sunday found me cleaning and going through things. if you were to visit our home, you might think 'good lawdy, child, where is your crap?' but trust me there is crap, just "tucked away crap" ---huge difference.
okay, i loved my barbies. i was the president of the barbieholic meetings. my mother used to get little outfits made for my barbies and i wish that i still had all of my barbiebilia. with pride though, i confess to not encouraging our daughter to play with barbies, she has never owned one. i don't really know why i think this way...was she mere eye candy, or even worse, an airhead? looking back, i wonder how the whole dollplaying & rolemodeling thang shaped us girls.
my friend jenifer used to have the barbie townhouse, the grocery store, the jalopy, the everything. the grocery store was my favorite. sorry, folks. cash is not king, but the cash register is the freaking bomb! i loved that store of hers. we would play for hours with our barbies. surely, our barbies had skeletons in the townhouse closets, but i can't remember any.
well, sunday, when i was going through my suitcases, i found this pair of boots. okay, i can get rid of anything of value, but give me a pair of barbie gogo boots that i had taped one back together with masking tape like thirtyfreakingyears ago, and i am keeping it forever. you have to admire the technique of this masking job. ¡perfectomundo!
...and i would bet five dollars that ken never even noticed.
