Child of the 80's

If you can identify with at least half of this list then you, my friend, are a "Child of the 80's".

  • Partying "like it's 1999" seemed SO far away.

  • You can sing the McDonald's Big Mac, Filet-O-Fish, Quarter Pounder, French Fry song while jump roping.

  • You ever wore fluorescent, neon clothing.

  • You know that another name for a keyboard is a "Synthesizer".

  • You know who Fat Albert is.

  • You thought that Transformers were more than meets the eye.

  • You HAD to have your MTV.

  • You watched Purple Rain over and over again.

  • You actually thought "Dirty Dancing" was a REALLY good movie.

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

  • You own any cassettes.

  • Poltergeist freaked you out.

  • You know what leg warmers are and probably had a pair.

  • You had Wonder Woman or Superman underoos.

  • You still occasionally hum a Debbie Gibson tune.

  • You remember when they actually played videos on MTV.

  • You see teenagers today wearing the same clothes you wore at that age and they still look bad.

  • You can remember a time when "going out for coffee" DIDN'T involve 19,000 selections to choose from.

  • You're starting to realize that getting carded while buying alcohol is a good thing.

  • You know who shot J.R.

  • You had ringside seats for Luke and Laura's wedding on General Hospital.

  • The phrase, "Where's the beef?" still doubles you over with laughter.

  • Finally, this rings a bell: "...and my name is Charlie. They work for me."
