    Barbies. My girlfriends would come over, and we’d play for hours …” Not me. As a child, I disliked the doll on impulse; as an adult, my feelings have actually fermented into a heady, full-blown hatred. My friends and I never owned Barbies.

    act of caring for someone has a calming effect on a person’s body and mind. In Edna St. Vincent Millay’s poem [what lips my lips have kissed, and where, and why], for instance, the woman is seeking a sexual “love” partner.
