“everyone carries around his own monsters.” // r. pryor
granted, considering the source, this probably isn’t what mr. pryor had in mind – but cut me some slack – it’s almost impossible trying to find a clever quip uttered by the likes of an elmo or a fraggle.
but, frankly, if i thought toting around my daughter’s cookie monster hand puppet would be considered de rigueur – i’d probably give it a go at least once – but since carrying one of those would render me rather inept in the eyes of my kid, i’ll give it a pass.
yet – had i known that roughly 30 years after i chucked my dress-up bags in the bin, that they would become the clever alternative to a lazy leather tote, i would’ve hung on to them, better than that, i would’ve washed, conditioned, and brushed them out lovingly bi-weekly as well…
