In Which I Beg for Impossible Things
Dear Time Travel Scientists,
Should you happen to visit 1985, please give this Playmobil Pyramid playset to seven-year-old me. This is around the time that my Egypt obsession had fully taken hold and I made a scale model of the Sphinx out of hot pink Play-Doh. And I accessorized my favorite blue sweatshirt with foil-printed Tutankhamun motif with hieroglyph print Keds. Clearly I needed this playset to keep me company because I certainly didn't make any friends dressed this way.
This may also prevent me from buying it as a gift for Stella, then refusing to let her touch it.
P.S. If you're feeling especially generous, I will also happily accept the ship and Sphinx.
