So sorry, Sesame Street

This morning saw the unfortunate demise of Auggie’s first library video. Tragically, he disemboweled Kids’ Favorite Songs while I was working in my office, unawares. So most of this afternoon was spent calling various video stores, looking for a replacement.

And the honor goes to: Best Buy! For once, this store did something other than annoying the living heck out of me. I didn’t have to wait in line to check out, I didn’t have to converse with a seventeen-year-old who knew nothing about the product I wanted to know more about, I didn’t spend more than what I knew I could find it for online.

I know what you’re thinking: How did your little seventeen-month-old manage to pull the videotape out of the casing? The Incredible Hulk himself goes all green and snitty when he needs to open that little flap dealie! And I’m afraid that I don’t have a good answer for you. It took me four tries to get into it myself.

He’s a pint-sized Houdini. Must’ve been from when I read The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay while I was pregnant.
