Oh, oh, domino

A photo of one of my favorite pastimes as an adolescent. I set this up on our dining room floor in Freehold.

The show "That's Incredible!" made these domino setups popular. Note: That's also the show that made the phrase "Don't try this at home" popular. But I tried this at home. It didn't involve blowing anything up. Actually, there was one holiday season when two different game companies were selling colored domino sets to capitalize on the craze. I got the Incredible Domino Rally for Hannukah. My friend Missy got the other one. I forget what it was called, but her parents got it for her because it had 600 dominoes...little did they realize that the dominoes in that set were teeny-tiny. What a ripoff!
