The Return of Grand Mal Seizure Elmo

A couple of Christmases ago, Q-ster had a traumatic first encounter with a Tickle Me Elmo (see pictorial rendition of story here), so I was somewhat skeptical when my sister asked me to unearth the toy for her visit with cousin Remy last weekend. I was prepared for Buster and Remy to have the same teary reaction to Elmo’s thrashing and convulsing.

I shouldn’t have worried.


Buster instinctively knew that the proper handle for Elmo is his eyeballs and was perfectly content to watch the tickle-seizure. After all, this is a younger brother who is accustomed to having his older brother jump at him yelling, “AHHHHHHHHHH!” on a regular basis. Remy was similarly unphased, and the whole party went merrily on its tickley way.

It's really true about 2nd children. Almost nothing phases them. Thank heavens, because otherwise the poor children would be living in a constant state of trauma.

Haha! Those eyeballs are perfect for grabbing. :)

Of course, the eyeballs! Why didn't I think of that?
