If You Were A Little Girl In The 70's (or early 80's)...
-You owned a bicycle with a banana seat and a plastic basket with flowers on it.
-You learned to skate with actual skates (not roller blades) that had metal wheels.
-You thought Gopher from Love Boat was cute (admit it!)
-You had nightmares after watching Fantasy Island.
-You had either a "bowl cut" or "pixie," not to mention the "Dorothy Hamill".
-You owned a "Slip-n-Slide", on which you injured yourself on a sprinkler head more than once.
-You begged Santa/Hannukah Harry for the electronic game, Simon.
-You had a pair of Doctor Scholl's sandals (the ones with hard sole & the buckle).
-You wanted to be Laura Ingalls Wilder really bad; and you despised Nellie Olson!
-PONG! was the most remarkable futuristic game you've ever heard of!
-You know who Strawberry Shortcake is, as well as her friends, Blueberry Muffin & Huckleberry Pie. -You carried a Muppets lunch box to school and it was metal, not plastic.
-You and your girlfriends would fight over which of the Dukes of Hazzard was your boyfriend.
-YOU had Star Wars action figures, too!
-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 did lots of arts and crafts, like yarn and Popsicle-stick G-d'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 had subscriptions to Dynamite and Tiger Beat.
-You learned everything you needed to know about girl issues from Judy Blume books. (Are you there God, It's me, Margaret.)
-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.
-You wanted to be a Solid Gold dancer.
-You drowned yourself in Love's Baby Soft - which was the first "real" perfume you ever owned.
-You glopped your lips in Strawberry Roll-on lip-gloss till it almost dripped off.
