Wow... I hadn't really thought about it that way.
A person, a little girl person who I could dress up and play house with.
Mine, all mine.
In the hospital the nurses brought her to me with tiny bows stuck on her head.
She had about 7 dark brown hairs on top of her noggin and since they had nothing to anchor the bows onto they used K-Y Jelly.
She looked lovely.
She put up with that crap until she was able to notice that something was on her head and then she'd pull everything I put in out.
"Darn it Googie, leave it in" I used to say, hitting her wee hand with a little ball-peen hammer ( I didn't really, I was just making sure you were paying attention)
Anyway, my plan was to make my doll the most beautiful doll anyone had ever seen.
(Not that she needed my help, just sayin)
I guess she had a similar plan.
When she was two, someone (Grandma Jan perhaps??) gifted her with a pink tiara.
It was a gaudy thing, sturdy plastic with a flag of pink chiffon material that blew in the air when she walked.
She didn't go anywhere without that tiara.
She got lots of attention at the grocery store.
And the pet shop.
And the doctor's office.
Yes, my doll was that adorable.
Even in that goofy tiara, she was simply cute as hell.
I've been noticing these beautiful huge azaleas around town and a few days ago I spotted one in my neighbors back yard.
I asked him if I could have it...ballsy, I know..but I had a plan.
How sweet that would look in someone's hair, Hawaiian style.
You know Dad, you were soooo right about the fun I would have with my own real live doll.....
"Hold still you brat, give the K-Y time to dry."
She really is a good sport.
(Thanks kid for indulging your crazy azz mother)
This freakin azz freak flower is as big as a freakin dinner plate.
Another freaky thing....
