So, I go swimming this morning and when I return there’s a plain manilla envelope waiting for me between the screen and front door. It’s addressed simply with the return address as Hollywood, CA. No postage. Nothing. I open this to discover a letter from none other than Kermit the Frog. In it he states:
Fan Ceris (My name is handwritten)
My secretary has let me know that you are a big fan of yours truly. She says that you worship the lilypad I croak on, and that you need more of me.
I am afraid I must disappoint you on the last point, as my heart belongs to another …. I think you know who, but if she knew, she might hurt me. She can be very persuasive.
However, if I give you more of me in the form of some of my work that makes me tingle with joy, and you don’t tell “You. Know. Who.” we can make this our little secret, don’t you think? Would you like that? Your FB friends won’t tell, will they?
Anyway, it’s time to play the music, it’s time to light the lights…. And enjoy!!!
Inside this package were some burned DVDs of ALL 5 seasons of The Muppet Show and several of the films on one other DVD. Now, I have an inkling as to who may have done this wonderful gesture (they have no way of knowing that I already own Seasons 1-3 - where they got 4 and 5 I’d love to know!!! But what a generous thought? What effort? What kindness?
I look forward to checking out some of these DVDs to see exactly what is contained on them and if there is anything different from what I own…. I’m so very curious and so very touched. And I love the mystery.
Also, I have to admit, I was a little excited thinking for just a moment that I’d received something from the frog himself. (Obviously not, as there’s no postage, etc. but a girl can imagine and dream/fantasize, if just for a second or two - can’t she?)
