I promise this is the final post about Sesame Street for the morning (but anything can happen in the afternoon…)
I have had many serious discussions about the following clip (I think all of them have been with Jess). I could never quite remember what happened in it, but I remembered it was creepy. I think I’ve mixed the images with another clip that was even creepier, but I think this one provided the foundation for the memory. On review I realise this isn’t so weird. I think I found it creepy when I was little because I thought it was a real little girl and not an adult acting as one (although I knew it was Lily Tomlin, so I don’t know what was going on in my head).
