[rebelmouse-image 18357519 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

_Memories and nostalgia are a powerful part of life. The smallest reminder can bring us all back to a time when everything felt simple. It could be anything from a song to a scent or an off the cuff remark that makes a relish a memory that awakens that inner child within us all. The person who remembers the things that made us feel whole. _

Redditor _\musseorgsky _asked the inhabitants of Reddit ****What is one thing that always brings out the inner kid in you? _Don't pretend that some of these suggestions don't bring your inner adolescent down memory lane. _

Swings. It doesn't matter where I am or who I'm with, if I see swings, you can bet your butt my butt will be on that seat and in the air before you can say 'lickety-split.'

WE ALL NEED A SNOW DAY!

[rebelmouse-image 18979546 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

This might sounds weird, but being near kids. I was a camp counselor for a long time, and I kinda revert back to that more silly more outgoing persona when I'm interacting with children.

Also this is kinda dumb, but whenever it snows a lot during the night, in the back of my mind I think it might be a snow day. I mean, I'm an adult with office job but the possibility still gives a warm feeling.

KERMIT 2020!!

Christmas makes me so giddy, it also makes my 75 year old grandmother giddy too, we're like two toddlers on christmas, where as everyone else is sick of us.

A WINTER WONDERLAND...

[rebelmouse-image 18979551 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Snow!

I made the worst "igloo" well into my twenties and gleefully played outside while my girlfriend (at the time) repeatedly told me it was dumb.

I can't not kick a pile of snow or prance through it when it's ankle deep or deeper.

Sometimes I'll just go throw myself down in it. I hate winter but playing in the snow is fun.

ALL AROUND THE WORLD...

[rebelmouse-image 18979560 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Rollercoasters, as long as they're long and exciting, I can't help but get giddy over rollercoasters.

You're probably going to be beat over the head with this as you read this charming article but bedbugs are a nightmare and they are always lurking (in the back of my mind) when I think about purchasing some items secondhand.

Some years ago, a relative brought in a stuffed animal and some other items off the street. Within days we had a bedbug issue.

It was thankfully resolved very quickly–good thing it was caught so early–but let's just say I dealt with phantom itch for a while.

Nooo thank you.

It can feel like the world is out to get you, especially when people die in such easily avoidable ways.

This isn't to make light of tragic accidents, or people suffering from long term illnesses, but when you look at the staggering amount of gun deaths in the country, or the number of people still losing loved ones to lung cancer after years of smoking, it becomes apparent maybe some people don't want to avoid it at all.

When it seemingly would be so easy to step to the side.

Betty White could have done it.

According to Norse mythology ONLY Thor could lift it because ONLY he was strong enough—and he needed a magical belt and magic gauntlets on top of his already-god-level-super strength.

Marvel went a different route and decided that an ability to lift Thor's hammer would be based on worth instead.
