We are Sesame Street watchers at our house. Sometimes the kids get hooked on a certain topic and they want to watch that episode over and over and over again. Yaks has recently been totally into TRIANGLES. Telly and Baby Bear attend the Triangle Lover's Meeting and they sing the triangle anthem, which goes like this:
"Oh Triangle, oh triangle With your sides of three Oh Triangle, oh triangle Forever we love thee!"
Yaks has taken to finding anything long and pointy to be his triangle scepter and he walks around the house singing:
"Tri-ngle...Tri-ngle...Tri-ngle" and waving his scepter around.
We've had to put the knives, the BBQ tongs, the knife sharpener and the stick lighters in very hard-to-reach places, because the kid is a Triangle Lover. They are a desperate bunch!
The other night we were eating dinner and I had sliced up some oranges for him to eat. He pulled one apart, looked at it for a moment and then said, "Tri-ngle!"
Another bit I love in this episode is a guest appearance by James Blunt. I've never been a huge fan of him, but I've got to say that he won over my heart when he changed his lyrics from "You're Beautiful" to "My Triangle" and filled the verses with clever references to all things triangular. I just really appreciate it when famous people take the time to be a little silly, to allow us to laugh at and with them, especially realizing that parents often watch these shows with their kids and hey...we need a little entertainment, too! Thanks, James Blunt!
