Thinking inside the lunchbox

We have a timely food centerpiece in Life today. It's all about school lunches. My mom fixed great lunches when I was a kid. She knew all the little tricks to keep hot stuff hot, cold stuff cold, and sandwiches from turning to mushwiches. Oh, and I had awesome lunchboxes. Well, that was until I was too "mature" to carry them and brown paper bags became the rule. But my love for lunchboxes (especially cool metal and retro ones) has returned.

What was the best and worst thing you ever took for lunch as a kid? Do you remember the most awesomest lunchbox you ever had?

The best lunchbox that I ever had was an Ed Grimley lunchbox. Who is Ed Grimley you say? Think back to SNL and Martin Short. Ed Grimley was the hyper, nerdy guy with the obsession with Pat Sajak. ("Very decent I must say.")I actually didn't own this until high school, but my friends and I went through a phase where we thought lunchboxes were cool. (I believe that I even used one as a purse for awhile. What was I thinking? Yikes!) As for bad lunches, I think that my mother just packed us the same thing for several years: pb & j, raisins, and a Little Debbie's Star Crunch for dessert. (Btw/ I still have the Ed Grimley lunchbox in my closet.)
