Sesame Street for the New Millenium


So, I'm working from home today, and Belly is watching Sesame Street in the living room. I just heard Ernie trying to convince Burt that he can talk to an elephant on a banana phone if he'll just use his imagination. Okay, this sounds like the Sesame Street I remember.

Then Bert says, "I, I just can't, Ernie. I'm not emotionally secure enough to do that."


WHAT?!


About a million years ago (in high school, to be exact) I had a tshirt with Bert & Ernie doing some pretty horrid things on the front. At least one of my friends was irreparably damaged by it. Just thought I'd throw that in.

I caught Sesame St. the other day when my youngest was watching it. Is it just me or is it a lot cuter and funnier since we were kids. They had a law and order skit!!

that's crazy! I haven't watched SS since my 10 year old was a baby. They've come a long way. I don't think I'm emotionally secure enough to think about all that, though.

Oh, I hear ya,....the boys were watching Scooby Doo the other day and I hear something about a wireless internet connection! Strange. Not the Scooby Doo I remember.

It has definitely changed. My little one only likes the last 20 minutes with Elmo, she could care less about the rest.

What 4 year old is going to understand what not being emotionally secure means? Ha! That's crazy!

Wow, that's hilarious! I guess I missed that one. It would have had me rolling. I guess they are starting to up the anty on vocubulary these days. Weird.
