My aunt came from Peru in the Summer of 2004.
She brought with her a kid-sized doll. It was a present
for me. The doll had a colorful gym leotard on
and when you pressed the button on her chest,
she would sing a work-out song.
I felt bad that I didn't want my present. So, I
kept it in my room. It stood next the small TV
stand that held my Micky Mouse TV. When my aunt
went back to Peru, I kept the doll in my room.
Because it was a present from her and I don't
see her much, at all. I didn't want my parents
to think I didn't like it. So, I kept it for
years, wiping off the dust when needed.
