Child of the 70’s

I have been adding list to my high school Facebook group page. There were three decades that went to my high school the 60′, 70’s and 80’s.

Here is a list if you were a child of the 70’s.

You Know You’re From The 1970’s…

Read the lists below to know you’re a child of the 1970’s:

“All skaters, change directions” means something to you.
This rings a bell: “and my name, is Charlie. They work for me.”
You remember when film critics were certain that no movie could ever possibly get better special effects than those in the movie TRON.
This rings a bell: “My name is Charlie, and they work for me.”!

You’re starting to believe that having the kids go to school all year wouldn’t be such a bad idea after all.
Leg warmers were cool.
You actually remember Benetton.
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 learned to swim at about the same time “Jaws” came out… and still carry the emotional scars to prove it.
You ever had a Dorothy Hamill haircut or used Short and Sassy shampoo.
