Day 13: 30 Days of TV - Favorite Childhood Show

Day 13: Your favorite childhood show

I struggled with this purely for my uncanny love for the Captain Planet theme song and remembering that I used to watch it with a blue ring with waves in it and pretended to be Linka anytime the powers were called.

But, its not Sesame Street.

There were muppets, Maria, songs, dances, learning and Kermit.

I was a latchkey kid growing up as well as having a brother that was more high-maintance than me growing up, which meant that the television was a babysitter. My mother when at home would use it as a baby sitter and Sesame Street was enthralling.

And I fell in love with the characters, but mostly Grover.

Kermit and Grover were my favorite characters. It was something in the gentle, supportive, caring nature that they expressed. Through Sesame Street I realized the traits of what was important in friends.

And I have a best friend who is the equivalent to a blend of Kermit and Grover.


So I guess this is more a friend love letter to her.

Ceasing Ramble.

I'll always be "NEAR" and never be "FAR" from you, my best friend. :-)
