Daily Prompt: Gimme

Was there a special gift or toy you wanted as a child but never received? What was it?

I always wanted an American Girl doll when I was a kid. I remember getting the catalogues every year and just pouring over them. I thought they historical dolls were just the shit and I especially wanted the one that was based in the American Revolution–was that one Samantha? I had forgotten all about them until last year when I was working in the bookstore and people would bring in used copies of the American Girls’ books. Man those were the days!
