      That’s so cute. I wanted Barbie and an Easy Bake Oven. What I got was a GI Joe and match box cars. So I tied GI Joe to a stake and lit him on fire doing a war dance. Boy O boy my dad sure tanned my hide for that.

      Hey, I liked to cook but I loved my G.I. Joes too. Of course my G.I. Joe Command Headquarters was probably the only one that had a “back room”! It wasn’t until later that I figured out why “interrogations” involved stripping the bad guy (“Big Jim” whose bicep flexed when you bent his arm), tying him up, and Joe rubbing against him. #DADT

      @GreenmanTN: That sounds pretty cool. But I wanted the Barbie Dream House too, so I could open a Bed and Breakfast. Then Ken, GI Joe, Midge, or anyone else could come over and hang out. I have to admit that I felt strangely excited as I stripped off his clothes. I was 8 at the time.

      I spent my allowance on Mariah Carey cassette tapes, and later on, CDs. Oh, the 90′s

      Yay for “stories” that are just quotes from an article and offer nothing but placeholder space for readers.

      That’s definitely why I visit this site…

      age 5 i had a plastic tea set, a mini ironing board with iron, and a toy mop and bucket.

      WTF!?
      i must be the goblin who was exchanged for that child cuz christ knows i grew up to be the laziest scuzziest housework avoiding stereotypical male ever. (i’m even considering putting newspaper on my kitchen surfaces so i don’t have to clean them, removing when it’s dirty or i have visitors; and i’ve only personally used an iron about twice my entire adult life. need a perfectly smooth shirt: buy a new one.)

      N.B i assure you i keep my own bodily bits n’ pieces very clean thanks for asking; the shower curtain not so much. it’s not that i tolerate a messy environment it’s that i’m more adverse to dirt than most; i don’t wanna touch it. and that’s what god created low wage immigrants for. not really.

      I had a GI Joe which I hated. I had toy cars which I hated, I had toy soldiers which I hated. All I wanted was a Barbie, a doll house, and an Easy bake oven. Is that too much to ask?

      @BiL: Certainly not. But it is NEVER too late. I have a token Barbie which I procured at a thrift store years ago even though I am a grown man. Maybe it is not the same but hey your never too old to be a kid. It is all about heart and letting go of past hurts. Have fun and be nice to yourself.
