12 Photos That Will Send You Back To The Days You Stayed Home Sick From School



Being sick is never a good thing. Or is it?

We can all recall the good ‘ol days when being sick meant being able to stay home from school. Whether we were being watched by a relative or even able to stay at home by ourselves as we became older, being stuck at home wasn’t always the worst thing that could happen.

Most of us spent our days watching TV and movies, playing video games and with other toys, and simply using our imagination. The food wasn’t half-bad either.

Here is a list of some of the things you might remember back when you were kept home from school. Let the good times roll.

When your parents did what they could to put a smile on your face before heading out to work… Particularly when they made you eat things you didn’t like because it would make you “feel better.” Take Cream of Wheat, for example

Need we say more? Getting to chill in your bed with a game glued to your face was all any of us wanted. Sick days allowed us this privilege. Game Boy always delivered.

Tomato soup was a staple for sick kids. Though, I’ll never understand why. It was gross! It’ll always be chicken noodle for me.

This side to tomato soup, however, deserves a round of applause. It’s the true champion when it came to sick meals at home. Just look at that cheesy goodness.

When your mom calls home to check on you and asks if you want her to pick up anything on her way home… “Grab me a pack of cigs, would ya doll?”Yep, candy cigarettes were a thing.
