The story of Roly-Poly ~ A 100-word essay

Updated on January 20, 2012
Roly-Poly watches me while I sleep.

I have a doll that I have had since birth. I’m not sure of the name, but my mom always called her Roly- Poly. At least I think she was talking about the doll. Roly-Poly is my most prized possession. I want to be buried with her. I sure hope I go first. Her boyfriend was for sale at E-bay but I felt that since she had been my only child for over 40 years, she might get a bit jealous so I didn’t buy him. He was cute, but he didn't fit in at my house. Poor child.

Roly-Poly had a boyfriend but it didn't work out.

      Michael, you'd help with chores? Then yes, I would be honored to read to you! Oh, and I'm sure the poem will be wonderful!

      Lisa, I love your sense of humor.

      I am working on that poem.

      I want it to be good.

      my thoughts are starting to roam

      Isn't it always great in the beginning?

      Did you like my reply and reference to yours

      I would be your donkey anytime

      and help you with your chores

      as long as you read

      some of your works to me

      for this I would be so pleased

      We would then be in harmony

      Much Love,God Bless

      Michael

      Gypsy, it's for the best that Roly Poly doesn't have a boyfriend, he would probably just break her heart. Oh sure, it'd be all great in the beginning, but then he'd trade her in for a Barbie or Bratz doll. They're skinny, wear more makeup, and have exciting careers! =)

      Michael, I promise not to treat you like a donkey in a shed, but he does look like he has a pretty good life!

      Roly Poly is adorable. Too bad she couldn't get a boyfriend.

      Don't mind your oversight

      don't let happen again

      now I know your name is Lisa

      and we can be good friends

      Just don't treat me

      like a "donkey in the shed"

      unless you feed me real good

      and come in and make my bed

      and now my rhyme is over

      by the way my name is Mike

      I hope that my poetry

      you will like

      Much Love

      Michael

      Haha! Thanks for the comment! Yes, very small house. Oh, and I don't mind if you call me E, but my real name is Lisa. I don't think I have that in my profile. Just an oversight.

      E,(hope you don't mind that I call you that)

      Your mama wouldn't call you Roly-Poly, would she?

      If she did ,I'm sure she meant it with much love.

      Now that I look at it it does bear some resemblence.

      Do you have a small house? Just some cleaner humor!

      Just joking.

      Much Love

      Michael
