The opera in question is Carmen and after accepting the post, asked me if I knew the show. (I am NOT an opera girl, not a bit, musical theater sure, but opera, nope.) So I scoured my brain and replied, Sure! I remember the orange from Sesame Street
(OK, it's conceivable that he missed it, not all of us were glued to PBS as kids. Heck, when there's only 13 channels and 1 of them has Sesame Street, The Electric Company AND 321 Contact which would you watch?)
Me: Yeah, the orange rolled out of the fruit bowl and gathered a sponge for hair and a rubber band for her mouth. She sang and when she hit the high note her face flew off.
Kev: That's the most horrific thing I've ever heard. If I saw it, it gave me nightmares and I've blocked it from my memory.
Me: Wus... 2 year old me slept just fine.
To celebrate a time when Mister Snuffalapagus was still invisible, Mr Hooper ran the store and Bert and Ernie were just 2 really good friends splitting the rent... Here you go.
