This list of relateable childhood memes has got me all kinds of screwed up. First of all, I’d forgotten about so much of the weirdly specific experiences that made childhood what it was, and second of all, I’m shook to realize so many other people did these exact same things.

I don’t know what kids today do. Are any of these things still relevant for them? Do they still like…have bikes?

I’ll have to remember to ask a kid if these ring true. In the meantime, you should enjoy them:

12. We were all smooooooth

11. We were party animals

10. We were creative

9. We were strong

8. We were deadly

7. We were intimidating

6. We were heroes


5. We were sophisticated

4. We were deep


3. We were cautious

2. We were scientific


1. We were artists

I just realized that in the future, childhood memes will probably be about making memes! I don’t think I’m ready for that kind of world. I’m still trying to understand Inception, and that was like 10 years ago.

What’s your favorite childhood quirk? In other words… what strange sh^t did you do when you were a kid?
