You know you’re a 90s kid if…

18 01 2011

Quite some time ago (months and months, to be honest), I found a page called “90s Kids” on 20 Something Bloggers. Reading through everything they list there, it put a great big smile on my face – and I’m hoping to spread that smile to you. So sit back, read the list, and have some fun reminiscing…

You know you’re a 90’s kid if…

You’ve ever ended a sentence with the word “PSYCHE!”
You yearned to be part of the Baby-Sitters club.
You use to love playing with your My Little Pet Shop.
You remember when it was actually worth getting up early on a Saturday to watch cartoons.
You wore a ponytail on the side of your head and had fluffed bangs.
You remember reading “Goosebumps.”
You know the profound meaning of “Wax on, wax off.”
You have pondered why Smurfette was the only female Smurf.
You still get the urge to say “NOT” after every sentence… Not…
You knew that Kimberly, the pink ranger, and Tommy, the green ranger, were meant to be together.
You ever got injured on a Slip’ n’ Slide
You knew what it meant to say “Care Bear Stare.”
You remember Alf, the little brown alien from Melmac
You knew all the characters names and their life stories on “Saved By The Bell.”
You used to wear those stick on earrings, not only on your ears, but at the corners of your eyes.
You’ve gotten creeped out by “Are You Afraid of the Dark?”
You know the Macarena by heart.
Talk to the hand … enough said
You thought Brain (from Pinky and the Brain) would finally take over the world.
You remember when Michael Jackson was not so creepy but really cool!
You owned a bag of marbles!
Computer’s hadn’t taken over your life
Neon was cool
You owned every single Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle accessory.
The phrase “I am the terror that flaps in the night…” Still get you a little excited!
You always said, “Then why don’t you marry it!”
You remember when everyone went slinky crazy.

When we were younger:
Before the MySpace frenzy.
Before the Internet & text messaging.
Before Sidekicks & iPods.
Before PlayStation2 or X-BOX.
Back when you put off the 5 hours of homework you had every night to play outside with your friends.
When you rented VHS tapes, not DVDs.
When we recorded stuff on VCRs
When we called the radio station to request songs to hear off our walkmans.

Way back.
Hide-n-Go Seek at dusk.
Red Light, Green Light.
Tree Houses.
Hula Hoops.
Reading R.L. Stine’s Goose Bumps and Fear Street
Running through the sprinklers.
That “Little Mermaid”
Crying when Mufasa died in the Lion King. Every time you watched it.
Getting the privilege to sit in the front seat of the car.
Watching Saturday Morning Cartoons in your PJ’s still wrapped up in your TMNT, Power Rangers, Barbie, Fairy Princess comforter.
Wearing your new shoes on the first day of school.
When Christmas was the most exciting time of year.
When Toys R Us overruled the mall.

Go back to the time when:
Decisions were made by going ‘eeny-meeny-miney-moe’.
Mistakes were corrected by simply exclaiming ‘do over!’
Money issues were handled by whoever was banker in ‘Monopoly’.
It wasn’t odd to have two or three ‘best’ friends.
Being old referred to anyone over 20.
Scrapes & bruises were kissed & made better.
It was a big deal to finally be tall enough to ride the ‘big people’ rides at the fair.
When playing Nintendo was the hardest thing ever.

Before we realized all this would eventually disappear
