Phil came to town.  Phil is one of those magical people who turn every day into an adventure, and every object into a prize.  She’s like a smoking, drinking Mary Poppins, but with a better wardrobe.

Phil brought Didi, a hairdresser’s dummy head.  Didi began the adventure in the wee hours, propped up on a 2×4 outside the bathroom window.

Needless to say, Didi gave some of the crew quite the wake up call.

Phil and I decided that her hair (real human hair, mind you, though it was rather overworked) was in need of a shampoo and a rinse.  It made a world of difference to dear Didi:

Since we were already fully engrossed in our Barbie Doll world, we decided to accessorize.  Really, Didi looked great and Phil and I were as happy as 8-year-olds with American Girl dolls.

But we’re adults.  We couldn’t play with dolls all night.  More of the pack arrived, including 3-year-old Addy.  Phil and I moved on to play Curtain Rod Wars – Phil won, hands down, but made it seem like it didn’t matter that I lost, because that’s the kind of magic she has.  People began loading vehicles to head out to dinner.  Addy and her mother stayed at the house to explore the property.  Meanwhile, poor Didi had met a bad end:


While we waited for our dinner to be served, Addy’s dad got a text message from her mom: “Addy wants to know why there’s a woman in the dumpster.

Honestly, some things just aren’t funny once you have to explain them to a 3-year-old.  Even Phil’s powers have their limits.

Still…  I can’t wait to see what Phil brings on her next visit.

Believe it or not this brings back memories of my sisters first husband. He had a manikin head he would hang out of the trunk of his car and such like that.

Always a good joke! Except to 3-year-olds, I guess.
