Perhaps you didn’t know you needed a The Breakfast Club doll? I didn’t know I needed one. Now I can’t stop thinking about this one. Wanting things is weird like that, right?
And let’s be clear. I am THE WORST. If I see a little thing that looks fancy and seems interesting or clever or fun, I will think about it for 127 years. Or possibly 127 hours. My point being, I can’t get it out of my head for what seems like the longest OR most relentless time.
Cases in point:
1/ I think about Brunetti Raspberry Eclairs most days of the week. LOVE their pinky elegant tang. LOVE.
2/ I’ve been thinking about buying the book Cloud Atlas. Every day. Since last week. Admittedly that’s not a super crazy longing, but it’s still a nagging pang.
3/ I think about buying the Box Set of The Sopranos every third day or so. I have been doing this for about 2 months. I am obsessed with Edie Falco and I didn’t ever watch this series and now I know my life is incomplete until I close the Edie binge-watching circle with The Sopranos. I am also obsessed with Merrit Wever. I wish her Nurse Jackie character Zoe would come and live in my house. In my spare room. If I had a spare room. I love Nurse Jackie so much.
4/ I think about buying this book. I love Chrissy Teigen and her cute-faced kid and her sassy quipping and I really want her book and I look at it once a week online but I haven’t bought it yet. (Did you know she has a food blog?! It’s old and from a long time ago, but it’s there!!)
5/etc Pork and Green Pea dumplings. Most weeks. Kewpie Sesame Dressing. Most weeks. Breakfast at Mario’s. Most months. Chicken sandwiches at Madame Brussels. Most quarters. Holidays in sunny Bali. Most months.
Phew. You SEE! Argh. I am the worst. WANT.
LUCKILY I am very disciplined, I think about wanting things a lot. I don’t have to HAVE the thing. I can work through the want. But I will still THINK about the thing. Until, at some point, I don’t. Because I have thought of something else (thing two) and thing one has been popped on the back burner (simmering but not to be forgotten).
I think this doll is going to be like that. A sort of wave of want that goes in and out like the tide.

Also – there is a Stranger Things Sesame Street parody called Sharing Things. So know that.
