Soap Soap Soap Soap

Do you remember the pair of furry space aliens on Sesame Street? They would scurry around the telephone saying, "Yip yip yip yip yip yip yip yip. Bbbrrrrring! Bbbrrrring!"

In a usually futile attempt to remember to replace the shrinking bar of soap in the shower, I say to myself, "Soap soap soap soap soap soap soap soap." Sadly, the moment I get to Ahhh, Towel, all thoughts of soap are driven from my mind, and there is no new bar of soap for the next shower.

Tonight, imitating the Yip Yips helped me to remember. Small victories.

I used to love those guys! What ever happened to them?

Probably turned into junkies or something.

Ok, now you've done it, I won't be able to get those voices out of my head. Yip, yip, yip...

I've seen them recently on Sesame Street, doing some song with Telly.

I loved those muppets!

I do the same thing, noting to myself in the shower how I need a new razor, or soap, or a different kind of shampoo, but once I'm out of that environment the thought flies out of my head...until the next time I'm in the shower. Oy.

SwingDaddy found a clip of them on YouTube so we've been watching them yip away today. They are even funnier than I remember.

I had forgotten all about those alien muppets! I'll have to try that trick with my faulty memory.
