It’s time to face the facts. There are a lot of 90’s kid imposters out there, but I’m not saying any names. *cough* The 1995-1999 batch. Being a 90’s kid is not simply about the year you were born. No, it is so much more. It is a culture, a lifestyle, a shared history. You could even call it a cult following.
So how do you know? How do you weed out the authentic 90’s kids from the millenium babies? Fortunately, there are a few tell-tale signs.
You might be a 90’s kid if…
You consider Skip It a cardio workout.
You were dealing cards in the second grade. Pokecards, that is.
You’ve ever taken a red shell for your best friend.
Goldeneye N64 was your first shooter.
You’re still afraid of the dark.
Your Polly Pocket doll actually fit in your pocket.
Getting slimed was ever on your bucket list.
You’re still waiting to strike it rich with your Beanie Babies collection.
Your first brush with death was when you killed your digipet.
You ever tried to go Super Saiyan.
You dreamed of riding your Lisa Frank unicorn off into the sunset.
You still have a healthy fear of Furbys.
You’ve ever taken your lucky rabbit’s foot to school on a test day.
You still have scars from ironing perler beads and had no idea they were called perler beads.
