You know you grew up in the 80's if...

o You've ever ended a sentence with the word "psyche."

o You watched the Pound Puppies.

o You can sing the rap to the "Fresh Prince of Belair " ...and can do the "Carlton" dance.

o If you ever watched "Fraggle Rock."

o You had plastic streamers on your bicycle's handle bars

o You think that was when it was actually worth getting up early on a Saturday to watch cartoons.

o You saw the original "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" on the big screen... and still know the turtles names.

o You got super-excited when it was Oregon Trail day in computer class at school.

o You know the profound meaning of "Wax on, wax off."

o You ever wore fluorescent clothing. (some of us... head-to-toe)

o You have ever pondered why Smurfette was the only female smurf.

o You still get the urge to say "not" after every sentence.

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

o You remember "I've fallen and I can't get up" and "Where's the beef?"

o You ever got seriously injured on a Slip and Slide.

o You've gone through reading all of this while nodding your head in agreement.

o "Don't worry, be happy."

o You remember boom boxes. and walking around with one on your shoulder like you were all that.

o You remember watching both "Gremlins" movies.

o You remember Alf, the lil furry brown alien from Melmac.

o You used the term "Way" and "No Way" on a regular basis.

o You still sing "We are the World"

Hat tip to my 101QFL morning show host, Darren Marlar!

I really grew UP in the 70's, but I remember many of these things so well. It was a fun read.
