|"Right! I don't feel a thing."|
This was a black felt skirt and top with a sailor hat.
|"A snap instead of a pin would have been nice. And ribbons on the hat. |
But I'm not complaining because I was naked for so long."
|"Grown-ups sure are weird!"|
|Jade and Alouette get along surprisingly well together,|
considering the difference in their backgrounds.
The brunette had two feet when I got her. She was in a bag with a Barbie and I traded the Barbie with another blonde Moxie in another bag (which also contained a Barbie), and somehow a foot got lost along the way. I got that blonde for Auntie Berman (who is going to turn her into I Dream of Jeannie) and later we decided we each wanted a blonde and a brunette, and Mrs. Smith wanted one too, so we all went back and I asked about the foot but apparently it was irretrievably lost and gone forever. We each ended up with two dolls. Mrs. Smith found a two-doll Bratz carrying case in the purse section of the store and was quite pleased with herself.

Today Mrs. Smith came over and somehow in the conversation she said something like "I have two dolls and I'm not getting any more." Auntie Berman and I laughed and laughed. We assured her that she would. She said "Wanta bet?" and we said yes, but she never specified what the bet was.
A few minutes later she came inside and saw my little Julia doll (see http://dollieswithholesintheirstockings.blogspot.com/ ) and said "I think I'll start collecting some of these little dolls, because I had to take the ones I had back to my mom. So I asked her if she wanted Julia, because I hadn't gotten attached to her yet and she said sure.
It wasn't until she was heading for the gate that I said "You lost the bet!" She tried to claim I had tricked her, but I really hadn't. It wasn't like we went out and bought a doll and gave it to her, specifically so she'd lose the bet. It had all happened naturally and in less than 15 minutes from the time she had said she wasn't getting any more dolls.
