Meet Robotics Engineer Barbie, launched just last month.
Gone are the high heels and elaborate outfits. Now Barbie wears sneakers and really loves them. "I'm almost 60 years old and into comfort," she has said, continuing, "jeans, a T shirt, and a light jacket, and I'm good to go. Dress-up not required in the lab."
Barbie loves the life of a techie. She claims you can talk all kinds of gibberish. It doesn't matter if you're right or wrong. According to Barbie, people are afraid to contradict techies, because they think techies are so smart.
And more good news. No more watching her weight. "The long white lab coat covers a multitude of sins," she confided.
Barbie is leaving the girlie stuff behind for good. "Been there, done that," she says. "I was ready for a change, no problem," Barbie reports. She points out that Tolstoy once said
"Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself."
"Doesn't apply to me," Barbie said defiantly, giving her ponytail a flip.
