Our daughter ate her Blue’s Clue’s mac&cheese out of an Elmo bowl with her Winne the Pooh cutlery set as she sipped milk from a Dora the Explorer sippie cup. Whatever missed her mouth ended up safely in the pouch of her Snoopy bib.

    My sci-fi students last semester told me that Cayce reminded them of me.

    I’m not sure whether to be flattered or alarmed.

    Just keep that Michelin man away from me.

  2. Hah! That was a laugh-out-loud post. I did read the book! I even assigned it in a lit class a few years ago.

    Amazingly enough (considering how dense I can be), I thought of Cayce right away. I also enjoy teaching that novel & might find a way to teach it this spring…

    KF: I think flattered. Who doesn’t want to be a coolhunter?

    Dennis: I think any parent is amused (and a little terrified) of the media soup all our kids swim in. It’s either laugh or cower at the towering Elmos and feed-me-now Winnie the Poohs.

    Chuck: I don’t think Cayce would have survived as a child of the 00s… Even the *diapers* have Elmo on them.
