmas was, there was one place that always seemed to know how to do Halloween right: McDonald's. The fast food giant was always good at getting into the spooky spirit, bringing some of the best promotions and events for us to enjoy, and we still remember them to this
Franken Berry, Boo-Berry, and Count Chocula were three of the best cereals to ever come across our grocery store aisles. As children, we would beg our parents to get us some of these marshmallow-filled treats instead of the boring, old, healthier options, and when they actually did it, we were so thrilled. Even though kids loved the cereals, there were actually a couple of different controversies involving the General Mills classics.

Going trick-or-treating when you're a kid is probably one of the most important days of the entire year. When else are you supposed to get a whole bunch of free candy for little to no effort? I mean, I guess there's Easter and Christmas, but you know what, with Halloween you get to wear super fun costumes and pretend to be whatever you want.
