    When I was a kid... I didn't have very many

    toys. Barely any actually. I didn't like them. I couldn't imagine life taking care of a fake baby. I wanted a real baby to take care of. It wasn't possible for me to imagine. I got extremely bored if someone wanted to play because it wasn't real, therefore pointless. Another...
