X is the only letter that really stumped me for this challenge. All I could come up with was xylophone and xanax, neither of which left me feeling inspired. So I did the only thing I knew would work to come up with good ideas: I called upon my FaceBook friends for help. I asked for suggestions and was pleased to see so many of my friends willing to pitch in their thoughts! There were several more for xylophone and xanax and a bunch of other great ones that definitely got me thinking, (some of which I didn't even know the definitions!): xenolith, xenophobia, x-rated, x-ray, xeroform, Xanadu and many more.
I only had one Cabbage Patch Kid, but man oh man, I sure loved her so much. She was a "preemie", with a peach colored outfit and a smooth bald head. She smelled like baby powder and that scent lasted for years. I'm surprised I can't remember her name but I'm pretty sure she's still in my parents' house, packed away. I know I have a photograph of me opening the box at my 7th birthday party and I've searched high and low but can't find it.
I was surprised to learn that Cabbage Patch Kids are still being made. They're modernized with glasses and TShirts sporting catchy phrases. You can even go to www.cabbagepatchkids.com to adopt your doll or plan a visit to Baby Land General Hospital. I'm pretty sure that would have blown my seven year old mind!
