I had my picture taken with The Count, from Sesame Street, today. I was very excited about this.
I didn't realize that I wanted this until earlier in the week, when I looked at the media advisory from the US Census Bureau about the Census in Schools event I was planning to attend.
Right there, listed along with the Governor, a Senator, and the Director of the Census, were The Count and Rosita!
The Count was there for the students at Bancroft Elementary and a demonstration of the educational materials about the Census that the Bureau is making available to schools nationwide.
But I did get to pose for a picture after the lesson. Great fun!
Though when you compare this picture of me with the picture of my Grandfather at about the same age that I posted earlier this week, it makes you wonder about my level of dignity.
