You Might be a Child of the 80’s If…
Today is my birthday…the big 3-2. In honor of being a baby of the ’80s, I’ve compiled a most excellent, tubular, and radical list of things children of the ’80s will appreciate. Sit back, pop open a can of Tab or Crystal Clear Pepsi, and take a little stroll down memory lane.
You just might be a child of the 80’s if…..
you wanted to be her…
You probably had a crush on her brother…
or maybe on this guy….
and you probably wanted to live next door to him.
You ripped their pictures from the pages of this,
It made your day when your Mom put one of these in your lunchbox:
You knew Mariah back when she wore flannel,
and you just might have tried to wear your pants backwards.
You spent your Friday nights playing
You crossed your fingers and hoped for the M (or at least the H),
You used this to watch your movies,
printed out cards and pictures on your Dot Matrix printer,
chased Carmen Sandiego, traveled the Oregon Trail, and munched numbers in computer lab at school,
and recorded a jingle or little song to be your family’s outgoing message on one of these.
You probably stayed up late on Thursday nights to watch The Cosby Show,
and curled up to watch them using your Pillow Person. (So much better than Pillow Pets!)
You know EVERY word to The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song,
that Goonies never say die,
You can’t hear the words “Duck Tales” without immediately singing “Woohoo,”
remember what it’s like to sit and anxiously wait to log onto the internet,
had one of these around your neck,
You know that Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Raphael were more than painters (they’re heroes in a half-shell!),
and know that strange things are afoot at the Circle K.
You were totally jealous of the kid that had one of these,
You brought your lunch to school in a hard plastic lunchbox with matching thermos,
waited to tape your favorite song off the radio,
and know that being a baby of the ’80s is like, totally righteous!Pin It
