Yesterday I walked into the office of a friend and she was going to show me baby dolls that had been purchased for the kids taking the classes in parenting. The dolls are realistic and are hooked to a computer so that if the baby cries and the “mom” doesn’t feed, change, love on it – it is recorded. It records other things too. As we were about to open the boxes to look at some her phone rang and I proceeded to get one out while she answered the call.
As I turned, looking at the doll and reading the warning on the package another friend walked in and I had to ask – isn’t this a tiny bit ironic? The doll was in a plastic bag that carried the usual warning – Keep away from children, choking hazard, can cause asphyxiation.
As I told hubby about it that evening, he asked “Was the doll blue?” When I replied that it wasn’t he looked up from the paper he was reading and said “It’s not very realistic then is it?”
And people think my humor is twisted…
