Seriously, I loved the 80s. As far as I’m concerned, they were the greatest decade in history. Sure, I grew up in the 60s and 70s, but in the 80s I was in my 20s and in my prime. I had *way* more fun than maybe I should have, but I look back on 90% with a lot of fondness. Hell, I’ve got a stupid grin on my face right now, thinking about some of the girls I knew, bars I went to, dances I danced, movies we went to and all the rest of it.
Ronald Reagan was President and it was “Morning in America”. We were back and brash again, the malaise of the Carter years washed away like the mud got washed away after a Sunday afternoon mudbogging-with a fire hose, baby! We were bigger than life and having the time of our lives.
Man, I wish I could do it again. I might change a thing or two, but mostly, I’d do it just the same. Because it was that much fun.
