This was posted on our local Yahoo group. It's way too fun not to share with all of you. I don't plead guilty to all of them, but far too many for comfort.

IF YOU WERE A LITTLE GIRL IN THE 70'S/80's......

You had that Fisher Price Doctor's Kit with a stethoscope that actually worked.

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'.

People sometimes thought you were a boy.

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.

You owned 'Klick-Klacks' and smacked yourself in the face more than once!

Your Holly Hobbie sleeping bag was your most prized possession.

You wore a poncho, gauchos, and knickers.

You begged Santa for the electronic game, Simon.

You had the Donnie and Marie dolls with those pink and purple satiny shredded
outfits, or the sunshine family

You spent hours in your backyard on your metal swing set with the trapeze. The
swing set tipped over at least once.

You had homemade ribbon barrettes in every imaginable color. (Oh yeah!)

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.

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.

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.

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 often asked your Magic-8 ball the question: 'Who will I marry:
Shaun Cassidy, Leif Garrett, or David Cassidy?'

You completely wore out your Grease, Saturday Night Fever, and Fame soundtrack
record album.

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.

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.

PASS THIS ON TO ALL OF YOUR 30 OR 40-even 50 SOMETHING GIRLFRIENDS.
IT WILL MAKE THEM SMILE TOO!!!
