wow. first, lets start with Memories
Have you ever had one of those days where just the faintest smell of something would transport you back to that moment it happened whether it be good or bad? Where maybe the smell of a certain ingredient would bring back Grandmaw's Infamous Cookie Recipe? Or maybe the smell of The Ocean takes you to the time when you were a child, letting the waves crash over you in laughter? Well, i had one of those experiences tonight. I was dragging out the 3 huge boxes of Barbies and their Accessories to sort through to give to the little 7 year old neighbor of Mom's and mine, when suddenly i ran across these
Just a pair of a Barbie sofa set, but the smell of them is so memory-filled that it brought tears to my eyes, and i laid on the hardwood floor, hugging every piece of it to my heart. Or maybe these as i pulled them out of the box, smiling.
1999/2000 Millenium Princess Barbie (When everyone thought the world was going to end. What do you know, it's almost a decade later!)
And yet, of course, for the 1st time since Christmas Eve of 2004, the tabby cat prances out of the garage, holding something in his smirking and proud little mouth. But what, is this wonderous thing? A what? A MOUSE!!!?? who would have guessed?! and who, but the animal lover has to clean up the poor fellow's trail after begging COMIC to "not kill it! Let it live....OUTSIDE! It has a reason too you know!"
Therfore, I would like to hear some of your stories. On either subject, give or take?
