Trolling for Laughs
Have I talked about my collection of troll dolls? Between the ages of ten and thirteen (correct me if I'm wrong, A!) every time I was dropped off at the mall, every time I found myself in a Hallmark store (which was surprisingly often circa 1991), I shelled out $7.99 or so for a new troll. When birthdays and Christmas came around, I also received a new troll. By the time I out-grew trolls, I think I had 45 of them. When I turned 25, my troll-buying partner-in-crime gave me all of her dolls, too.
I'm not sure what to do with them. They're not worth much on e-bay, and my mom often kicks herself for not holding onto some of her now-collectible memorabilia from her own childhood, so I'll probably keep them around a little longer. I'll get them out every once in a while to admire them and blow on their hair.
