I am rolling!!

Eric's sister Danielle had this posted and it is so funny I had to share it. This is not the whole list, I had to cut it down. You Know You Grew Up In the 80's if:

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

Girls wore biker shorts under their skirts and felt stylishly sexy. What was I thinking?

Two words: Hammer Pants Eric has a pair from his younger days and someone else who is his best buddy. I will let you confess in due time.

If you ever watched "Fraggle Rock" We have fragile rock on DVD, true art!

You had plastic streamers on your handle bars... and spokey-dokes or playing cards on your spokes for that incredible sound effect It wasn’t a bike without them

You wore a ponytail on the side of your head. I actually have embarrassing photos showing this, my mom could whip up a sideways ponytail faster than you can say sideways ponytail.

You saw the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on the big screen and still know the turtles names. , Raphael, Leonardo, Michelangelo, & Donatello

You got super-excited when it was Oregon Trail day in computer class at school. I am such a dork, I loved that game. I wonder if you can buy that now, hmmm.

You made your mom buy one of those clips that would hold your shirt in a knot on the side. Once again, there are photos that can be used for blackmail

You played the game "MASH"(Mansion, Apartment, Shelter, House) If I remember correctly it told you the place you would live at, husband, kids, car and it is killing me not knowing the last one…….UUGGGH

You wore stonewashed Jordache jean jackets and were proud of it. I always felt good in my jacket!!!

L.A. Gear....need I say more? Hello! They had the best sneakers!! Mine were purple and white

You wanted to be a Goonie. Who doesn’t?

You even wore fluorescent clothing. (Some of us...head-to-toe) My mother was afraid of me getting run over in the middle of the day. Well that is what she told me…..

You took lunch boxes to school...and traded Garbage Pailkids in the schoolyard. Eric still has his Garbage kids and will not part with them.

You remember the CRAZE, then the BANNING of slap bracelets. Those are still cool

You have owned a pair of Jelly-Shoes. Really!!! What was I thinking?

You have got seriously injured on a Slip and Slide. Those suckers can burn your skin off.

You wore like, EIGHT pairs of socks over tights with high top Reeboks. They had to be a multicolored sock, now I think about it and it was the only way to make a fashion disaster worse

You know what it meant to say "Care Bear Stare!!" yes and you point your belly out to do it

You remember watching Rainbow Bright and & My Little Pony Tales. I still have not forgiven my mother for giving away my rainbow bright collection. I had the bed set, and all the dolls. It still hurts :(

You remember New Kids on the Block when they were cool...and don't even flinch when people refer to them as "NKOTB" Enough said there

You knew all the characters names and their life stories on "Saved By The Bell," The ORIGINAL class. Of course, who didn’t?

You know all the words to Bon Jovi - SHOT THROUGH THE HEART.

You just sang those words to yourself. Yes, I too was singing. It is timeless, how can you not sing it.

You remember when mullets were cool! As Eric puts it, “Business in the front, party in the rear!”

You tight rolled your jeans. Eric actually showed me how he did you do it. One more thing about my husband I did not know about

You owned a banana clip. I had more than one and they were different colors.

You're still singing shot through the heart in your head, aren't you! YUP!
