A container of milk, and a stick of butter.
A loaf of bread, a container of milk, and a stick of butter.
(Of course, the little boy said, "stick a butta".)
Does anyone else remember that bit from Sesame Street?
He recites this litany to himself all the way to the store... a loaf a bread, a container a milk, and a stick a butta.
When he gets to the store he remembers the loaf of bread and container of milk, but he can't remember the last thing til a Butterfly flits past the open door.
He carries his purchases home and bursts in, triumphantly shouting, "Mommy, Mommy! I remembered! A loaf a bread, a container a milk and a stick a butta!"
What triggered that memory this morning?
Micah walking out the door to school, after being given copious instructions, muttering to himself, "A large, white, oval serving plate from the kitchen. A large, white, oval serving plate from the kitchen. A large, white, oval serving plate from the kitchen."
I hope he remembers!
That's why I love Sesame Street. I have so many memories of bits from that show (including that one) and just the thought of them makes me happy.ReplyDelete

"one, two, two little beds, one, two, two sleepy heads....."
I LOVE that one. It always got me every time! I always thought that poor little guy would never remember the stickabutta. But everytime, he did. And his mom was so pleased. Another favourite Sesame Street memory is: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve LADYBUGS...at the ladybugs picnic!!! And, hey, while we're remniniscing, how about the perogy factory caption with the high pitched soprano, "Pe-e-e-e-rogy, etc.etc." sigh. thanks for the memories, Bob McGrath.ReplyDelete

"Six Soccer Socks..."
"They played jump rope, but the rope it broke, so they just sat around telling Knock-knock jokes, Lady Bugs twelve, at the lady bug picnic..." gotta love the lady bugs!
And the Peroghy song! And the Dessert man falling down the stairs!
Oh, yeah. Sesame Street shaped us!
