When I first came to this country, when I was seven years old
from Venezuela, I did not know how to speak any English.
There was only two words that I knew and they were and wow, that
was a very expressive kid.
So like the creative person that I was, am I created a new innovative
English based language called Watch Watch.
I would go up to little kids without knowing English, only
my language that I created and I would go up to them and I'd be
like, why she was watching?
Oh, was she obviously kids thought that I was weird because
I just kept repeating the same word over and over again.
That's just how English sounded to me.
Was, was I mean, if you think about it, if you say that's English
I mean, I was pretty weird.
So obviously I didn't have a lot of friends when I first started
you know, school and stuff, but I did have a neighbor and her
She was called Jessica, but I called her Jesica.
She was a cute little American girl.
She didn't have that many friends either.
So she had to settle for me.
The watch you watch girl.
I love going to Jessica's house.
This girl had everything that I did not in my little immigrant
She had Kit Kats El Marshmallow cookies, your brownies, your
twinkies and every kind of potato chips that you could possibly
imagine everything that my mom did not ever allow me to eat
So not only did she have these sweet, sweet sweets, but she
also had Barbie Heaven.
This bitch had about 53 different Barbies and four cans to
please them all beach glass, Barbie litter hair.
Barbie little Mermaid Barbie, who could forget the classic
Y'all know Barbie had a career.
She was an independent woman.
Anyway, I would walk up into this girl's house.
I felt bad because she always wanted to talk about school and
wanted to talk about things, but I didn't understand her.
So I would just like walk in and I'd be like, oh hm.
As I was playing with the Barbies, I did not care what she had
I did not understand what she had to say.
All I cared about was the Barbies.
Hell, Jessica didn't even even have to be in the room for me
to be playing with her.
She would be watching Mary Kate Ashley Olsen for all I cared
All I wanted was to play with Barbies.
Because when I came to this country when I was seven years old
My mom only allowed me one Barbie and the barbie that I had didn't
So she was like this because her neck had popped off.
I still loved her though.
She always played the Eagle Barbie in my little scenarios
Unfortunately, my time with didn't last long.
One time when my mom came to pick me up, her dad, he opened the
door and he was in his underwear and my mom almost had a heart
She called my name so loud that I thought someone was killed
Anyways, I only saw Yesica at school every now and then.
We would be like, you know, the classic.
I'm cool with you, but I'm not gonna talk to you every now and
then I think of and I'm like, damn so cool to let me play with
her Barbies and eat her food.
You go, Jessica, let me know in the comments if you played with
Barbies also, let me know if you had weird little friends that
What kind of toys did you guys play with?
Because I know not everyone played with Barbies, even though
that's the best game ever.
Let me know in the comments, I'm totally gonna read them and
I really do read them just because I don't come back.
Doesn't mean I don't read them.
I definitely read them.
Ok, guys, that's my time.
