Are You a Child of the 70s? – Page 2

You learned to swim at about the same time "Jaws" came out... and still carry the emotional scars to prove it.


If female: you thought that Shawn Cassidy was "dreamy", lusted after "Ted, your ship's photographer" on the Love Boat or Chachi.

Your parents wanted you to attend medical school, but you decided it was pointless since Quincy got all the babes anyway.

Your first musical purchase was an 8-track tape.

In your sophomore class picture, you're wearing a shirt with the collar "up".

You remember that music that was labeled "alternative" really was.

You actually remember Benetton.

It was a major accomplishment to get to the "Chase" scene in Ms. Pacman.

You're starting to believe that having the kids go to school all year wouldn't be such a bad idea after all.

The Brady Bunch Movie brings back warm memories.

You tuned in regularly to the adventures of the Bionic Man and Woman, Wonder Woman, and/or the Incredible Hulk.

You remember Bo and Luke Duke, Daisy, Boss Hogg, or, worst of all - what Sheriff Roscoe's full name was. (Coltrain)

Chevy Chase was really funny in those vacation movies.

This rings a bell: "and my name, is Charlie. They work for me."

You actually believed that Mikey, famed kid on the Life cereal commercials, died after eating Pop Rocks and drinking a Coke.

You remember when your cable TV box had a sliding selector switch and your "cable or VCR remote" was connected to the TV by a CORD!

You ever wanted to learn to play "Stairway to Heaven" on the guitar and choreographed "Dancing Queen" by yourself in your room.

Leg warmers were cool.

You were unsure if Diet Coke would ever catch on.

You ever owned a set of "Pop-Wheels", that handy little combination of shoe and roller skate that lasted about a year on the open market.

You took family trips BEFORE the invention of the mini-van and remember riding in the back of the station wagon trying to get passing trucks to honk at you.

Your parents paid £2,000 for a top-loading VCR that was almost the size of a coffee table.

"Members Only" jackets...say no more.

You remember trying to guess the first episode of the Brady Bunch from the first scene.

You know, by heart, the words to Weird Al Yankovic's songs.

Schoolhouse Rock played a HUGE part in how you learned things like grammar, math and history. (A big hint here is if the only way you can recite the Preamble to the Constitution is by singing it.)

You found nothing strange about Bert and Ernie living together.
