When the Kid and Adult Worlds Collide September 23 2011
I'm a huge fan of nearly all the HBO series, and a few on Showtime (Dexter premiere Oct. 2!!!!), but the shows are a Sunday night thing for me and the husband, usually. So earlier this week while we were having breakfast mid-week we caught what sounded like the honky tonk True Blood theme song on tv and when I turned I was like whaaaa? Sesame Street parody -- True Mud. Brilliant! The Bill and Sookie characters were spot on (mysterious and ditzy-blood/mud-lovin). The toddler K no tiene ni idea about True Blood and the connection went over most kids head, I'm sure (I hope). Looks like its a re-run from last year but last year we weren't watching Sesame Street on a daily basis. Loved it, and for the record, I'm on Team Eric Northman.
It's a funny thing when the kid and adult worlds collide. The toddler K is actually starting to reject some of my adult music. She absolutely protests when I play anything Ryan Adams when I'm driving. But she asks for Madonna's Cherish over and over again by yelling from the carseat in the back, "That one, again, maaaaas!" And today we were driving and listening to Foster the People's Pumped Up Kicks, where the chorus repeats over and over again: All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you'd better run, better run, outrun my gun/ All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you'd better run, better run, faster than my bullet.
And when it was over, the toddler K yells from the back, "Again! I want bullet! I want bullet!" Nice. Real nice.
