What do you do for a friend....

who has a troubled soul???? Well you can make sure she knows that you love her, and that you support her in ANY decision that she has to make. You are her shoulder to cry on and her crutch to lean on. You are her bandage when she bleeds, and her ear when she needs to vent. You are her words of "you can get thru anything" when she needs to hear it the most. You feel her pain when she hurts, and try to make it better if you can...

ULTIMATELY, as she knows you so well..... even though you can't make her problem go away, you take the weight off her shoulders for five minutes and you post this knowing it'll make her LAUGH HER ARSE OFF!!!


You had that Fisher Price Doctor's Kit with a stethoscope that actually worked.

You owned a bicycle with a banana seat and a plastic basket with flowers on it.

You learned to skate with actual skates (not roller blades) that had metal wheels.

You thought Gopher from Love Boat was cute (admit it!)

You had nightmares after watching Fantasy Island.

You had either a 'bowl cut' or 'pixie', not to mention the 'Dorothy Hamill'.
People sometimes thought you were a boy.

You had rubber boots for rainy days and Moon boots for snowy days.

YEAH! You owned a 'Slip-n-Slide', on which you injured yourself on a sprinkler head more than once.

You owned 'Klick-Klacks' and smacked yourself in the face more than once!

Your Holly Hobbie sleeping bag was your most prized possession.

You wore a poncho, gauchos, and knickers.

You begged Santa for the electronic game, Simon.

You spent hours in your backyard on your metal swing set with the trapeze. The swing set tipped over at least once.

You had a pair of Doctor Scholl's sandals (the ones with hard sole & the buckle).

PONG! ('video tennis' ) was the most remarkable futuristic game you've ever heard of !

Your hairstyle was described as having 'wings' or 'feathers' and you kept it 'pretty' with the comb you kept in your back pocket. When you walked, the 'wings' flapped up and down, looked like you were gonna 'take off'

You know who Strawberry Shortcake is, as well as her friends, Blueberry Muffin and Huckleberry Pie.

You carried a Muppets lunch box to school and it was metal, not plastic. With the thermos inside some were glass inside and broke the first time you dropped them.

You and your girlfriends would fight over which of the Dukes of Hazzard was your boyfriend.

YOU had Star Wars action figures, too!

It was a big event in your household each year when the 'Wizard of Oz' would come on TV. Your mom would break out the popcorn and sleeping bags!

You often asked your Magic-8 ball the question: 'Who will I marry. Shaun Cassidy, Leif Garrett, or David Cassidy?

You completely wore out your Grease, Saturday Night Fever, and Fame soundtrack record album.

You used to tape record songs off the radio by holding your portable tape player up to the speaker.

You had subscriptions to Dynamite and Tiger Beat.

You learned everything you needed to know about girl issues from Judy Blume books. (Are you there God, It's Me, Margaret.)

You thought Olivia Newton John's song 'Physical' was about aerobics. (?? its not??)

You wore friendship pins on your tennis shoes, or shoelaces with heart or rain bow designs.

You wanted to be a Solid Gold dancer.

You drowned yourself in Love's Baby Soft - which was the first 'real' perfume you ever owned.

You glopped your lips in Strawberry Roll-on lip-gloss till it almost dripped off.

HUGS Girl.... I'll love you forever!!!!!!!!

Loved it! I remember or relate to about 95% of it. Just wasn't into the Star Wars thing - my rebellious streak showing!

Oh my! That is SO my childhood! Especially the roller skates! My kids don't even know what those are!

Michelle said...

Oh. My. God. That takes me back! Thanks for the memories! I had totally forgotten about those stupid "friendship pins"!

Mellisa said...

Thank you!

Looks like we are all from the same era, eh? Boy, that brings me back too. Although my friends and I fought over which Hardy Boy was our boyfriend (mine was Shaun. Without a doubt).
