Sock Drawer Hilarity

The other day, I found something fantastically amazingly awesome in my sock drawer (ok, ok, maybe it was the underwear drawer. whatever... either way.). I had no idea it existed, that I had it, or that I had been apparently dragging it around with me for years with my stash of unclaimed socks. Here it is... (drumroll please!)...

So, now that you've seen the picture I bet you think that I have either a. a very small body, or b. very big feet. Well, my friends, you would be wrong. The sock is there for scale, because what we have here is the extremely rare and elusive Cabbage Patch Kid bathing suit. Yep, when you grow up in sunny Southern California, even the dolls have bathing suits. Not having grown up into a particularly girly-girl, the fact that I ever even wanted this thing in the first place is almost as hilarious as the fact that it is still with me to this day. I love it. After recovering from my hysterical laughter, I put it right back in the drawer. I think I'll keep it there forever, you know, to keep in touch with my inner 8 year old...

So funny...do you still have the doll, or is the bathing suit the only thing that is left? The shape of the suit is so dollish in its non-human proportions...unusually small rise and very short torso. Awesome find!

all I can imagine is that it was stuck in with something that I don't wear almost ever, like maybe my scarves and mittens and somehow migrated to the sock drawer? I have no idea, and the doll it self is long long gone! this is the last artifact of my cabbage patch kid days...

I recently found the little purple booties from my Popple in my sock drawer. I love that thing (and yes, I do still have it).
