NOTE: This was SUPPOSED to post yesterday, but didn’t. I have this issue from time to time with posting from my phone. My apologizes!!!
PROMPT: Something from Sci-Fi You Wished Were Real.
I really pondered this one. I was going to say something cool like the Jedi order (from Star Wars), or something along those lines, but my inner child was tugging at my heart and wanted something else. She wanted me to choose Mr. Snuffleupagus from Sesame Street. *Shrugs* Not sure if that’s SCI-FI, but I’m going with it!
When I grew up in the 70’s, there wasn’t a lot of educational programing for little kids, but what was became the foundation for children’s programming through today: Sesame Street on PBS.
Mr. Sunffleupagus, or Snuffy for short, kind of resembled a Mammoth, and for the longest time, could only be seen by Big Bird. They were best friends and Snuffy was always there for Big Bird to help, to guide, to hug — whatever was needed. But when Big Bird wanted to share with the others on Sesame Street, Snuffy (as big as he was) could always manage to disappear! Poor Big Bird, he kept getting treated as though he had an “imaginary friend.” Years and years later, others caught glimpses of him, and then be became a regular “seen” character.
I wish Snuffy was real. He’s kind hearted, but I’d just love it if he was real and stood in a corner, nodding, when I stated things. Life would be a little less scary with Snuffy, as well as he would be devoted to me as he was to Big Bird; however, it would be great if no one could see him, UNLESS I wanted him seen. He would be a great emotional asset. I’m not a hugger, but I’d be totally okay if he came over and hugged me if I needed it!
Lastly, I have been posting these #bloggingchallenge posts, but my schedule has been so crazy that I haven’t been able to respond to others. I’m going to do my best to remedy this situation and “catch up,” so I can get back in my groove. Thanks for understanding my crazy life…
