Family Life: Cookie Monster

You Are Cookie Monster
Misunderstood as a primal monster, you're a true hedonist with a huge sweet tooth.

You are usually feeling: Hungry. Cookies are preferred, but you'll eat anything if cookies aren't around.

You are famous for: Your slightly crazy eyes and usual way of speaking

How you live your life: In the moment. "Me want COOKIE

This is interesting because way back when working for the Sacramento PBS station, I was THE COOKIE MONSTER. We were having a special event and they needed one person to be cookie monster and one person to be big bird. I don't remember if my boss volunteered me or I volunteered. What does silly me do the day before I am supposed to do this event. A friend came over to my apartment and we laid out by the pool sunbathing. Except, instead of using sunblock, I used suntan oil. I was freshly baked. So, I had to pour my sunburned body into the cookie monster outfit, stuff it with pillows to fill it out and stand out in the 100 degree weather shaking and baking. The kids and some of the parents, too, thought I was the real deal, so did my best imitation of Cookie Monster. I carried a basket of cookies to hand out to the kids, but every time I shook my blue belly, they all fell out. Then everyone would go scrambing to pick up the cookies. I even got to take a ride in a hot air balloon with the Mayor. Have you ever tried climbing into a hot air balloon basket in a cookie monster outfit. Let's just say I fell in at the mayor's feet.

A fun time was had by all, but boy was I sick afterwards.

  1. I got Bert, which is really funny, because my oldest friend and I used to say that she was Bert and I was Ernie.
