    Thumbs up REMEMBER WHEN .... lunch money edition

    I was just chatting with some friends from my prep school and we were remembering how much it costed to buy lunch and what we could get for $1.00

    in 1980 $1.00 got me either a jelly donut/ banana chips / a patty and a box juice at break

    after school we could get chicken and roll / pizza and a drink for $1.50

    did you guys have kisco or King Kong ... (the jumbo kiscos) back in your islands.

    what did you have for lunch back in the day?

    i had no business buying lunch in 1980...but in 1990 $1 would only get me a chocolate chip cookie and a carton of milk.

    in 2005, $1 gets me four somosas! if you buy two juices, we could split them and share...
