Daniel’s favorite furry monster is — surprise surprise — Elmo.
When he means “Sesame Street,” he says, “Elmo.” But when he means “Elmo,” he also says, “Elmo.” I tend to default to the latter when trawling the web for Elmo vids, since Elmo shows up on both Sesame Street, as well as his spin-off, Elmo’s World.
Tonight, Daniel has seen, SIX FREAKIN’ TIMES, this partial episode from Elmo’s World, which is all about jackets. Not that I planned to have Daniel see this six times; he requested it, saying, “More?” as well as making the hand-signs for “more.”
Last night, it was Elmo, with Jack Black, which was all about the OCTAGON. That one he wanted to see — oh — five times? Six?
Until Daniel learns to enjoy the, um, subtler humour of Cookie Monster, he’s with Elmo. Good thing the music isn’t insipid, like the songs of a certain local purple dinosaur we know. YAY!
