What I do remember is the thing I couldn't have. Even though I wanted it really really bad. I'd wish for it every night before sleeping and imagined how cool it would be to play with it.
The Cinderella Barbie doll.
It was sparkly and shiny. With an elegant blue gown. And the princess crown. I can see why I was attracted to it. I was a Disney child. It must've seemed magical to own a character I grew up watching.
It wasn't really that expensive, just Rs. 2000. That's not very expensive is it? I tried saving up too. It didn't work out.
Every time I passed the shop I used to go in and look at the doll, then assure myself that I'd come back to get it when I had enough money.
I asked people too. But they forgot. Or maybe thought they'd get it for my birthday or whatever, and then forgot? Anyhoo. I didn't get it.
I realized that it still hurts a little when I was telling MA about this and she told me she had the exact same thing! Wow, what a coincidence. Unfortunately, she gave it away to someone so I can't see it. Sad.
She was even more beautiful than the picture above. And her dress was blue.
EDIT: This was when I was like ten or something.
