When I saw that this week's word was Nostalgic, I must say, I worried a little bit (considering I had to *cough* find a synonym for the word...). After I read Hannah's post though and she explained a bit about what nostaligic means, I perked up like a wilted flower after it gets it's water.
One of my fondest memories of my young childhood days, is when I would recieve a brand new Barbie doll (in this case, a Barbie horse). Let me pause for a moment. I actually do consider this to be bittersweet because think about it, you go from playing with little plastic toys when you were little, to becoming a teenager and your *ahem* toy being something like an itouch, laptop, makeup brushes, etc.
I can remember opening up a Barbie doll (or in this case, once again, a horse) and getting strong whiffs of that plasticy, delightful smell; and then combing it's soft, silky hair.
Is this a weird bittersweet memory? Neh...
