Feeling Old

Last weekend, we went to the Strong Museum in Rochester which got me remembering my childhood and toys and shows. One of the girls I work with (Michelle) is just about the same age as me and sent me a "you know you were a kid in the 80's" list. I almost peed myself.

So for your enjoyment, I found 2 to share

You know you're an 80's kid if
How to know if you're an 80s child
