The Saga Continues . . .


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.

Okay, I wasn't gonna point this out, but in the picture last week, the naked guy is totally feeling that Barbie up.

(Feeling very awkward right now...)

Oh my gosh! I just laughed so loud that I scared my poor dog who was sleeping next to me. He jumped up and zipped off the bed, unaccustomed to early morning giggles. haha!

It was the Misery analogy that did me in!

love it!

And next week, in the Barbie Mansion.... I feel like I'm watching a soap opera!

LOL, that is fantastic. Like sand through the hourglass, these are the doll house days of our lives!

Thanks Shelley!

I'm thinking sado-masochism (and I don't even know how to properly spell it)...next week there will be whips and chains. Oh and black leather!

Hilarious! My husband thinks I'm insane as I laugh and type at the same time. If we get divorced, it's your fault.

Too funny! Thanks for the laugh!

And thanks for stopping by my blog and for following! :)

This is getting a little creepy :-) I guess this is what happens to Barbie after she hits 50 and still wants a body made of plastic and implants !
