Remember when I said I must live in a cave? Or under a rock? Or on Mars, even though I'm a woman and clearly therefore should be from Venus if I am from another planet? Well, I'm feeling that way again.
What's the deal with Elmo? When did he first hit the scene? I don't remember him from my childhood, the first time I remember him is when the Tickle-Me's invaded. At the time I thought, "sure, he's cute, he has a funny high pitched voice, what's not to like?" and moved on with my life. When I was pregnant with Hanna, sometimes (read: every single morning) I didn't have much energy so Hallie and I started watching PBS. Clifford, Curious George, SuperWhy, Hallie loved all those. But when Sesame Street came on more mornings than not she would walk over and turn the t.v. off and up I had to get. Nonetheless, somehow, Elmo has still managed to creep into her (my) life. She's addicted to him. Elmo anything - she wants it. What is his magical appeal? Please, explain.
Next. What is EMO? Someone tried to explain it to me, and I still just don't really "get it". I mean, I looked it up on Wikipedia, but all it talked about there was music. And I thought that it referred to pictures. So, a little confused. Please, explain. Because someone told me that my daughter is poster child for Emo: (I keep capitalizing Emo. Is it supposed to be?)
If Emo is a type of picture, and you can explain to me what it looks like, I'll take a few of myself, Emo style. That could be fun. And last but not least, I'd really like to know, is Elmo Emo?
