I HEART Campus Queen


I eagerly started reading the post "The 10 Worst Lunch Boxes Ever" from The Best Article Every Day. Sounds like a fun read, right? But then to my horror, I saw my lunchbox -- MY LUNCHBOX -- as part of item number 6. Here's what they say about Campus Queen (and the Pro Sports lunchbox they include with it):

What they say: “My mom has no clue what I actually like, but thinks that this looks like a generic idea of what I might enjoy based on clich├ęd gender roles and utilizing an early crude form of clip art.”

WHAT?!?! How dare they??? I begged my parents for a Campus Queen lunchbox. The girl had yellow hair just like me! She was the epitome of cool to my second grade mind. And the lunchbox had a GAME with it too!

Lucky me -- I DID have a Campus Queen lunchbox. And I still have it, proudly displayed in my laundry room, along with my first teddy bear and my lovely ballerina jewelry/music box.

You'll always be my Campus Queen Baby.

The irony of that, is the way it's been worded in a third person perspective, as if a small child is writing it, then it's been done a way a small child would never say it.

I think who ever wrote that, doesn't quite understand the concept of sarcasm, me thinks :-s.

Take care and best wishes.

That was my favorite lunch box, too! I loved that it came with game pieces. I think that was the highlight of being in third grade. :)

You still have your lunch box? I wish I had mine (Partridge Family). Campus Queen - too cute!
