...when 30-something women had nicknames like "Betty." I want a best friend named Betty -- yeah, just like Wilma (whose name doesn't make me quite as nostalgic, by the way).
Betty would be kind of like Midge. Remember Midge,
Barbie's very first best friend?
Midge always had to stay home and babysit Pepper, who wasn't really Barbie's little sister (who was Skipper) and was more Tammy's little sister, but was my version of Barbie's little sister because that's what my mother bought me even though Pepper was freakishly bigger than Barbie -- especially the head.
Anyway Midge would babysit while Barbie went out with Ken, mostly because I didn't have an Allen doll so they could double date.
If I had a best friend like that, I would name her Betty.
