|The Day Snuffy Had the Sniffles|

Hey, Kiddos! Cold season is upon us and The BOOG and I are NOT immune. This is our third day of sniffles so far and it is very taxing to say the least. On the upside, we are both in cuddle-mode, which is always nice. So while we break out the crayons and keep warm under our covers, I thought I would share a little Sesame Street Cheer.
In The Day Snuffy Had the Sniffles, Big Bird is on his way to visit with Mr. Snuffleupagus. Snuffy has a case of the sniffles and, being a good friend, Big Bird is going to pay a visit to his cave to cheer him up.
On his way there, Big Bird is greeted by other concerned Sesame Street friends. Each friend gives Snuffy a gift to help cheer him up. By the end of the trip, Snuffy will be the proud owner of a cookie tin, with a few cookie crumbs, a jar of sardine-and-saurkraut soup (from you know who), a bottle cap collection (again, you can only guess), a few choice books, a box of tissues and a pint of half melted ice cream.
As Big Bird begins to feel a bit embarrassed for having not brought anything to share with Snuffy, the gifts begin to slip!
Snuffy blows his nose, with a hankie the size of a table cloth, and tells Bird that what he really wanted most was a visit from his good old pal Bird.
All's well that ends well for the Sesame Street Gang. See you next time.
