Cool: Watching and loving Mr. Rogers as he rides around his living room on a kid's tricycle when you're about 3 years old.
Not cool: When your older sister and brother make fun of Mr. Rogers so bad that you get furious and start yelling at them and burst into tears.
** This happened yesterday at our house with Sam and Kate (only it was Little Einsteins) and I couldn't help but think of you and your beloved Mr. Rogers. Can you ever forgive me?
No. I am obviously damaged beyond repair by what you and Joe did.
That, combined with the fact that you would never let me play with your Strawberry Shortcake dolls...something about not wanting me to cut off all their hair and otherwise destroy them. Whatever.
Oh yeah, and all the times Joe would play fun games with me and Sam, like tying us to a chair and timing us to see how long it would take to extricate ourselves (you'd be surpised how well tube socks work to tie one's hands). Oh no, my friend, sister of mine, I remember the Mr. Rogers instance quite clearly, and forgiveness will be long in coming.
Okay, no, I don't remember that at all, but, oh, Heather, that was hilarious...poor Kate. I feel her pain. ;)
