If I had my 'druthers,' I want THIS ...

Army Barbie.

O, yes.

Why?

Partly because I grew up with Barbies. Partly because I served in the U.S. Army. That kind of cognitive dissonance was only experienced by my generation.

Barbie? Military service? Too rich to ignore.

first of all, thank you (I have respect for those who have served our country)
I imagine it changed your life for the better.

Neo, truly, my only regret in life is that I couldn't GIVE my life in service. As it is, I must ignominously be a social drone, alas.

To give one's life in service of an ideal is, thinks me, the ultimate expression of life. But then, I'm a child of soldiers.
