Confessions

DESPITE having a 15, yes FIFTEEN year working history as a Stage Manager in theatre, I always thought that the "kids" on Sesame Street, aka, Gabi, Miles, etc. were, um, the actual relatives of the actors that played their older relatives.

Please stop laughing.

Um, they're not.

You know, just in case you were wondering....

So not laughing. I was crushed -- CRUSHED -- when I found out (AS AN ADULT) that Susan and Gordon weren't really married. And that except for Bob, those aren't their real names.

I am pretty sure that when they were little kids, the real Gaby and the real Miles were on the show. You're not entirely wrong. :-)

I hope Lo is right, cuz I totally thought that was the real Miles when I was a kid. I didn't realize "Miles" was still on the show.

Do they talk about him being adopted? Cuz that'd be cool.

"those aren't their real names."
So, um, this is how I learned this truth. Like, just now.
I am sad that Gordon isn't really Gordon...

ummm...i just left four (seriously, FOUR) responses to your twitter about pullups. Apparently I can.not.stop.responding. Sorry. I just have a lot of diaper knowledge. So go check it out ;-) And I swear that if I responded too many times you can call me 'crazy' and I won't be too offended, because it's true. LOL
