Last night I made myself step away from work, leave my phone behind, and park it on the couch next to Scott for some TV time. We’re about to embark on a crazy 10 days, and I wanted to enjoy a quiet night of being lazy together.
So I poured a glass of wine, and we pulled up Netflix. This time, instead of rambling off movie titles at each other while we take turns vetoing for 45 minutes, I knew exactly what I wanted to watch. Scott was on board, too.
I heard someone talking about this a few months ago, and I’ve been intrigued ever since. Scott and I have been enjoying documentaries lately, especially ones that uncover the scenes behind magical children’s characters (see also: Becoming Santa).
I don’t want to ruin the doc for you, I’ll just say that Kevin Clash (puppeteer and creator of the Elmo we know and love today) is one my new favorite people. His story, his determination, his spirit – inspirational.
And I can maybe forgive Elmo for all the times he’s annoyed me to no end now. A little.
So, if you’re looking for something to watch, maybe check it out. Not at all sponsored. Nobody asked me to blog about this. I just really dug it.
