When I started reading this book I thought that  probably couldn’t identify with it since I grew up in a conservative menno home.  Anyway, I was really surprised  with how many things I identified with.  And I think maybe, maybe, I understand other generations a tiny bit better.  I’m a child of the 80’s and 90’s.  Ooo the memories…

You might be a child of the 80’s & 90’s if:

* You’ve heard of 8 track tapes but have never seen any

* When asked your favorite music you say, “anything except _________” (fill in blank)

* You wore a swatch watch

* You wore your stone-washed jacket…. with the collar up

* You taught your mother what a virus is

* Super soakers were also innovative technology

* You understand why people go to a coffee shop to socialize and drink over-priced, trendy coffee beverages

* Your dream outfit as a child was oversized top (with knot at hip), leggings, neon shoes, and 12 plastic bracelets

* When you see pics of MaryKate & Ashley you still think of Full House

* Anything is ok with you except for a condeming attitude

  1. Thats hilarious! I’d love to read the book. Some of my friends were gonna have an 80’s party (we never got around to it then) and so we sat around remembering 80’s styles. The “neon” colors, the little circle things we wore on the edge of our t-shirts, the feathered thing the guys did to the back of their hair, jeans and shirt sleeves rolled up, two colors of socks worn on top of each other (my personal fav), acid-washed denim… I think a lot of what I remember was early 90’s though. GROSS! Let’s pray that stuff never comes back in style again! 🙂

I would love your thoughts!
