I'm a child of the 80's. Part of that weird little in-between generation that is on the tail end or just past Gen-X and before the millennials came along. We grew up alongside technology- I was both closely acquainted with the rotary phone and the owner of a pager (ha!) followed by that classic Nokia cell phone in high school. My childhood memories are full of scratch-and-sniff stickers, Jell-O Pudding Pops, and Smurfs.
Oh..and The Cosby Show.
Despite the connotations of the name "Cosby" these days, I loved that show growing up in the 80's. I grew up with Rudy, thought Theo was kind of cute, and believed that Denise was just the coolest.
It was right up there with The Golden Girls for me. :-)
