For the Toy Box…

Unfulfilled Expectations

She grew tired of
puppetry, unfulfilled expectations,
and making fathers
nervous during communion
meditation. So,
Barbie left the city, ordered
a double bacon
cheeseburger and
partied all night.

    Good for Barbie! I think a double bacon cheeseburger is just what that girl needs! And possibly a chiropractor, I’m imagining . . . 😉

    Little push-back here, heh?

    Not so nice, not so go with the flow, not so compliant, not so sweet . . .

    Got some teeth, do you? Yep, I see ’em. Got some grit, too, even if it just flashes at the edge of that gorgeous smile.

    It looks good on you.

    So much fun to buck the well-traveled road and head out on your own path.

    Ken had no heart
    or nerve to ask Barbie
    to come back.
    She’d never had much appetite
    for him anyway,
    he remembers thinking.
    Besides, he’d gone organic
    years ago.

    Well, ya know……I never had a Barbie doll….whaaaaa:(….good thing cause I’ve always had a weight problem and she would have just compounded my young insecure years. I’ve come to terms with my “fleshy” self…hahahaha…and know that God loves me…ME! Does that mean I don’t care about my health or my weight..I do. And continue to walk……what am I writing all this stuff for..SEE!! Yes, Barbie SHOULD have had a cheeseburger or two and YES, I should have had a few less…hehehehe…..loved it!
