As a child of the 80s, I can often spot others of my kind. If you hum "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" a little differently, pump your fist in the air after someone you ask out says yes or if you randomly shout, "Goonies never say die!" or "Be confident, Atreyu!" you might be in this club. Those are just the pop cultural references, of course; big hair and bright, bold colors are also a hallmark of the 1980s.
Nostalgia for that time is running rampant right now, so it's easy to find lists of, say, 50 things you get when you grew up in the 80s, but what are some things that these lists always miss? From my bright orange and pink jacket to my Strawberry Shortcake toys, I'm kind of an 80s cliche, so I don't have much room to talk!
