Another Boomer has celebrated a milestone birthday: Barbie. Of course, since she's Barbie, nothing much has changed. She's still single (Ken had commitment issues) and from what I can tell, her personality today is just as plastic as it was 50 years ago.
Like the rest of us, she's gone through careers - some worked out (Model Barbie wasn't much of a stretch) and some didn't (Rodeo Barbie never could get back on that horse). And don't get me started about her experimentation phase. Midge said it was only one time and they were both drunk on tequila shots.
As the photo clearly shows, the years have been tough but she's probably looking better than Ken. I hear he's lost most of his hair, put on 40 pounds and spends entirely too much time on Facebook.
If you'd like to see Barbie in action today, check out the link for "Cougar Barbie." Yeah, it's a little mean, but I hear she was a real bitch when she drank. At least that's what Skipper and P.J. tell me.
