This raises a wonderful and much needed chuckle --is Barbie really 'nearing 60' - a nice poetic tongue-in-cheek look at the ageing process and a nice pic

    Yep. She is. Michael Jackson, Barbie and I were all born the same year. She has done better than I and I did a bit better than Michael. :) (Loved his music!) Thanks for the great review!

Dear Wendy,
I enjoyed reading your rant at Barbie. It is very well written and funny.
But behind the lines it addresses
the potential harm this 'evergreen' doll can cause to many.

'I'm aging well like wine and cheese...' nice!

The last verse is great with its ''embalming fluid Max"
and your wish that Barbie would age 'gracefully just,' like you
and, 'relax!'
Warmest wishes,
Deirdre Anne

    Thank you for your review. I heard at one point they were making Barbies a bit more realistically formed so young girls would not think they had to LOOK like that to be pretty. You know, a scaled down version of a size 12 or 14. But I do not recall seeing one of these anywhere!

    At any rate, THANKS for the review! Appreciated!

    Nor have I. There was lots of talk about them.
    Unfortunately it's not only Barbie nowadays
    causing trouble!
    Best,

This is so clever, a very excellent entry into the contest. I love barbie dolls and I still have my original barbie ( circa 1967). I was going to enter but now I'm glad I didn't, too many great poems! Best of luck to you.

I really like this poem, especially the last two lines. You are such a teaser. One thing though, the physical description of the doll could be cut down a bit. It's like repeating the same thing in different ways. Thank you for sharing.

I wish she'd age more gracefully
(like ME) and just relax!

hahahahaha!! Love it! This is just so true. I was talking to my hubby about this yesterday. Things are sagging, falling, leaning, tipping, dragging... ugh. What happened to all of it??

Thanks for the laugh and good luck!

    Yes. When I wake up and something else hurts, I ask, " O.K. God is this just for today or is this permanent?" :) Thank you for taking the time to review!
