The Friday Five

When I was a kid:

1. A printer was a person who owned a shop where books, pamphlets, invitations, etc were reproduced onto paper. The printer set metal type (letters) into the press to print the documents.

2. Aids were people that helped the teacher in a classroom. Unless you went to parochial school like I did. The nun's teaching aid was a ruler or a yard stick.

3. A mouse was vermin and to be eeeked at if you saw one.

4. An apple was a piece of fruit. A McIntosh  was a tart apple good for baking or eating.

5. Coke was a carbonated, soft drink. If you wanted to get a buzz from Coke, you mixed it with rum.

Can you add to my list?
