Have you all seen this article?
The article’s hilarity comes from the fact that its predictions are astonishingly accurate. I got the link it from Denise (who had Felicity, by the way).
Me? I had Molly. And here’s what the article has to say about that choice:
If you had Molly, you probably wanted Samantha instead, but contented yourself with Molly because you too wore glasses, liked books, were bad at math, and would concoct various schemes to get attention. (Oh, Molly.) If you were a Molly, and had a Molly (as opposed to being a Molly and aspirationally owning a Felicity), you were imbued, then and now, with an immutable sense of self. At least Molly could tap dance, which is frankly more talent than any of the other girls exhibited.
As an adult, you’ve developed a carefully honed aptitude for sarcasm. You’ve gotten contacts, and a slightly edgy haircut. You still sort of want attention, but you deny it. You’ve thought back on your American Girl Doll, and tried not to be too resentful towards the person who gave her to you, who so obviously associated you with the descriptor “mousy.”
And … I have to say that it’s pretty much all true. Except for maybe the being resentful of the person who gave her to me–that would be my parents. And I’m actually surprised that they got me an American Girl doll at all, given their usual practicality. I came so close to being one of you “No American Girl Doll” girls!
So, time to fess up. Which American Girl doll did you have? And what do you think of the article’s predictions?
