Growing up, I was never really a fan of Sesame Street. As I got older, I fell back in love with Sesame Street and everything it was meant to be. From Elmo to the Cookie Monster, even the Count, the characters and the puppeteers who make them come to life is unbelievable. This past week, a new viral video came across the Internet, as Cookie Monster is now a life coach.
While rather this is a serious subject of the problems we deal with in life, Cookie Monster offers the simplest, and calmest suggestions. I laughed when the woman said she lost her job. Cookie Monster replied with where did it go. Or even how the guy was eating a cookie, and was coughing since the cookie was dry. Cookie Monster replied with you need some milk to make it moist.
Come to think of it, there is sort of a life lesson here. When we are sad, or we want to talk to someone about something, usually it is over cookies and milk. It makes everyone feel better. Cookie Monster reminds us that any problem is solvable, especially with cookies. While browsing this video, the next suggested video had John Oliver of HBO’s Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.
Oliver was explaining how to enjoy cookies in the United Kingdom (UK). Oliver even suggested having some tea with your cookies. In Cookie Monster fashion, he presented Oliver with the letter “t”.
So after getting carried away, and watching a few of these videos, it shows the problems we deal with in life are solvable. We should find humor and reason with the challenges we are faced with on a daily basis. Take a few steps back, and have a cookie! Maybe eat it in private like Cookie Monster would to give yourself a much needed laugh.
Finally, I would like to share the video Cookie Monster did with Martha Stewart.
