    28.) You carried your lunch to school in a Gremlins, ET, Dukes of Hazzard, Knight Rider, Strawberry Shortcake or A-Team lunch box.

    29.) You have ever pondered why Smurfette was the ONLY female Smurf.

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

    31.) You wore biker shorts underneath a short skirt and felt stylish.

    32.) You wore your Izod shirt with the collar up.

    33.) You had a Swatch Watch with the Swatch Guard.

    34.) Your Legos collection started with the free sets in a Happy Meal.

    35.) You remember when Happy Meals came in a box, not a paper bag.

    36.) You remember when Saturday Night Live was funny.

    37.) You had Wonder Woman or Superman UndeRoos.

    38.) You know what a "Push Up Pop" is.

    39.) You had to come in the house when the street lights came on.

    40.) You had to change into play clothes after school.

    41.) You owned, or knew somebody with a Commodore 64. (I still have TWO!)

    43.) You recorded songs off the radio with your boom box.

    44.) You wish you had a light saber.

    45.) Somehow you still know all the words to songs played on VH1. (VH1 does suddenly seem cool...so do all of those "adult contemporary" radio stations)

    55.) You know where "I want my two dollars" came from.

    56.) You still cannot go in to the water because of that damn movie Jaws.

    57.) El Debarge's "Get A Beat To The Rhythm Of The Night" plagued the radio every hour.

    58.) You remember life before minivans and SUVs.

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

    And the song "Bomb, bomb, bomb... bomb, bomb Iran" was SO much better than the original "Barabara Ann".
