So, we're back in Barbie land. Last week, I found my daughters' Barbies up to some strange behavior. This week, more of the same . . .
As you can see. One of our beauties has taken up with a tiny wooden man in the attic of the dollhouse. At first glance, it would appear that she is nestling a tiny baby in an endearing maternal embrace. That is NOT the case. This fellow is a full-grown adult dollhouse man nestling at Barbie's bosom. And, look at the poor naked man who has been flung over the side of the house (still sporting the same goofy grin, bless his heart).
Let's go in for a closer look, shall we?
Hmm. Just as I suspected. The little wooden man is missing a foot. Did Barbie cripple him as Kathy Bates did to James Caan in Misery so that he could never escape from her? And, WHERE is the other Barbie who was with us last week and staring at the naked man with such rapture??
I will spend some time this week searching for the other Barbie and watching this bimbo to see what other tricks she is up to . . .
Ah. If I could only write a novel with this much tension.
