    Okay, you know you're an 80's child when almost every song on your MP3 player has a heavy Synthesizer sound. Kinda like an upbeat mortuary. ;)

    You know how to use hairspray, a curling iron, more hairspray, a teasing comb, more hairspray, a crimping iron, all in one primping session. LOL!

    I sooo wish I had a picture of myself from Youth Camp. :D

    Ha! :D My next one was going to be, "If you've ever occasionally worried what overexposure to Aquanet might do to you later in life."

    So, instead.....

    If you ever had a crush on one of the members of Duran Duran.

    (I was going to say Rick Astley instead of Duran Duran, but I think that was just a me thing, not an 80's thing) :redface:

    If your shoulders could take out an NFL linebacker. :)

    Do you remember those large shoulder pads?! LOL!
    I mean really, did people really think that looked good.? hahaha

    Oh and FYI~ I had a poster of Duran Duran, there was nothing finer than Nick Rhodes and Simon Le Bon. "sigh"

    You're an 80"s child if you can match bright neon yellow with fuschia and brilliant purple. ;)

    You know you're a child of the 80's when you look at what kids are wearing lately and feel a weird mix of nostalgia and nausea.

    If you've ever scrounged in a dumpster looking for a clean, large cardboard box so that you and your "crew" can carefully
    open it up, spread it out, and break dance on it.

    Wait, wait! Here's the guy's version....

    If you saved all your money from workin' at McDonald's to buy that totally boss pair of Z Cavaricci pants. The pleated kind. With belt loops for two belts at the same time!!

    Also, if you have a pic of yourself that in any way resembles the cats in this pic.

    (The guy in the middle and on the left are wearing Z Cav's, baby! No mistaking that white tag right on your junk!) :D

    Ok, one more then I have to go and grout some more tile...

    If you ever spent your hard earned cash at Chess King!

    (This one may be regional, cuz I don't know if Chess King was in every mall. It was in mine, and if you were an 80's teen, this was the place to go in order to dress to excess!) :D
