My Texas A&M male cheerleader (AA) has arrived!
I thought that I had missed out on this one after he had sold out earlier this year. When I saw the message that he was back on sale, I jumped at the chance to get him.
My husband and I were spending time "together" on Saturday. I say "together" because we were in the same room, but doing different things. He was watching football game after football game, and I was on the computer. When I'm at the computer, my back is to the television, but by golly I turned around in time enough to see the Texas A&M male cheerleaders run out onto the field. I blurted out "I've got one coming!" My husband gave me a strange look and said "What?" I thought about whether or not I wanted to tell my husband about my latest doll purchase and decided that I really didn't want to, so I said "Nevermind." My husband asked "You've got one of WHAT coming?" So I quickly changed my mind again and told him about my doll. He even indulged me as I showed him photos of the doll on the internet.
Hours later during some other game that I had no interest in, I asked my husband who won the Texas A&M game. He corrected me "You mean the ALABAMA and Texas A&M game?" I said "You know what game I mean, so just answer the question." He was laughing as he told me that Alabama won. I didn't really care, the only reason that the game even registered with me is because of this doll. I love it when my interests and his interests collide.
Meanwhile, back to today and the arrival of my new doll. I am not the only one in this household excited about the new arrival. Several of my female dolls are excited as well. Alvin Ailey Barbie welcomed him in a way that she knew he would appreciate.
She led the others in a rallying cry, "LET HIM OUT! LET HIM OUT! LET HIM OUT!" Soon, ladies, soon he will be free.
My husband thinks that their exuberance is misplaced, as he thinks that this Texas A&M cheerleader doll will have no interest in spending time with the ladies. I happen to disagree. I guess we shall see.
