Twenty-Something Tuesday: A Throwback to Childhood

Just as Peter Pan flew back to Neverland so he would never have to grow-up, we too occasionally have those moments where we wish we could return to simpler times. The past few weeks we’ve looked at what we’re too old and too young for, and now we’re feeling a bit nostalgic for when we didn’t have to worry about aging at all. So today, we’re discussing what we miss most in our 20s from our childhood. Apologies if we exceed 20, we’re particularly soppy about your lost youth.

    Though perhaps not this kind…
