All dolls have secret lives as we all know…here’s a peek into one of them!
I admire a gal with a dream… especially when that dream is opening up your own business. After all, mine was to open the Pink Bubbles Doll Spa and here we are!
My friend Betty’s dream was owning her own restaurant and tonight hers was finally coming true. In fact “Betty’s Drive-Thru” was set to have its grand-opening in just a few hours when she came rushing in to the spa. “Honey, I hope you can squeeze me in cause I’m running outta time and one of my waitresses just called in sick! Imagine that, on her first night!” she told me. “Can I put this in your window while I’m here?” she said holding up the “Waitress Wanted” sign. “I gotta find a girl quick and I can’t be in two places at once! I may have to interview and hire her in curlers!”
“Sure thing Betty!” I said. While she placed the sign in the window, (I’m not even going to think about what passerby’s would say, scratching their heads..after all a waitress needed at Pink Bubbles?!) I started preparing my station for the job ahead.
Poor Betty, she’d been going a mile-a-minute for months readying the restaurant, and it was taking a toll on her appearance. She wanted to look great tonight and I had just under two hours to get the order right!
The first thing I recommended from our menu to Betty was a relaxing Pink Bubbles Beauty Bath for Face & Body. She needed some time to just relax, clear her head and let us wait on her for a bit.
When Daffy brought her back from her treatment, she took a seat in my chair and I got to work. Her hair was just a mess, I don’t think she’d run a comb through it in weeks, she didn’t have the time! After a good washing and some conditioner, I de-tangled it and began the styling. I pulled her hair up and back, securing it into a smooth ponytail and then curled the ends. I then addressed the messy curls of her bangs. Now, her hair looks great!
Next, I started on her make-up. I darkened her faded brows, then I evened out her blue eye shadow. Next, I touched up her lids. Her beautiful blue eyes finished, I mixed and applied a pretty coral shade of lipstick. I also gave her a touch of blush as she was a little pale. She looked years younger! I had Beatrice bring in her tray of “Safety-First!” earrings, (as if you could stop her!) and she selected the perfect pair.
All the while, Betty kept her eye nervously on the door, waiting for someone to notice the sign…but unfortunately, no one did. “Well, your ready to go!” I said as I turned her to the mirror. “You’re gonna knock em’ dead tonight Betty, I just know it!” Giving herself one last look, she said “I just hope to get through it. I guess I’m gonna have to pull triple duty tonight, owner, manager and waitress!” She then walked over and pulled her sign from the window.
“You know what Betty? You’re going to enjoy your big night as the proud owner only! I’ve done my fair share of waiting tables and if you’ll have me, I’m happy to help tonight! Look, I’m already wearing the right shoes!” I said pointing down to my no-nonsense white ortho’s. We both laughed! “Your hired Honey…your a real doll!” she said giving me a big hug. “Dinner’s on me…and by the way, you get to keep your own tips!”
The proud new owner of “Betty’s Drive – Thru” shines as bright as the spotlights outside greeting her hungry customers! A Pink Bubbles Beauty Bath for Face & Body and full hair and make-up service has made Betty as fresh as the home-made apple pies on tonight’s menu!
