Who's Your Favorite Sesame Street Character?

NEW YORK - NOVEMBER 09:  Sesame Street co-foun...Image by Getty Images via @daylifeI haven't actually watched Sesame Street in ages.  After all, my kids are all grown up.  I still love the Muppets, though.  Jeffrey and I stopped at a gift shop about a week ago.  They had a little bit of everything - it was a huge gift shop.  We didn't buy anything, because it was a gift shop, and that always seems to mean outrageous prices.  But I did have to look, and they had some really cute little stuffed Sesame Street characters.

Most people like Elmo or Cookie Monster.  Me, I've always loved Oscar.  Yeah, I know he's a grouch, but I just relate to him somehow.  It's probably the way he has a hard time getting along with others or just would sometimes like to be left alone.  I understand that completely - interacting with people is sometimes more than I can take, and I just need to be left alone for a bit.  Maybe I'm a grouch, too!?  Not really, just introverted enough that it takes effort for me to interact with people sometimes.  Depends on the people, though.  There are some people I just click with.  I guess that's true for everyone...

I think my little grandson is going to be a really outgoing little guy, at least he is now.  Takes after his Uncle Cory, I guess.  It probably won't make much sense to buy him a personalized oscar the grouch. I'll probably have to get him an Elmo - and get Oscar for myself - just not at the gift shop.  Does anybody really ever outgrow stuffed animals and Sesame Street?
