Pondering Cookie Monster
The other day I was reading one of Adam's favorite Sesame Street books to him - the one about Cookie Monster sharing his cookies with Elmo and Zoe.
When we finished I asked Adam, "So what about Cookie Monster? What color is he?"
"Blue!", he said.
"And, what does Cookie Monster like to eat?"
"No! No, mama!" Adam insisted. "Ad-ma say what about Cookie."
"OK, Adam. You tell Mommy about Cookie Monster."
"Cookie have no nose and no tun (tongue). And Zoe have pink nose and tun like a heart."
I guess it's just a minor detail that Cookie Monster must have a hard time tasting or smelling those cookies.
To think I've been so woefully unobservant about the Sesame Street clan all these years.
