New Respect

I have always respected and adored Sesame Street. Those people, the Muppets, their creators, the adults who have committed their lives to the show, taught me and the generations that have come since our ABCs, our numbers, and so much more. And let's be honest, the "so much more" is the really important stuff. My admiration and gratitude to them knows no bounds. Are we clear on this? Good.

Then you understand what it means when I say, as of this afternoon, I admire them more than ever. Why, you ask? Three words:


Yep. And special props to Roscoe Orman. Who, with all the seriousness, legitimacy and love required of the dad-figure he is, and the total commitment from the actor he is, talks and sings and advises about...going potty.

There are so many reasons I have never had children. Bodily functions are high on the list. So props ~ mad props ~ to Sesame Street.

Those are Pobble Thoughts. That and a buck fifty will get you coffee, unless you're Roscoe Orman, in which case, I'm buying.

Is it bad that my first thought, at this point in my life is it's a good reason not to have aging parents also? Mom now thinks toilet paper goes on the floor...where can I get this video?

I'm sorry. Did I type that outloud?

Thank you. Next time I feel bad about being infertile, I'm seeking this out!

Krystal ~ Laugh on, woman. With as many kids as you have (and YAY for every one of them), you rate right up there with Elmo and Roscoe in my opinion.

GNGirl ~ there something you and I aren't allowed to type to each other? Damn. I missed that memo. Anyway, I suggest anywhere videos are sold. Let me rephrase that; anywhere *children's* videos are sold.

Cracker Lilo ~ Hm. That wasn't quite what I wanted to bring up for you. Still, if it helps... Hm.
