The Saucier's Apprentice

IMG Saucy Walker ad early 1950s

Yeah, but can she bake? They say she does everything. Everything does include baking, you know.

And since she is a Saucy Walker, perhaps she can make some sauces, too. Chocolate sauce is nice, but it does get all over clothes and things. So maybe she could also throw in a load of laundry, after she and Betsy get done with the baking.

Mother's been co-opted, I believe! Still, it means more time at the country club, playing tennis with that dishy pro. And sitting by the pool with one of those drinks with a little paper umbrella in it.

That sounds really good, actually. Too bad I don't have any Saucy Bakers or Betsy McCookies around here. Or, for that matter, a country club.

Not even a little paper umbrella, alas! Still, it's really for the best. Because while Mother's off improving her serve, who knows what else those clever over-achieving dolls might get up to?
