Only someone as "itsy bitsy teenie weenie" as Dolly Melissa could wear that yellow polkadot bikini and not be afraid to show it off!
Here's how she got that infamous swimsuit: Dolly and her parents were on their way to the clothing store to buy some new swimsuits. The local radio station was playing back-to-back summer-themed songs heralding the arrival of practically every kid's favorite season. When the song "Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polkadot Bikini" by Bryan Hyland started playing, a shock of realization came upon mom's face. "I just remembered a friend of mine getting one of those bikins for her birthday last month," she exclaimed. "She said she didn't like it because the size was too small for her...and besides, she preferred a one-piece suit." "Do you think it'll fit...her?" dad said, pointing at the back seat where Dolly was admiring the scenery. "There's one way to find out," she replied as she turned the car around. "Sweetheart," she shouted to Dolly, "I've got a little surprise for you." "What kind of surprise?" Dolly asked suspiciously. "Trust me, you'll like it!" mom answered as she drove down a side street to her friend's house. Once there, the friend showed the threesome the "teenie weenie bikini". "You're right!" exclaimed the shocked dad. "It's not even big enough to cover the, uh, 'vital parts'." (He remembered he was in the presence of a child.) "Well, it might never fit me," confessed the friend as she then saw Dolly, "but I think it might be perfect for her." The two ladies called Dolly over and placed the two bikini halves on her little body. "You're right, it is perfect!" said mom. "And the real beauty is, it's still got the price tags and 'protective strip'," announced the friend, "so Dolly, my dear, you will be the first to wear it." "So what do you think of it?" asked mom as Dolly looked in the mirror. "Would you like to wear it?" "I think it looks pretty," cooed Dolly with a beaming smile. "I'LL TAKE IT!" "All right, come this way," said the friend as she and mom escorted Dolly into the bedroom. A short while later, while dad was on the sofa looking at a magazine, mom and friend emerged from the bedroom. "I'd like to introduce to you," announced mom,"DOLLY'S NEW SWIMSUIT!!!" "TA-DAAAAH!!!!" exclaimed Dolly as she sprang out of the bedroom and strutted around in the bikini which now fit her perfectly. "Oh, sweetheart, you look gorgeous!!!" exclaimed the now applauding dad as Dolly gave him a big "thank you" hug. "Well, it didn't take much to alter it," said the friend. "Just cut the strings, tie them in the right place, and voila!" "I love it!" cooed the happy little girl as she hugged the two ladies. "So are you gonna wear that thing all day or change back into your clothes?" dad asked. "Sorry, Dad," giggled the blushing girl as she went back into the bedroom. "Honey," asked dad, "did we ever behave that way when we got new clothes?" "Do you think we ever will?" replied mom. Then after thinking about it for a moment, the answered in unison with a giggle: "Naaaah!!!!"
