YOU WERE A LITTLE GIRL IN THE 70'S IF...
You made baby chocolate cakes in your Holly Hobbie oven. (Man I burned myself on that thing all the time. It also would make a huge mess. My mom finally banned me to the garage to play with it.)
You learned to skate with actual skates (not roller blades). (I learned how to skate wearing tennis shoes skates.)
You loved the Love Boat. You wanted to live on a ship too.
You had nightmares after watching Fantasy Island.
You had Moon boots for snowy days.
You had either a "bowl cut" or "pixie," not to mention the "Dorothy Hamil" because your Mom was sick of
braiding your hair. People sometimes thought you were a boy. (I was so mad when my mom cut my long hair into this horrible hair cut.)
Your Holly Hobbie sleeping bag was your most prized possession.
You wore a poncho, gauchos, and knickers. (You know when you google the word "Knickers" it pulls up all sorts of panties......)
The swing set tipped over at least once.
You had homemade ribbon barrettes in every imaginable color and wanted the long feathers on roach clips to wear in your hair but your mom wouldn't buy them for you. (Had no idea what a roach clip was.....)
You had a pair of Doctor Scholl's sandals (the ones with hard sole & the buckle). These were the MOST uncomfortable shoes EVER.
You loved Laura Ingalls Wilder. ( I have seen every one of those shows and read all the books. I even tried to watch a show the other day just for fun. Not so fun anymore.)
You carried a Holly Hobbie lunch box to school and it was metal, not plastic.
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! (Those monkeys gave me nightmares.)
You watched HR Puffinstuff on Saturday mornings. (That show scared the bajezus out of me. Especially witchy-pooh)
You completely wore out your Grease soundtrack record album. (My mom didn't want to buy this for me. I begged forever to get it. I never really understood what the big deal was. Then as I got older I listened to the words, really listened. Holy crap, Grease Lightning is NASTY!)
You tried to do lots of arts and crafts, like yarn and Popsicle-stick God's eyes, decoupage, or those weird potholders made on a plastic loom. Pot holders I believe they were called "loom loopers"
You made Smurf Shrinky-Dinks!
You used to tape record songs off the radio by holding your portable tape player up to the speaker. ( I called our radio station to have them play 9-5 by Dolly Parton a million times one afternoon so I could record it with my tape player. Poor DJ)
You couldn't wait to get the free animal poster that came when you ordered books from the Weekly Reader book club. Double score if it was a teddy bear dressed in clothing.
You learned everything you needed to know about girl issues from Judy Blume books (Are you there God, It's me, Margaret.) I learned EVEN more for Judy Blume's book Forever in 7th grade.
You thought Olivia Newton John's song "Physical" was about aerobics.
You wore friendship pins on your tennis shoes, or shoelaces with hearts or rainbow designs.
You wanted to be a Solid Gold dancer. (LOVED this show. Those dancers were pretty slutty looking now that I look back on it though.)
You loved Captain Cave Man and Jabber Jaw on Saturday morning cartoons.
School House Rock was how you learned how a bill was passed. (I'm just a bill. Yes, I'm only a bill. And I'm sitting here on Capitol Hill)
You played with the REAL Fisher Price Little People. Not the big chunky, clunky ones they have now. You know the real ones you could choke on.
You wanted to wear a costume like Wonder Woman to school. You couldn't wait until you got boobs to fill the Wonder Woman costume.
You owned "Klick-Klacks" and smacked yourself in the face more than once. (Or you used them as weapons and beat the sh$t out of your siblings with them)
