You have to love the "80's"

You Know You Grew Up In the 80's IF:

You've ever ended a sentence with the word SIKE.

You can sing the rap to the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and can do the Carlton.

It was actually worth getting up early on a Saturday to watch cartoons.

You wore a ponytail on the side of your head.

You made your mom buy one of those clips that would hold your shirt in a knot on the side .

You wore stonewashed Jordache jean jackets and were proud of it.

You know the profound meaning of ' WAX ON , WAX OFF'

You wanted to be a Goonie.

You can remember what Michael Jackson looked like before his nose fell off, his cheeks shifted and his nationality became questionable.
You have ever pondered why Smurfette was the only female smurf.

You remember the CRAZE, then the BANNING of slap bracelets.

You still get the urge to say 'NOT' after every sentence.

You thought your childhood friends would never leave because you exchanged handmade friendship bracelets.

You ever owned a pair of Jelly-Shoes.

After you saw Pee-Wee's Big Adventure you kept saying 'I know you are, but what am I?'

You remember 'I've fallen and I can't get up'

You remember going to the skating rink before there were inline skates.

You're still singing shot through the heart in your head, aren't you!
Your hair looked like this for at least 1 school picture!

Enjoy!!! Happy Monday!

What a fun post. I grew up way before the 80's, but I do remember these things (hey I was older, not dead). And I remember Michael Jackson when he was a cute little 6 year old singing with his brothers, first concert I ever went to! Kathy
