Hot Slut Of The Day!

Skip-It, the hula hoop for your ankle that tripped up kids all through the 80s and 90s.

Skip-It looked like an 80s plastic neon version of a prison-style ball and chain, and it was a children’s torture device that brought hours upon hours of simple entertainment. I tried to conquer Skip-It twice, but quit that shit when I almost left half of my face on the asphalt. It was much more fun to sit on the curb and watch other kids almost eat cement and break their ankles. You could tell who the Skip-It masters were, because the skin on their ankle was also chaffed. Skip-Its should’ve come with anti-chafing cream and condom socks. But the best part of a Skip-It was the ball counter. You didn’t even have to know how to count to use it!

Wikipedia says Skip-It was buried in 2009, but I’ll remember it forever thanks to its theme song. The Skip-It song is like musical herpes. Every now and again, it will break out in my brain and never leave:

Skiiiiip it, Skiiiiiiip it… Shit, it’s never leaving.
