Who would have thought you'd miss the 80's and 90's so much.

Who would have thought you'd miss the 80's and 90's so much.

Scrapes & bruises were kissed & made better.It was a big deal to finally be tall enough to ride the 'big people' rides at the fair.When playing Nintendo was the hardest thing ever.When Ninja Turtles ruled the world.When Lisa Frank was the raddest thing ever.When a candy bar at the grocery store was the highlight of your day.When coupons collected all year could get you a prize in your class auction.When the only thing you cried over was your mom being late to pick you up.When stress was addition and subtraction.When friendships were as complicated as who's house to sleep over.When shaving cream was just meant for play.When a first kiss only lead to cooties.When Valentines Day meant cards for all.When birthdays were a class event.When a friend moving away was the saddest day of your life.

Before Facebook and Myspace.Before the internet & text messaging.Before Sidekicks & iPods.Before MIKE JONESSSBefore PlayStation2 or X-BOX....Before the 5 hours of homework you put off every night.WHEN LIGHT UP SNEAKERS WERE KOOLWhen you rented VHS tapes, not DVDs.When gas was $0.95 a gallon & Caller ID was a new thing.When we recorded stuff on VCRs & paid $3.50 for a movie.When we called the radio station to request songs to hear off our walkmans.When 2Pac and Biggie where alive.When the Chicago Bulls were the best team ever.Way back.....Tag.Hide-n-Go Seek at dusk.Red Light, Green Light.Heads Up 7 Up.Playing kickball & dodgeball until your porch light came on.skip it.Chinese Jump ropeHopscotch.Slip-n-Slides.Tree Houses.Hula Hoops.Reading R.L. Stine's Goose Bumps.The annoying Nano Pets & Furbies.Running through the sprinklers.Crying when Mufasa died in the Lion King.Happy Meals where you chose a Barbie or a Hot Wheels car.Getting the privelage to sit in the front seat of the car.Drinking Sqeeze It "Squeeze The Fun Out Of It."But wait....Watching Saturday Morning Cartoons in your PJ's stillwrapped up in your Garfield comforter.Hey Arnold, Doug, Rugrats.The original Power RangersOr what about....The Secret Life of Alex Mac.The GnomesGummi BearsRen & Stimpy.Double Dare.Rocko's Modern Life.AAAHH!! REAL MONSTERS.Wild & Crazy Kids.Clarissa Explains it All.Salute Your Shorts.Are You Afraid of the Dark?The original cast members of All That.Kenan & Kel.The Magic School Bus.Flash Forward.Pete and Pete.Legends of the Hidden Temple.Hey Dude.Dinosaurs.Pinky and the Brain.Blossom.Hangin' With Mr. Copper.Wishbone.Bill-Nye the Science Guy.Kablamm.Who could forget Snick? & Nick @ Nite with Bewitched, I Dream of Jeanie, The Facts of Life, & I Love Lucy.Where everyone wanted to be in love after watching TheWonder Years.Or Nick Jr. with Face.Gulah-Gulah Island.Little Bear.Under the Umbrella Tree.Eureka's Castle.The Busy World of Richard Scary.The Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.Kool-Aid was the drink of choice.Wearing your new shoes on the first day of school.Class field trips.When Christmas was the most exciting time of year.When $5 seemed like a million, & another dollar a miracle.When you begged to go to McDonalds for dinner everyday.When Toys 'R' Us overuled the mall.Go back to the time when.....Decisions were made by going 'eeny-meeny-miney-moe'.Mistakes were corrected by simply exclaiming 'do over!''Race issue' ment arguing about who ran the fastest.Money issues were handled by whoever was banker in 'Monopoly'.It wasn't odd to have two or three 'best' friends.Being old referred to anyone over 20.A chance to skate as a couple at the local roller rink was like winning the lottery. Who would have thought you'd miss the 80's and 90's so much.
