Apparently people are taking to social media to post memories of their youth in 5 words. Some examples are:
'Trolls meant something totally different.'
'I had a Blockbuster membership.'
Mine would be :
'Attached to my Perdio transistor radio.'
What about you?

Oops! That was 6 words - omit the word 'Perdio'.
