Ahhh, Childhood...thanks Shane...

My commentary will be in Pink....b/c this is WAAAY too close to reality...


You had that Fisher Price Doctor's Kit with a stethoscope that actually worked. Still have it!

You owned a bicycle with a banana seat and a plastic basket with flowers on it. Inheritied my Sister's...

You learned to skate with actual skates (not roller blades) that had metal wheels. - with one skate on & the other off for EXTRA balance...

You thought Gopher from Love Boat was cute (admit it!) -Well, he's a definite sight better from Dr. Bricker! & didn't you just love it when Gopher & Juile were having a "thing"????

You had nightmares after watching Fantasy Island. -Tattoo still scares me, I found a fairy tale theater tape where he is Rumplestilskin, and it is CREEPY!

You had either a "bowl cut" or "pixie", not to mention the "Dorothy Hamill".

People sometimes thought you were a boy. - Had the Dorothy Hamill, NOT a good look for me....

You had rubber boots for rainy days and Moon boots for snowy days.

YEAH! You owned a "Slip-n-Slide", on which you injured yourself on a sprinkler head more than once. -MY MOON BOOTS CHANGED COLORS!!!! no slip-n-slide, we got the garden hose & the sprinkler only...

You owned "Klick-Klacks" and smacked yourself in the face more than once ! _ I was darn good at the klick-klacks! I can still do it, but they don't have them on string!

Your Holly Hobbie sleeping bag was your most prized possession. -No Holly hobbie sleeping bag, But My sister & I had the doll & her friend. We both liked the friend better & fought about who would play her, we considered Holly Hobbie a grime-stone primarily...

You wore a poncho, gauchos, and knickers. - I had an -awesome- crocheted pancho in a odd shade of blue...I think we found it in a garage sale....

You begged Santa for the electronic game, Simon.
Never got it, Dad thought it was a waste of Money I guess...

You had the Donnie and Marie Dolls with those pink and purple satiny shredded outfits, or the Sunshine Family. I didn't, but my friend Mia did. I was Jealous!

You spent hours in your backyard on your metal swing set with the trapeze. The swing set tipped over at least once. - nope, Dad poured concrete down so we wouldn't kill ourselves as children.

You had homemade ribbon barrettes in every imaginable color. (Oh yeah!) .
- My sister had a pair with yellow feathers on the ends and she NEVER let me wear them...*sniff*

You had a pair of Doctor Scholl's sandals (the ones with hard sole & the buckle). You also had a pair of salt-water sandals. -Nope, Mom was SUPER weird about shoes. We got swayed Buster-browns in Day-glo colors...(maybe I exagerated the color part....)

You wanted to be Laura Ingalls Wilder really bad; you wore that Little House on the
Prairie-inspired plaid, ruffle shirt with the high neck in at least one school picture; and you despised Nellie Oleson!

You wanted your first Kiss to be at a Roller Rink!

PONG! ("video tennis" ) was the most remarkable futuristic game you've ever heard of !

Your hairstyle was described as having "wings" or Feathers" and you kept it "pretty" with the comb you kept in your back pocket. When you walked, the "wings" flapped up and down, looked like you were gonna "take off"

You know who Strawberry Shortcake is, as well as her friends, Blueberry Muffin and Huckleberry Pie. I NEVER got any strawberry shortcake & I had to beg until I was blue in the face to get My Little Ponies in 5th grade. I was so deprived from the mainstream marketing....

You carried a Muppets lunch box to school and it was metal, not plastic.

With the thermos inside some were glass inside and broke the first time you dropped them. I think I had this set....

You and your girlfriends would fight over which of the Dukes of Hazzard was your boyfriend. -Actually, my friends and I fought over who could be daisy, or Princess Leia. By the time we got tired of that, we played Charle's Angels instead b/c there were enough girl-parts to go around...

YOU had Star Wars action figures, too! LOVED it!

It was a big event in your household each year when the "Wizard of Oz" would come on TV. Your mom would break out the popcorn and sleeping bags! You better believe it!

You often asked your Magic-8 ball the question: "Who will I marry.

Shaun Cassidy, Leif Garrett, or David Cassidy?" This was more my sister....I was fixated on Paul McCarthney..

You completely wore out your Grease, Saturday Night Fever, and Fame soundtrack record album. I learned how to do the Hustle before I was 5.... bah-bah-bup-ba-da-dah-daaaa

You tried to do lots of arts and crafts, like yarn and Popsicle-stick God's eyes, decoupage, or those weird potholders made on a plastic loom.

You made Shrinky-Dinks and put iron-on kittens on your t-shirts!

You used to tape record songs off the radio by holding your portable tape player up to the speaker. Yes, but more often I would hold the recorder up to tape my mom's beatles albums.

You had subscriptions to Dynamite and Tiger Beat. No

You learned everything you needed to know about girl issues from Judy Blume books. (Are you there God, It's me, Margaret.) I read them, but didn't like many of them...

You thought Olivia Newton John's song "Physical" was about aerobics. (?? its not??)

You wore friendship pins on your tennis shoes, or shoelaces with heart or Rainbow designs. OH YEAH!

You wanted to be a Solid Gold Dancer.
Don't you ?

You drowned yourself in Love's Baby Soft - Which was the first "real" perfume you ever owned. eww!

You glopped your lips in Strawberry Roll-on lip-gloss till it almost dripped off. ack! that stuff was AWFUL!
