During a random wandering of my mind today, it became clear to me that I have neglected to give the proper credit to some of the characters that have shaped who I am. Honoring those who have helped us to become who we are is such a good practice and I try to do that, but I have neglected a few very important ones. For this, I am sorry and I will do my best to remedy that at once.
Our families teach us so much and at this time, I must recognize a family that taught me to live my life freely. Yakko, Wakko and Dot, thank you so much for showing me that living life by the seat of your pants and bursting into impromptu songs are a normal and acceptable way to live. Without you, I think I'd be a stuffy fool, afraid to branch out and sing the ingredients in ice cream, all the countries in the world, or all the words in the English language. You also taught me that it's a great big universe and we're all really puny, we're just tiny little specs about the size of macaroni. For that, I am forever grateful.
Whew. I feel better. I really needed to get that off my chest. I needed them to know how much I appreciate them and how much they've taught me. I know that I am who I am today because of their leading.
This post is dedicated to all of you that remember when cartoons used to be good and were quality shows.
