You're a Child of the 80's If...

You skipped school on the day Luke and Laura got married on General Hospital.

You tried a can of clear Pepsi but hated it like everyone else did.

You tried to convince your Dad to fit a strip of red lights on the front of his Capri so it looked like KITT.

You used to hold in your head the thought that all those gold chains on Mr. T actually looked kinda cool and the thought that Mr. T made millions seemed rational to you at the time.

You used to own a Snoopy Sno Cone Machine.

You wanted to be on Star Search.

You wanted to have an alien like Alf living in your house.

You watched Mary Lou Retton win the gold.

You were only cool if you hung out at the Roller Rink and actually knew how to skate.

You were sad when the "Where's the Beef" lady died.

You wore tights under shorts and felt stylish.

Your all time favorite movie was Footloose and you actually thought that Kevin Bacon was HOT in it!!!

Your best friend had a soda stream at home and you were jealous.

Your best party dress was either a ra-ra or puff-ball skirt.

Your dream car was either: the A-team van, KITT or The General Lee.

Your first computer was a Commodore 64 or an Atari 800.

Your first date took you to the roller rink and you held hands for "Couples Only" skate.

Your first Walkman weighed about as much as a brick.

Your hair defied gravity.

Your hair, at some point in time in the 80's, became something which can only be described by the phrase "I was experimenting."

Your name is Jennifer or Jason.

You're starting to believe that maybe 30 isn't so old after all, and it's those people over 40 you have to look out for.

You know, by heart, the words to any "Weird" Al Yankovic song.

You owned a Jordache anything, or you remember when Jordache jeans were cool.

You remember any or all of the following: Echo & the Bunnymen, Cutting Crew, Scritti Politti, or Orchestral Maneuvers in the Dark.

You remember Dirk Benedict as Starbuck long before he played Face.

You remember the first time "Space: Above and Beyond" aired it was called "Battlestar Galactica"

You remember the original version of Windows: Macintosh.

You remember when ATARI was a state of the art video game system

You remember when cellular phones weighed 15 lbs. and had to be carried over your shoulder.

You remember when McDonald’s served their burgers in styrofoam boxes.

You remember when Saturday Night Live was funny.

You remember when the A-Ha video was the pinnacle of modern technology, and you can still sing all the words.

You sat on your back porch, playing with your "My Little Pony" , "Rainbow Brite" , and "Strawberry Shortcake" dolls
