I woke up on a cold February morning to see my mom standing by my bedside with big grin on her face. “It’s raining cats and dogs outside, there will be no school today. Why don’t you do what you LOVE to do but don’t get to do otherwise? There is only one condition, no electronics.”
So I thought I will play with my Barbies.I went inside my room and opened my cupboard. And I was surprised to see my Barbie’s chatting with each other.
I hid myself behind the cupboard and heard them talk. The beautiful Barbie, whom I had named ‘Archie’ was saying –“Dia does not play with us anymore” So, Anya said “Yes, She is very very busy.”
Then my favorite Barbie Rose said “Please don’t talk about Dia like this. She loves us all very much. But she has no time after school, badminton and chess classes.” That’s true everyone said. I felt very bad that I was not spending time with my friends.
I went to them and apologized and promised that I will play with them the whole day and on all Sundays.They were very happy and I hugged them all. We first played hide and seek. Next we played in the doll house.Then my mom called me for lunch. All Barbies went inside the cupboard. My mom asked me whom were you talking to?
I told her that I was talking to my Barbies. My mom thought I was joking. So she said “Oh! That’s great!! Don’t fool me! Let’s have lunch!!” And she left.
I whispered to my Barbies that I’ll be back in a jiffy!!!
While having lunch I could not control smiling. Mom was amused looking at me again and again and was surprised I finished my lunch in five minutes and rushed back to my room.
I was having the best day of my life.I enjoyed it thoroughly. And went off to sleep dreaming about the wonderful day I had spent.
Suddenly I could hear my mom waking me up. She said “It’s raining cats and dogs there will be no school today. Why don’t you do what you LOVE to do but don’t get to do otherwise? There is only one condition, no electronics”
I got up and realized that the whole episode of Barbies coming to life was a dream. I went inside my blanket wishing that my dream comes true!!!!
