BB 2.5's Husband Called. He is on the Way!
Sometimes the stars just align up perfectly. Today has been one of those days! As you know, Barbie Basics 2.5 arrived yesterday and I desperately wanted her to have a husband. I had someone in mind before she got here, but after seeing her in person, I wasn't sure about my choice. This morning I took a look on the internet to see if I could find her a suitable husband. I ended up on ebay. I saw a couple of unpainted head sculpts. One was of Denzel and one of Will Smith. Don't get excited, I said UNPAINTED head sculpts. I wasn't sure that I wanted to take on that task, but at $19 shipped, I was at least willing to look at the guys other items for sale. Low and behold, there he was! My male holy grail!!!! It was just his head, but I didn't care. It won't be hard to find a body for him. I think I have one here that will work. I had totally given up on ever having this guy. He has been so hard to come by. The going rate is about $200, last I checked. The painted head's starting bid was $29 shipped!! Unbelievable. There were 6 hours left on the auction and there weren't any bids yet. With an hour left on the auction, I found myself getting very nervous. There were still 0 bids. I never bid until an auction is almost over. Thirty minutes to go and I started getting worried that I would completely miss out on even putting in a bid. What happens if my internet stalls right before I get my bid in. I started dreaming up all kinds of "what ifs". So at 22 mins to go I put in my maximum bid of $35. And I waited. Three minutes left. No more bids. Two minutes. One minute. WHAT!!! Some fool is trying to steal my doll at the last minute. (If that person is reading this post, I apologize for calling you out your name.) Unfortunately for them, their maximum bid was $35, too. So it went to me. I WON! I WON! Oh, I need a drink now. Even though I didn't think I would ever have this guy, I would have been in mourning if I would have lost him at the last minute.
Isn't he just gorgeous!
So he and Barbie Basics 2.5 are married and have been living in Atlanta for the past 5 years. They are both originally from Virginia, and they are returning back home. She and Antoinette are best of friends. They went to high school together and have remained friends ever since. We will definitely find out more about this couple soon.
