My son is always telling me how "uncool" I am so when the opprotunity arose for us to bond over some Bon Jovi, I jumped at the chance.
We were in the car on our way home when "You Give Love a Bad Name"  by Bon Jovi came on the radio. Of course I turned it up, I look over and Chucky is singing, so I started in {psyche}. Chucky stops singing and asked me, "how do you know this song?" He acted like it was a new song, a song that had just came out and that he ultimately discovered. I said I used to listen to this in junior highschool, and he said, "it's that old?" I thought my god, that is an old song. It doesn't seem like yesterday, but it sure doesn't seem like thirty years ago.
I sit here with a smile on my face just thinking of the good and bad of the 80's and think to myself... I am so glad I got out alive!
Do you remeber the 80's? Well here is a little back in time action for you. Feel free to laugh out loud, get a little red in the face and definately say to yourself, What Was I Thinking? Enjoy;}

Things that I could live without:
neon-anything neon socks, bracelets, shirts, shoe laces, t-shirt clips, big hair- the claw, keds without laces, keds with neon laces, parachute pants, cut off sleeveless shirts, aqua net, pee wee herman, big shoulder pads, skater haircuts{lop sided}, garbage pail kids, floppy disks.



Things that I wish we still had:
trapper keepers, popples, scratch-n-sniff stickers, sticker albums, sticker collections, roller skating rinks, tetherball, polaroid cameras, swatch watches, jelly shoes, atari, and of course all of our 80's music.
