“I did. We went on this field trip to this marble place … and I bought a bunch of them. I would draw little circles in the dirt and play with them.”

“Yes, I did. It was a lot of fun and everybody in my class brought marbles to school.”

No, but I'm sure Michaelangelo's David did.

No, they told me it would make me go blind. (Well, I quit after I got glasses.)

I lost my marbles. Now I'm crazy. But, I still have the ones from my childhood. Some nice cat's eyes and a steely.

Most on these forums never ever had any.

All the neighborhood kids played with Marbles. They'd go over to his house after school and on the weekends. I told them not to go, but they wouldn't listen to me. The cops came and took Marbles away one day. Never did find out what happened to him.
