Did you guys ever have to take these creepy things home in high school? The Real Baby Simulators for Sex Ed or whatever the hell your school taught. We were in the bible belt so ours was for Sex Ed with the sole purpose to scare the hell out of us. Good tactic, I think. Look at them! Scary. And they're tempermental bastards, too. You know, like if you shake the shit out of them for gurgling all night long, they tell on you in the morning. Then you get detention or in school suspension... Not that I know or anything.
My best friend's neice came along with her to visit this weekend and it was her weekend with the
creepy thing baby.
We took that thing out to eat lunch and of course, it cried. People looked at us like we were insane when we held it.
Okay, I never held it. I've got my own kids, no doll can scare me now. It'd be totally wasted on me.
I was reading the booklet that comes home with it, her - Apple Jane, in this case. Do you know these things can 'die' of SIDS? And if it does, you get an F? What kind of bullshit is that?
I'm so glad there is so much strange shit in the world to serve as blog fodder.
