Happy Birthday, Barbie!
Yes, today is the official "birthday" of everyone's favorite fashion doll -- Barbie.
I hate her.
I think my late mother, God rest her soul, hated Barbie, too, cuz she never bought me one. Not one.
Oh, I had a Little Miss Revlon doll -- a hand-me-down from my older sis. And a Babette doll -- the cheap grocery store version of Barbie (yikes).
And I had a Tressy and a Francie -- all Barbie wannabes.
But no Barbie. Until I was 30, and my good friend Linda surprised me with my first Barbie.
I stuck her in the attic.
Impossible fashion and figure standards hve been set by that woman -- and frankly, Barbie has not always been the brightest bulb in the pack. Yet somehow she's managed to have some of the most exciting and interesting careers...
How DOES she do it?
Well, more on my nemesis later.
Must get to my job...doubt very much you'll ever see a Grocery Schlepper Barbie...
