Barbie is 50 years old today.
When Barbie was 40, she and Ken lived with the four of us in Married Student Housing. El and Mo let her out of the box occasionally. Hindsight tells me that maybe she was suffering some sort of mid-life crisis. 40 can do that to a girl.
We're not sure where she's holed up now. She skipped town shortly after paparazzi, er, Steve caught her in the act and took this picture of her.
Here's hoping that Barbie finds herself in a better place as she celebrates this milestone.
Someone please tell me that 50 will be better than 40 was...
