How 'alive' do you treat your doll? I mean, do you have conversations with them? (On a rational level, of course.) Treat them like a member of the family, or in a human sense? I don't own my own doll yet, but I have carried out mental conversations with objects before. Ok, I have no mental issues. XD It's something I do when I'm bored, it's not like I think the objects I talk to are alive, but I do think those little conversation endow the objects with even more personality. Am I making sense? XP I don't think I am. I'll probably re-read this post later and kick myself for it.
