Came across this video while searching for a peg for this website I'm designing.
It brings back many happy memories.
I remember the day our first TV set was delivered. I can't remember how old I was. I was in pre-school. My mom and I were home. The delivery man setup the black and white TV with brown wood panels and explained its functions to my mom. He switched it on and turned the channel to... Sesame Street! I was hooked.
I learned so much from Sesame Street: how to break down new words into syllables or letters so I could learn to pronounce them (C-O-FFF-EEE); what it means to love a friend (Big Bird and Snuffy); that grouches are cool too; how to count backwards; that pinball machines are colorful and awesome; if you can't sleep, count sheep; and how to ask for water in Spanish. Hahaha.
So from the little kid in me to the little kid in you... "Sunny day, sweeping the clouds away...on my way to where the air is sweet... Can you tell me how to get, how to get to Sesame Street?"
