I would like to share a traumatic event from my childhood. I vividly remember seeing a skit on the Muppet Show that simultaneously fascinated and traumatized me. It originally aired in 1976 and I don't know if I saw it then, when I was 3, or a year or two later in reruns - but I know I only saw it once, and in black and white. It made such an impact on me I still remember it in detail. In fact I was beginning to wonder if it was real or if I was just making it all up.

I finally found it tonight. And I found it with this search term:

"muppet show vending machine takes your face"

Now that I've seen it again, and I know that it's real, I'm not sure I'm going to sleep tonight. When I close my eyes I will see that muppet WITH NO FACE.

Too Much Cocaine

Mommy was not feeling well and had to stay in the bathroom longer than usual during which my two boys, ages 1 and 3 took my new bag of flour out of the cupboard and destroyed my house. This is from ONE 5lb bag. Don't believe me? Hand a full bag to a 3 year old and see what happens.
