I see it’s an update.


Airline hostess is a really demanding field. If it doesn’t work out, programming should be a common second choice, as it is a job well suited to women.


I remember the ads for Mystery Date. Possibly I even knew someone who had it, but it is hard to be certain. The line between TV and reality was blurrier in those days.


Oh lordy. I could hear the music for “Mystery Date” in my head as soon as I saw the photo. The krebs cycle is completely gone, but an ad for a horrible game from the 60s I kept.


We have a modern version of Mall Madness. It’s actually pretty fun – it has boys and girls both in it.


My whole family played Mall Madness (dad, mom and two girls). We enjoyed making fun of the computer voice the most! I guess for some it could be seen as a pro-consumption game, but honestly, I played it with productivity in mind!

There is actually some great strategy in there if you can get past the fact that it is done in a mall.
