  • How can my mother-in-law, a 90 years old lady, appreciate so much this piece of false pre-teenager? A woman who had 8 children, has many grandkids and even grand-grandkids? And she says she had already work enough taking care of her children!

    She asks a daughter to wash the dolls' hair with good shampoo and put that naked piece to take a rest under the sun and dry her head, the cloth body laid on an ironing board. Hahahah!!!

    When I was a child, dolls were essential for me to play the doctor role, with needles and sthetoscopes, plasters and all I could have in my hands. This girl my mother-in-law would be so special for me if she could travel in time and have some needles. But the lady tells me her natural hair has come from Germany and she was formerly made of porcelain. Well, I don't think an eight-children's mother like the idea of pricking throught the ex-porcelain head and body. But I'm just a little girl playing with dolls, wouldn't the lady know?

    But the doll hears my thoughts and there comes her bad idea. She shows me her only breast and I think the ozone hole on the layer will disinfect her and then will make things worse. But there's no injection to save a doll from the window, the heavy summer noon wind, the iron on the ironboard (without clothes under or over...) and the shadow on the shelf as soon as she gets dry.

    For the girl there's no difference, because of her Sjögren syndrome.
