You were a teenager in the 80's?

This was the question I was asked today by one of my daughter's twenty something middle school teachers. Here is the dialogue...

Me: This part of the school wasn't here when I attended here.
Teacher: You came here?
Me: Yes. I was here in the early 80s.
Teacher: You were a teenager in the 80s?
Me: Yes. I graduated high school in 89.
Teacher: Wow, you hold it well! (said in shock and amazement!)
Me: Thank you my new favorite teacher of Mikaela's!!! I love you! You are my new best friend!
(Just kidding. I didn't say that. That would be creepy.) I simply said "thank you."

And, I walked away feeling pretty happy!

1989 was awesome. That was the year the first Batman with Michael Keaton camoe out! Too bad I wasn't old enough to watch it :(

The 80's rule!!!!! Everyone should have lived thru them. I was watching Can't Buy Me Love the other day and I thought I can't believe we really dressed like that. Oh by the way, my blog is semi-fixed. So check it out again.
