Fat and Old

posted in: Age | 0

I used to go to Thrift Stores and buy Barbie dolls that were naked, dirty and tossed unwanted into a dusty old box. They were priced from $1.00 to $2.50, and the price was written on their backs in greasy pencil markings, rather like an eyebrow pencil lead. I bought those poor little dolls, took them home, washed their hair with Pantene, and then I would rush to the Dollar Store, and buy them something ‘classy’ to wear……. It became a bit of an obssession. By the time I hit 150 dolls, I realised I had a problem. So I laid them all down in a nice shiny plastic box and hid them in the shed.
