Perfect Plastic

It happened.

The other night Amanda, while holding up a Barbie doll said to me ... "I wish I had a body like this."

Me: Everyone does, but it's impossible to have a body like that.

Amanda: How come?

Me: Because it's not real. God didn't create bodies like that. No one has that kind of body unless they paid for it.

Amanda: What do you mean?

Me: Some women pay plastic surgeons to make them look like that. They have their boobs made bigger and have fat sucked out of their legs and all kinds of stuff just so they will look like that doll.

Amanda: Who would want to do that? Who would even want to look like that?

Me: Uh, YOU?! The whole reason we're having this conversation is because YOU said you wished you had a body like that.

Amanda: Well I don't anymore!

Me: Good.

Let's hope that sticks. If she brings it up again, I may have to show her this:
