80s trends that need to come back

I took a journey into the 1980s last night when I went to see the musical Flashdance at Overture Center. The musical was quite the trip. I loved the dancing, the costumes, and the staging.

Out in the lobby, they were selling Flashdance legwarners, and I was thinking that's a trend that doesn't necessarily need a comeback. I never even owned owned any, but my mom did. Pink ones and purple ones. But I digress.

Here are some 1980s things I would like to see make a comeback.

1. Acid wash jeans, but only if the pockets and cuffs are in a different color acid wash denim than the rest of the pants. And while we're talking legwear, how about stirrup pants!?

2. Perms. (See above). Also, mullets.  What's wrong with being business in the front and party in the back?

3. Stroh's Beer. I used to drink a lot of that beer in the 80s. I think I liked it mostly  becaused when you read the neon light from the inside of the bar, it said "Shorts."

4. Trivial Pursuit. Whenever I played this game, I was super into it. I remember when a friend of mine and I took on an entire room of smart people and nearly beat them. And we would have too, if we had remembered the three things you add to Kraft Mac and Cheese, according to the box, are milk, butter, and SALT.

5." Moonlighting: The Twilight Years."  Admit it. You want to see Bruce Willis and Cybill at long last back together again!
