I & n

November 7, 2009

Lauren, School

We’ve been watching the Old School Sesame Street videos at school (while I get the cots out for nap), and when the ‘Capital I’ song came on, I froze – mid-cot-getting. The harmony on that song really creeped me out as a kid, and for a moment I had a little trouble breathing.

I showed it to Lloyd on YouTube, and immediately following it is the sorrowful and haunting tune about *sob* lonely lowercase n. Sheesh, no wonder I have trouble anthopomorphising everything now as an adult. Isn’t that right, computer?

    But n gets a friend in the end. A boy n even. The happy ending doesn’t do it for you?

    Dang it, now I have the number song stuck in my head again. One, two, three, FOUR, five, six seven eight, NINE, ten, e-LEV-en, twelve…

      I dunno -- I just watched the pilot for “V” (thank you, hulu) and that alien ‘n’ is probably a lizard ‘n’ who is part of a plot to enslave and then eat all the lowercase letters.


    • Lloyd Said on:

      I think the happy ending had more to do with a psychotic break than any actual happy ending. The give-away is the fear that the woodland creatures show at the arrival of the rocket-ship.

    I thought for sure I was going to come hang with n and they’d be a word.

    I like the capital I melody…..sounds like a “Mama’s & Papa’s” tune.

    Did you get rid of all the cleavage tags?


  5. Peggy Said on:

    I thought lower case n was going to combine with alien n to form m….and m would have many friends.

    I like the Capital I song too…it’s quite snappy compared to my childhood song that can still cause me to wince and cover my neck.

    What I really want to hear one more time is the song about the ladybug’s picnic.
