First, off this post is something different for me. It’s probably because I usually don’t plan what I am going to post about before hand; but this time I planned it! Exciting huh?. Anyway, its a topic I don’t like to touch upon because it is a social issue. I think. lol. I really do not want to go into it. Really I don’t. Its some what of a controversial topic. It is called obesity. Everyone knows what it is, how it happens, etc…
So what does it have to do with barbie? Well, barbie is supposed to be some iconic, perfect, ideal, lady, that everyone wants (or supposedly ‘should’ want to be). Come on now, no one I know is like barbie…physically.
Personality wise, I know/knew a few people who are ‘barbie’ criteria. She (or ‘he’ – this decade) is the perky chick who owns a loft near the beach (I wish I knew someone with that kind of money), happy-go-lucky, and all-over-ken kind-of gal. I find these people annoying. This was just a side note; ignore it please.
Getting back to the social issue, not only which America is facing but which is also faced by most parts of the world, obesity. And… now I will stop talking about the issue at hand and connect it with ‘oh-so perfect-barbie’.
No, I don’t have this barbie in my collection…yet. [Image via google]
