My son got to meet Joe from Blue’s Clues last week. He watches the show all the time--so I think I can be forgiven for thinking he might be at least a little excited about this. Yet when he was face-to-face with the guy that sings “Mail Time!” to him every morning he was all, “eh. Whatever.”
I may have a two year-old teenager on my hands.
Poor Joe tried to engage him in conversation, posed for a few photos and even did the Blue Skidoo dance for him.
I finally had to intervene.
"Hey! Why don't you give Joe a high-five? He'd love a high-five!"
Joe held out his hand. My son gave him a high-five and practically ran out of the room.
As we were driving home, my son summed his meeting like this:
"Joe's a nice man. Joe needs a haircut."
If he thinks Joe needs a haircut I wonder what he'll have to say when he meets Santa.
